So, last week I was on vacation. What did I do on vacation? Crochet a baby blanket, of course! Yes, I know it sounds like a very exciting vacation activity, doesn’t it? Well, that’s not all I did while on vacation. I promise you I did have a lot of fun in sunny Orlando, Florida last week!
I like to save up my bigger crochet projects like this one for trips because it keeps me calm while my husband drives. Yes, it’s true. He keeps his eyes on the road, and I keep mine on the blanket. It just works best for us that way. I don’t realize how fast he’s driving, and I get a gift made!
This baby blanket pattern I’m sharing with you is the best one in the world if you ask me. It is hands down the softest, most cuddly baby blanket ever! If you haven’t discovered Red Heart’s Buttercup Yarn yet, it’s time I introduced you. Red Heart describes it as “pom- poms of color blended with a fleecy yarn.” There are 16 colors to choose from. You can find out more information at Red Heart’s website.
I actually stumbled across this pattern by accident. A friend was learning to crochet but didn’t like it, so she gave me the yarn she didn’t want. There were 8 balls of this yarn in Teddy Bear, this pattern was on the label, and a friend was expecting a boy. Bingo! I gave the pattern a try, and immediately fell in love with the result. I have made many of these, and they are always appreciated!
