I am in love with this Caron Cotton Cakes yarn. It is amazing for blankets and after the Hydrangea Baby Blanket, I couldn’t help but make another.
Crochet baby blankets are wonderful for working on while watching Netflix or riding in a car. I love that I can put one down and come back and pick it up easily, without worrying about shaping or row count (much).
I also love giving baby blankets as gifts. Most moms love a handmade baby gift and will cherish one you made yourself.
