Benefits of Crocheting
Did you know that crafting, especially working on something repetitive like a crochet afghan with a repeating stitch pattern, can actually be good for your health? The repetition of crocheting, such as when working on this crochet baby blanket, actually releases serotonin, a natural anti-depressant, that leaves the crocheter feeling much happier, calmer and much less stressed after their work than before they started. Crafting in such a way has also been shown to reduce the odds of developing mild cognitive impairment, so it helps keep your mind sharp and limber. 

Knowing how to crochet can also help reduce anxiety by keeping your hands and mind occupied on the one tasks. This prevents you from fidgeting or having your mind wander. It also calms any irritation or nervousness and can also help combat insomnia. In terms of physical effects, it can help those with arthritis and crocheting keeps your fingers and joints limber, and it can help you keep your brain sharp. 

Crocheting can also help you build your self-esteem by having you take pride in your craft, and it's a fantastic way to help you build a community or close-knit peer group.

Have you experienced any of the health benefits of crocheting?

Here's the link to the pattern of this soo lovely baby blanket. http//www.mooglyblog.com/loopy-love-blanket/ and here's the link to the video tutorial http//www.mooglyblog.com/loopy-love-blanket-tutori == al/

I love that this pattern is written for so many sizes! I can't wait to make one for my double bed.

If you're looking for the perfect baby blanket to crochet, I would have to say that you've found it with this pattern. It's incredibly easy to follow and great for a confident beginner. It would make for a beautiful keepsake for the lucky baby who receives it. It would look great in any colour, whether it's soft pastels or bright rainbow shades.

After reading the pattern and seeing the video, I think this will be a easy pattern to do. I'm looking forward to finding the right colors to do it in. I'm thinking in pink and blue and maybe a light purple that way it could be for a boy or girl. Thank you so much for the free pattern and video..

Seems to be working out well. I'm only using 2 colors because I couldn't find a 3rd to match my variegated yarn. So far so good. Easy to understand.

I would consider myself an experienced crocheter,however this pattern has me stumped. I have started and ripped out at least three times now. The problem I am having is at the end of row 2 and row 3. They do not match up, one ending has gaping holes, the other is fairly finished. Has anyone else had this problem? Or perhaps there it's an error in the pattern. Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks

Yes, confusing to me too. She also has a video tutorial on how too... Check out her blog for it.

i believe the link to this is broken, or the link is no longer a webpage. it refuses to open...

Hi rippedjeanslife7 6387331, We just checked the link and it opened fine on our end. Please try again in a different browser and let us know if you continue having difficulty accessing the pattern. Thanks! -editors of AllFreeCrochet
