Why AllFreeCrochet Loves this Afghan
For us at AllFreeCrochet, crochet baby blankets are always at the top of our to-make list. You can make them with a simple and repetitive pattern, as in this crochet baby blanket, for a calming effect, or you can amp up the difficulty a bit and try out some new stitch designs every few rows or so. The key to this project is its simplicity - it's toned down and subtle without being at all boring. The pattern uses the same stitch technique throughout, with a skipped stitch in between each one, so it's very easy to remember. This way, you don't have to keep referring to a pattern as you work your way through the project - a small perk that, we think, saves a lot of time in the long run. Aside from the simple stitch pattern, though, we really just love the colors of this crochet baby blanket. The cool blue and the soft tan just reminds us of a calming shoreline - and who doesn't love a little bit of relaxation?
