Cheerful Granny Stripe Baby Blanket Pattern
This bright and fun granny stripe blanket crochet pattern uses Caron Simply Soft to make it perfect for babies!
This Cheerful Granny Stripe Baby Blanket Pattern is a free design from Caron and we think it combines just about everything we crocheters love.
It uses the classic and beloved granny stripe technique, it's a perfect baby blanket size, and uses pretty and vibrant colors that are so inviting!
Frankly, we want to make them for everyone we know, not just the babies. Though, with the Caron Simply Soft yarn, it's cuddle-level soft, which is ideal for babies.
The clean white base makes the charming granny stripes really pop. From left to right, you'll see a stripe of Pumpkin that's a reddish-orange, the rich Gold, the Soft Green that's a light turquoise, and finishing off with Chartreuse that's a mossy shade of green.
We love this granny stripe baby blanket crochet pattern and we hope you do, too. Did we mention it's easy? That's right! With all these amazing factors, how could you resist?
