Every new mom is sure to love this crocheted baby blanket pattern. Mom's Favorite Baby Blanket is just the right size for traveling. This particular crochet pattern is designed to fit perfectly over your baby's car seat. Babies will especially love the ridged texture of this ripple blanket that is created by working in the back loops of each row. The trendy chevron design can be made in any color combination you want, which makes this homemade baby blanket a great gift for both baby boys and girls.
Note: I recommend that you change colors only at the end of even rows so that every new color begins on an odd row. On my blanket, each stripe is 6 rows tall, for a total of 8 stripes.]
