One Skein Mini Crochet Blanket Pattern
Did you know you could make a mini crochet throw with just one skein of Red Heart's With Love yarn? This one skein wonder is perfect for newborns, babies in strollers and to use as lapghans for elderly in wheelchairs. If you'd prefer a bigger blanket, it's so easy to do! Just make your starting chain as long as you want and follow the pattern on a larger scale. You will need more skeins of yarn, of course. To make this gorgeous blanket, you'll be using a combination of v-stitches and crochet puff stitches. Don't worry if you're a beginner because Kristi will show you how it's done.
