When you think of crochet baby blanket patterns, you probably think of designs that use pink, blue, or pastel colors. If you're looking for something a bit different, then the #NAPS Crochet Blanket just might be for you. The hip and trendy design incorporates the hashtag for a fun and whimsical look. You and the parents-to-be will love the bold look of this pattern. While this crochet baby blanket is perfect for a baby shower gift, you can probably think of a few older children and perhaps even a few adults who would love to use this blanket as a throw for an afternoon nap!

NOTES: When working from chart and joining new color, work to last 2 loops on hook of last st. Draw new color through 2 loops, then proceed in new color.

Carry color not in use across top of previous row and work sts around it to prevent stranding.

This is great! It doesnt just have to be for babies either. Make it a little bit larger and it makes a great blanket to grab when you want to take a quick nap on the couch too. This is one blanket I will have to make as a Christmas gift!

Many of my son's friends are expecting and it is time for me to make the blankets. I was looking for a blanket that is good for either gender and this is perfect. As the descriptions says it is hip and uses the hashtag which I find so many "younger" people are using in their dialogue on cell phones and on social media. I enjoy graphs that are not too complicated and this one looks fairly simple. Thank you for the pattern. I have the yarn and it will take me so time so do this.
