Super Bulky Baby Blanket: New Pattern!

Super Bulky Baby Blanket

The latest pattern using my color collection collaboration with the folks at Valley Yarns, is now available on Ravelry. The Super Bulky Baby Blanket is a squooshy, cheery square of crochet goodness. It’s worked in the round at first, from a small granny square in one corner out, then reverts to granny stripes building upon two side angles. The edging is then added around the entire piece. This project is crocheted using a large-sized crochet hook and (as the name suggests) super bulky yarn so with a little effort, can be whipped up in a couple of days. It’s a great gift for the new baby, born to mum’s with a retro-modern esthetic.  Here’s what you’ll need to make the Super Bulky Baby Blanket:
