Beginner Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Crochet Baby BlanketThis Beginner Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern is very basic and ideal to place on the floor for your baby to roll around on or use as a pram cover.

Choose any color you like and you can add ribbon bows to the corners to snazz it up a bit. This blanket crochets up fairly quickly as it is a repetitive pattern and therefore ideal for beginners to start off with.
