This 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.
