You could also make this into an adorable crochet baby blanket simply by reducing the number of rows you crochet in each section of the blanket. It’ll be the same width but be more in line with a typical baby blanket size in terms of length.
The Ombre blanket is created using the Plymouth Encore Worsted Yarn which is an acrylic/wool blend adding softness without sacrificing durability. It’s luxurious and cozy and comes in vibrant shades that are used in this crochet pattern.
