Hi there! It’s Jamey here with my newest baby blanket crochet pattern. This time I’m using the very pretty primrose stitch.
This pattern uses simple basic crochet stitches and gives you a lovely repeating subtle texture. This striping pattern is easy to customize with any color you’d like – I went with this fun Neopolitan color scheme this time and love it!
Make up this easy to crochet blanket for your next baby or as a special gift for a friend’s little bundle of joy. You really can’t go wrong, and it always helps to have extra blankets around.
