So last week the lovely folks over at Happily Hooked Magazine asked me to do a guest post for them about a selection of crochet baby blanket patterns for them – of course I jumped at the chance and here’s what I came up with…..
There’s nothing I love more than making and giving a baby blanket to a brand new bundle of joy. I’m flying in the face of tradition and going out there with – do they all have to be white or cream? I think not! Here’s a collection of my favourite colourful baby blankets out there. Enjoy!
