A Crocheted Pink Baby Girl Blanket
I have so much boy energy in my life that I sometimes just need to whip up a nice pink or otherwise girlie blanket. I never really have anyone in mind when I make them and usually just give them away as new baby gifts. What? Me, finally get around to selling anything? Pffft! Maybe one day I’ll feel worthy enough.
One of my favorite free patterns for a crocheted baby blanket is the Lacy V-Stitch Ripple Afghan from Heather Tucker at Mama’s Stitchery. The pattern includes instructions for crochet a throw sizes extra small to extra large. It was a very interesting pattern to make because you have to drop a few stitches and then add them back, but it always ends up lining up. Here I used Lion Brand Yarn Pound of Love in Pastel Pink and Bubblegum for the trim.
If you haven’t discovered Mama’s Stitchery please do check it out! All Heather’s patterns are free and very well written. She provides a chart for each one and usually a video, too. She answers questions promptly, and there are a lot of amazing patterns for both crochet and knitting to choose from.
Here’s the video for the Lacy V-Stitch Ripple Afghan, which you can watch as you read the pattern.
Do you make any certain type of project just because? Let me know in the comments.
