Crochet Baby Blanket
Another favourite yarn by new mothers is Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn. Very thick to the touch and projects whip up so quickly. It’s called Candy-ghan due to the colours reminding Mikey of Candy Floss. There are a lot of different colours to choose within this yarn line. Mikey has whipped up a video tutorial for this project as well. When completed, this afghan will be about 32″ square.
Square Afghan will measure approximately 32″ square using 2 balls of 300 G or 10.5 OZ yarn balls. Use more balls if desired to be bigger.
This is a super fast project and a 32″ square afghan will take about 3 hours to complete. It’s approximately 1.5 hours per ball.
