I would like to share my Baby on the O’Go Blanket with you. I was really inspired with the new line of yarn by Red Heart to create a quick and easy crochet project.

This fun blanket has an easy to remember 5 round repeat. You could easily continue on to make a lovely full-sized afghan for home decor.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
