Quick + Easy Baby Blanket

Well time is short and you need a crochet baby blanket, give this one a try.  The Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn makes this project even easier as you don’t have to stop and change colors, yet it produces a fabulous blanket.  Of course, if you prefer to choose your own colors, there are many shades of regular Bernat Blanket yarn that will work just at well.

I used just 2 balls and 3 hours one evening to crochet this quick and easy blanket.  Its finished size is 29″ x 34″, just enough to cover a baby or use as a comfy mat for baby to lay on.  It’s so plush and soft, just perfect for a baby’s soft skin.
