I was requested by a customer to crochet a large baby blanket that could also be used as a crochet baby shawl. 

This crochet blanket is actually a pretty BIG baby blanket. However, it is an easy repetitive stitch and actually works up in no time.

After trying out several multiple stitches worked together, getting so far and then not liking the texture or look of the blanket.

Finally, I settled on the effect created by working sc/2dc in the same stitch it looked perfect in the white yarn and I loved how quickly a nice soft blanket started to develop. The texture reminds me of fluffy little white clouds. 

This crochet stitch combination is really soft and warm. 

This is a great pattern for working on whilst watching your favorite TV show as the repetition is so easy.
