It is So Easy to crochet this baby blanket as it is an easy-to-remember crochet stitch pattern repeat
Not only making it an impressive baby blanket go-to pattern but also Perfect for  Beginners

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.

What you will need to crochet this baby blanket 

4.500mm hook and a 5.00 mm hook for the starting chain to ensure it is Loosley crocheted. 

I used Double Knit /light worsted in White, (11 balls of 100grms)

the instructions on how to make the blanket any size you wish.
