This is a fun and easy baby blanket tutorial using 2 big balls of Bernat Baby Yarn in a bulky, chenille type yarn making it super soft and spongy but still light weight. A great texture for babies and this blanket is beginner friendly with all the steps shown for this simple crocheted blanket.
Make sure you get the big ball of yarn, its 300g, 10.5 oz, 258 yards, 234 m
If you want to make it larger… make the foundation chain as long as you like, just make sure it is a multiple of 6 for example 60, 66, 72 etc.
Enjoy the Video!
