The minute I saw this Baby Blanket yarn, I fell in love with it. It is so soft and plush. I loved how the colors blended together, the pink, yellow, white and just a little bit of blue. Makes me think of springtime! I love spring and summer. This blanket is perfect for a spring baby. Perfect for a beginner crocheter as it follows the same pattern all the way through.
I used only 4 skeins that were 72 yards each and my blanket came out to 27″ x 27″ which I think is perfect for a newborn receiving blanket or for a toddler as a wag-along-blanket ( I guess that is what you would call it, a blanket that they wag with them where ever they go, sounds good to me) You could easily add more skeins to make it bigger. It really is just up to you.
