Using fun colors like sunshine, light country peach, orchid and other soft colors will make you feel like you're on a cloud while working up the Beginner Daydream Baby Blanket. This crochet blanket pattern is great for those just learning how to crochet. The continuous rounds give it that never ending square effect which can be mesmerizing to the eye. Any baby who receives this wonderful blanket will want to stare at it for hours because of the colors and optical illusion. You might also be transfixed as you're crocheting this baby blanket and you won't want to stop working it up. 

If you enjoyed working this crochet baby blanket, try the Continuous Crochet Baby Blanket pattern for a similarly worked blanket.

Hi jindaroo, I think this is in American English because it uses the abbreviation dc (double crochet) which is treble in the UK. Here is a link to the abbreviations. I would love to make this pattern. It seems so easy to make. Good thing we have the pattern right here on the same page. Thanks.

Hello just wondering if this beautiful pattern is in English or American stitches please

This is my version of the 'Daydream Baby Blanket' using just some of my stash, I used the blue because a baby boy is expected. The mother -to-be was over the moon.
