From the moment we are born, the world starts making impressions on us. Some are lasting, some decidedly less so, but everything we experience during that first year can drastically shape us, whether we remember it or not. That's why it's so important to be cognizant of what we put near our babies. This Colorful Baby Blanket? Definitely on the yes list. This is a bright, happy, fun blanket that will encourage the same traits in your child — or, at least, it will look pretty in all the pictures!

Wow what a interesting pattern this is for the Colorful Baby Blanket. I wish there was a video for doing the "bubble stitch". After reading this written pattern, It isn't clear to me on how to do it? I'm going to try it and just see what comes of this one. It sounds very interesting for sure. The textures sounds great for little fingers and toes. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet pattern.
