Just looking at this Dewdrops Baby Blanket you would think it would be so hard to make. After reading the written pattern here on this page, it sounds so easy to make. I love the colors used and will work for a boy or girl. I have added this one to my must make list. It will be a nice one to have as a throw as well. Thank you for sharing this free crochet baby blanket.

Another addition to my baby blanket pattern collection. This one is just so awesome. This is definitely in my queue. It helps a lot that the pattern is just in front of the page. Thanks.

I have enjoyed this pattern! I have made it a number of times. It is also know as the shell stitch. It works up pretty fast.

I like this one better. It's an easy pattern that looks a little more difficult. This design just gives the color a little more pop.

I like this one better. I think it looks a lot easier for a beginner or even for someone like myself who wants something easier to do for a change and still get a good looking afghan for a baby. I'm not sure I care for the colors that the example was made with, but those could be changed for anyone whose tastes fun differently than those. I think this would be best. Even I have problems doing ripples and for a beginner the length of time it takes to crochet one, if it's not easy as well as fun, is going to put them off crocheting a baby afghan as much as anything else. This would be my choice, and in fact, I think I'll start on of this variety. I have enough yarn at home to have my own shop, so I'll start with this myself. Hope this answers your question.

This one looks more like a baby. Ripples just seem to heavy and old fashioned for a little person.

I'm always looking for an easy pattern with an unusual effect. This fits the bill! Love it.
Aug 14, 2012
this one is different and that is why it has my vote. The color combination is endless and it doesn't look "standard" easy but rather that some thought was put into it. I hope this one wins!!
