I just love the simplicity and plainness of this Easy and Elegant Baby blanket. It's the kind of design that you can do in all the colors you fancy. Also good to make in many different colors for business purposes - in case someone likes it and asks to buy one from you. Nice.

This Easy and Elegant Crochet Blanket is really nice looking. The written pattern is well done and easy to understand and follow. I love the lacy shells and the textures are great for babies or adults. I would love to make a larger version of this one for myself. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet blanket pattern.

I can't resist anything that uses "easy" and "elegant." Great blanket!

Sometimes simple is best and this elegant baby blanket is proof. I love the shell pattern and the soft blue color. This would definitely be a hit at your next baby shower!
