If there are two things you really want for your baby, it's fun and hugs. You want to give them as many hugs as you possibly can, and you want them to have as much fun as a tiny baby is capable of. That's why this Fun and Hugs Baby Blanket has to be on your list of must-haves for when the baby arrives. This adorable, soft blanket is perfect for your child to stretch out on or for you to wrap your baby up in. It's the snuggest feeling they will ever experience — aside from when you hold them in your arms, of course.

This is a fairly simple pattern. The yarn makes all the difference. I will work up quickly because of the size of the hook. I knit and crochet for charity so this will be perfect. The charity I work with will actually get the right yarn thanks to the contributions we get. Wonderful, huh?!! I will be able to put one more smile on someone's face. Thank you.

No print tab.
