This Lil' Bandit Crochet Baby Blanket is another exciting pattern for babies. Both baby girl and baby boy will like this themed blanket. Also perfect as present for baby shower or christening.

I love this pattern, it is so cute! The pattern itself looks really simple to create and should go pretty fast. I know these colors are the colors for the raccoon but I love the color combination anyway. I can just see a toddler running up and down the hall with the ears bobbing all around.

This it such a cute baby blanket, I love the design of the hood. Super cozy!
