Pick up your hook and crochet the Picadilly Baby Blanket for the next baby shower on your calendar. Spunky purple and blue crochet motif patterns are joined together to make the interlocking flower shapes that make this blanket truly unique. The bobble stitch used in this tutorial is a way to make this crochet baby blanket extra puffy so that it feels super soft against baby's cheek. Best of all, you don't have to be a crochet master to make this blanket. In fact, it's easy.

Notes

2. Country is a strong 6-ply yarn: To reduce bulk and to make knots more secure, before tying knots separate the tail into two 3-ply section by twisting yarn in the opposite direction from which it was spun, pull one 3-ply section through a nearby 6-ply stitch and tie the two 3-ply section together tightly. Weave this tail through four consecutive back loops of the round just completed. After the next round is worked, encasing the yarn tails, trim off any excess.
