Many children enjoy having security blankets to keep close to them at all times. This So Soft One Skein Security Blanket is probably the most comfortable and easy crochet baby blanket you could make for your little one. Because it only uses one skein of lightweight yarn, it's quick to work up. It's a thoughtful gift to give to newborns and you know they'll treasure it, even when they get old enough to leave it home. Even adults will wish they had a security blanket like this to carry around!

Blanket is worked back and forth in rows
then edging is worked around the entire

I just love crocheting baby afghans. The yarns are so soft and cuddly and they always look so beautiful when completed. They are also quite small so are relatively quick to make which is always nice to do in between larger, more complicated projects. This one is such a lovely pattern and looks really cozy and warm for our South African upcoming winter.
