So Soft One Skein Security Blanket
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!
