Crochet your own round baby blanket that looks just like Captain America's shield with the easy Captain America Inspired Crochet Blanket. This easy crochet blanket pattern uses red, white, and blue chunky yarn to work up a round, striped pattern with a white star motif in the center. Your little one's face will light up when you present him or her with this super cozy blanket - they can use this to cover themselves and stay warm or to play on, since the super thick yarn makes for a durable surface. 

NotesNOTES:
1. Body of Blanket is worked with RS facing throughout.
2. Star is worked separately and sewed to Blanket.
3. To change color, work last st of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and
draw through all loops to complete the st. Fasten off old color.
