Coming soon, I will share my round up of my favorite free crochet afghan patterns, but first I wanted to share my completed Baby Blanket.
I followed a beautiful free pattern from Modern Grace Design. The pattern as written creates a stroller/crib sized baby blanket, however the pattern is easily adaptable to create a larger blanket.
I especially adore the edging, which alternates between the primary color and the contrast color and finishes with ruffles.
My blanket turned out a bit lopsided, I likely added a few extra stitches here and there, but I don't think the baby will mind. :)
Baby blankets are a great way to tell someone you haven't met yet how much you love them and can't wait to meet them.
Big thanks to Alison of Modern Grace Design for sharing this free pattern with us. I have already started my second blanket with this pattern for my niece who will be joining the universe in March.
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to visit Thread by Thread Zen again soon!
