Baby Bumps Blanket Crochet Pattern
This beautiful little crochet baby blanket is the perfect gift for a baby shower or a baby’s first Christmas.
Whatever event you make this for, a baby will love the fun texture of the baby bumps crochet blanket. It’s perfect for little hands.
It gets most of this texture from a series of double crochets but the color really sets the stitchwork off. The easy crochet baby blanket pattern is working in a series of 5 colors ranging from pink to blue to creams and greys. If you’re just learning how to crochet a baby blanket, this may be a great pattern for you.
All the shades are a 100% wool yarn called Cascade 128 Superwash. It’s machine washable and crochets up quickly. It’s also incredibly soft which is perfect for sensitive baby skin. The chunky crochet blanket is perfect if you’re looking to make a quick and beautiful gift.
I think this would make a thoughtful gift for a new mother. Or bring it with you to the hospital the day the new baby arrives! I still remember my first baby blanket. They’re special keepsakes and this would be such a treasure to gift to someone in your life too.
