Sweet Baby Vintage – Baby Blanket Pattern

Oh, baby!

Sweet Baby Vintage, that is.

If there is one thing I’ve learned when it comes to crochet and knit, it’s that MANY makers love a good baby blanket pattern.  They are fun to make and even more fun to give away to family, friends or donate.  I have crocheted more baby blankets than any other item, so it made sense to have my first published crochet pattern be one.

I am excited to share it with YOU!  Finally.  I’m a bit embarrassed to tell you this has been complete for quite some time and I’ve been too afraid to share it.  Anyone else afraid to take a leap because you don’t know what others will think or say?

Do it anyway.

Here’s my leap…
