Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!
