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!
Hook Size: 5.00mm
1.5 skeins each of pink, green and cream
Gauge: 1 pattern repeat = 3"
