My friends meet your next favorite thing: the Brainless Wonder Baby Afghan. I love a brainless wonder. The kind of project you can laze around in your living room, mindlessly crocheting for hours while you drink your favorite beverage and binge watch Netflix. And if you want to take it on vacation or some such other crocheting adventure, it's game to go without too much fuss. The Red Heart Ombre yarn is gorgeous, and with a fast an easy stitch like the sedge stitch, what's more to love?"
The first of the warm welcome baby blanket ideas is a nice, cuddly and decently warm blankie with sparkles. Moreover, it also has some truly wonderful texture patterning, perfect for little fingers to play with.
