This blanket has tons of great texture – the lines in the “paper liner” are achieved with simple post stitches, and the “sprinkles” on the icing are treble crochets sandwiched between single crochets – simple but super effective! Lots for baby to touch and love.
This pattern uses the beautiful star stitch in three colors throughout the blanket. To make this crochet pattern easier, the yarn is carried up the side. For those that do not enjoy the job or weaving in the yarn ends, carrying the yarn up the side is the ticket. The fancy crochet border is achieved with five rounds of crochet stitches. The fourth round creates the rounded shell on the edges and corners, which is perfect if you want to stop after the fourth round. However, if you like the look of a pointed shell, then continue and add the fifth round. The point is made using the picot stitch.
Even if you know how to crochet a blanket, this one might be new for you. It uses the block stitch, also known as the box stitch.

Finished blanket measures 37 X 48 inches. Baby yarn makes this beauty soft, yet warm for baby to enjoy.
