Hello Friends! Brianna again from Life and Yarn ! How are you? I hope you all have been well! As the warmer days of spring and summer approach I feel like I always notice a little baby boom! So if you're like me and always seem to end up with babies happening in clusters, then this Textured Baby Blanket is for you! This project will work up quickly by using front post double crochet through the whole blanket and you will end up with a beautifully textured piece! It is just perfect for baby's busy fingers!
