The Katie Baby Blanket is a beautiful and dainty blanket project that will make a lovely gift for a new baby!
I used Paintbox Yarns Simply DK yarn in the colorway Ballet Pink to create the baby blanket. This yarn is one of my favorite DK (#3) weight yarns.
It is 100% acrylic and so soft! It comes in a large variety of colors. It can also be machine washed and dried.
The crochet pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. This baby blanket pattern uses basic stitch combos to create this light lacy look to it!
