Another way to wrap your baby in a bouquet of flowers! This could be your craft of love to be cherished forever!
The blanket is made by using “connect as you go” method, so you don’t have to fear tedious sewing at the end.
I have included tips for weaving in ends while you crochet, so even though each flower has 3 colors of yarn to work with, you will be left with only one yarn end to weave in. Yay!
The pattern includes 9 pages of instructions, with bright and colorful step-by-step photos to guide even an adventurous beginner through the process.
There are 2 pages of instructions put together for easy printing.
