One of the best gifts I received at my baby shower was a hand woven cotton blanket from a family friend. At the time, I didn’t knit or crochet and was absolutely shocked that someone could do that! It’s a dear blanket to me.
I like to use natural fibers whenever I can, although sometimes they can be tricky when it comes to a budget. And sometimes, there are reasons to use acrylics and other fibers, too. However, today I wanted to share a pattern with cool cotton.
You can make it as a baby blanket, or you can easily adjust the size to make it as big or small as you like. I wrote the pattern in lapghan size, but again, you’ll see some basic instructions below on how to adjust the pattern to customize your size.
I love the chic, homey vibe of this blanket, and I think it would be great in any farmhouse, cottage, or vintage-style rooms. It would also make a lovely baby shower gift!
You may remember my Go-To Blanket made of heavyweight yarn – it’s fun if you like really fast projects! This blanket uses the same stitch, the blanket stitch, and is just a great pattern on hand.
If you check the pattern below, you’ll see that it’s just one row that repeats all the time. This is the perfect kind of mindless crochet for summertime! hehe
So, let’s jump into this pattern, shall we?
Remember, you can get the ad-free version on Etsy, or check out the free version below. 🙂
