Free Crochet Blanket Pattern - Ruby Baby Blanket


I am so excited to be releasing this brand new pattern for you today, this is a beautiful crochet ripple blanket with bobbles which is perfect for your little one or as a gift and it is so stunning!

For this crochet pattern i used Paintbox Yarns Cotton DK* exclusively from LoveCrochet, i find cotton yarn is perfect for baby blankets as it's a bit more hard wearing but still suitable for babies and children as it's soft to touch. 

Please note that this pattern is written using US crochet terms.

Enjoy Lovelies! x
