There are so many cute baby accessories out there these days! Every baby shower has tons of cool new tools and cute patterns. However, these trends come and go and there is nothing like a homemade blanket to share with a new baby or new family. This crochet baby blanket pattern is just the right mix of modern and traditional. This free pattern combines the cool modern grey and white colors with two textures to keep baby warm and busy!
The grey in this pattern is all worked in the misaligned cobble stitch, which Rose shows in our building block post. This stitch is perfect for a baby blanket and their little fingers will love the texture of the bumps in and then slide into the white larger row of cables. You could work this pattern in any colors, but I found the grey and white combination to be very modern and classy at the same time.
