Sunny Dreams Crochet Baby Blanket

Hi friends,

A while back, a sweet friend gifted me with a big box of yarn. It included several skeins of Bernat Softee Baby Yarn in Lemon. Every time I looked at it, it made me think of warm, sunny days. I knew it would make a snuggly, sunny blanket for a precious little one. You’ll find my new crochet pattern below.

These are great crochet hooks if you are looking for some new ones. ๐Ÿ™‚ This is the Bernat Softee Baby yarn I used.

Of course, you can make this sweet blanket in any color. I think it would be beautiful in white, pink, green, or blue – or even in white with a pink, blue, yellow, or green border.

I hope you enjoy this pattern! I would love to see your finished blankets!

Happy Stitching!

Anita
