About the Yarn for the Quick and Beautiful Crochet Baby Afghan
Lion Brand Hometown USA is a soft super bulky yarn that comes in generous skeins of fabulous colors. It’s machine washable and dryable which makes it a great yarn for a blanket.
Once you get the pattern repeat down, this is an easy and relaxing project. You should be able to make a full blanket in a weekend if you like. I loved the shade of blue I found in the Lion Brand Hometown USA. It reminded me of a deep blueberry color. So, I’m calling this the Berry Baby Afghan.
The Berry Baby Blanket pattern is a free crochet pattern for a baby blanket in U.S. crochet terminology. It is included for free on the blog below.
