The Malia Baby Blanket is a classic crocheted blanket that has a very richly textured surface. It’s dense, crocheted structure allows it to drape nicely and conform to the shape of the covered object… or person ;D The surface texture will be great for a baby to explore with their hands, and the density will keep baby nice and warm, in a cot or bassinet. Also, the Malia blanket will be great to place your baby on to keep them warm on a cool floor or on the grass outside. All in all, this is a very versatile project that results in an attractive and functional item. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
