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.
I’m an accomplished craft designer and author of hundreds of articles and reviews on the topic of crocheting and other crafts. In my everyday work, I search out and present novel approaches to classic patterns and techniques to encourage you to try something new.
I’m delighted that so many of you read my posts and that I can contribute to making our crochet society bigger and more popular.
I’m interested in crafts and interior design and love traveling and sitting next to a campfire. I live with my husband and three kids in the Rockies.
