Tributary Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern
The Tributary blanket, while not a ruffle blanket per se (the white zigzag is part of the main surface), it is a take on the same idea. It uses soft, luxurious yarns to make a baby blanket that’s soft and pleasant to the touch with lovely ridges for little fingers to explore. The visual appeal is made so much better by the use of gradient-colored yarn. This is a lovely and easy project to give your baby’s room or bassinet a real shine.
