Baby Soft Striped Blanket - Free Crochet Pattern

***This post does contain some affiliate links***

I was strolling through Hobby Lobby the other day and came across the fluffiest yarn ever! I just knew from that moment I HAD to make a blanket using Lion Brands Baby Soft Boucle yarn. This yarn has a gorgeous “loop” like texture which gives so much body and squish to any project. I wanted to emphasize this as much as I could so I needed to pair it with a simple and solid color, naturally I reached for my yarn of choice Lion Brand’s Vanna’s Choice in Dark Heather Grey.

I hope you all love the texture of this blanket as much as I do! I may end up designing a throw in the future, i’m just that in love.
