This crochet baby blanket uses front post and back post double crochets to mimic the handstitched lines in the traditional Trip Around the World pattern. The thick, warm blanket works equally well as a blanket or play mat for little ones of all ages. Washable yarn makes this one of our favorite easy to maintain and clean up handmade baby blanket crochet patterns.
