This beautiful baby blanket was styled to mimic a rag quilt. If you’re not familiar with rag quilts, you should look them up. They really are amazing and also a basic and easier version of a detailed quilt. Each solid granny square has holes in the shape of an “X” the same way that the stitching would be on a traditional rag quilt square. The light ruffling around each square is sweet without being geared too much toward a girl’s blanket.

This pattern is easy and contains many pictures. It uses chains, single crochets, half double crochets and double crochets.

Whether you need a gift for a baby shower, your expecting neighbor, if you’re the one getting ready for a new arrival or if you donate to your local hospital’s NICU, this blanket is a perfect choice. It’s timeless and will instantly become a family heirloom!
