Difficulty: Easy

Materials: Crochet Thread, appropriate sized crochet hook (1.9 - 2.25), receiving blanket



Step 2: Pattern Instructions

(Poke the crochet hook through the edge of the fabric to begin Rnd 1. I've also seen patterns where the blanket is prepped by creating the holes first with a sharp tool, before beginning the crochet pattern, to make it easier to insert the crochet hook. You may find our tutorial for Baby Blanket Shell Edging helpful as a reference for how to accomplish the first round.)
