The Dusty Rose Baby Set includes a free baby blanket pattern! When I first started my business baby sets and baby prop items were the most popular request I received. I have to admit I absolutely loved making cute baby items. They’re very quick and satisfying to make. Being a mom of 4 you can image I’m a little obsessed with babies and cute tiny baby clothes! I didn’t start crocheting until my youngest was 18 mths so I never had the privilege of making my own babies these adorable sets. I started browsing through all my old images and couldn’t help but start scheduling some #throwbackthursday posts. I posted The criss cross baby set I frequently made with interchangeable flowers. This was before I was writing my patterns for sale. (original photo below)
I received so many comments and love for this set I just had to get on writing it up! It just so happens my sister-in-law is due in August with a baby girl so I jumped on the opportunity to make her something I would have loved for my 3 girls. I like to go all out so making just a hat and bootie set wasn’t enough I needed to make a matching blanket too! I picked a classic wave chevron stitch and soft soothing colours.
I’ve made the Dusty Rose Baby Blanket available for FREE on my YouTube Channel. The video includes how to make these tassels but I’ve also put up the tassel video separately for easy reference. Lets jump right into how to make this cozy baby blanket.
