Some Bunny Loves You Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern - Free Crochet Pattern

YAY! A new free pattern is here! I have never shared a baby blanket pattern for free before, and I thought now was a great time to share one!

This blanket works up quickly and has a lot of fabulous details to it! The amazing trim really pops with both the stitching and the ribbon! It is nice and heavy too, so it is perfect for keeping baby warm. I also love
there are few holes in the main part of the blanket for them to get their little fingers and toes in!


The applique is just too precious with the big bunny holding the little bunny's hand while they share a carrot! I love the sweet little tails too!

The SomeBunny Loves You crochet baby blanket makes a wonderful shower gift! It works up perfectly for either a boy or girl, so it can be great for gender neutral gifts as well!

I hope you enjoy this new FREE crochet pattern, and have fun making a sweet family heirloom for a little one in your life!

I can't wait to see your pictures of your new baby blanket!

Notes
  • For the Applique

  • When attaching the applique to the blanket use the front loops of the stitches on the blanket to secure. This will prevent the stitches from being seen on the back of the blanket.
