Flutterby Baby Blanket ~
Free Crochet Pattern
On one of my trips to visit our family I stopped by the LYS in Texarkana, Texas and saw this Flutterby yarn. When I felt it, I knew it would make a great baby blanket. It’s soft as feathers or clouds fluttering by. No boy blankets needed at the time but I bought it anyway. Then an order came in and was able to pull this yummy yarn from my stash! Flutterby is a chunky, super soft polyester yarn and works up very quickly. It makes for a great baby shower gift or for those cute little ones in the NICU. Enjoy!
