White Waterlily Baby Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern
The White Waterlily Baby Blanket is the ultimate pattern for anyone who loves flowers, especially waterlilies. The design is slightly intricate, but the finished project is gorgeous and rewarding.
You can simply add more waterlily granny squares and opt for a larger blanket since the pattern is adjustable. Also, you can make the squares larger if you want the flowers further apart from one another.
I designed this blanket using Aran yarn. Feel free to change the yarn weight and color palette according to your personal preference.
