Laurel Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern by Kristin Omdahl
This is an easy to memorize stitch pattern that is crocheted from corner to corner, working an increase section until desired width is achieved, then working a decrease section to the opposite corner. A simple double crochet border frames this delicate floral blanket beautifully.
