Shadows Baby Car Blanket
Crocheted With Love

Shadows baby car blanket



I named the Shadows Baby Car Blanket after the effect the stitches make as you go. It's crocheted in rows, but the way the stitches are arranged it looks like very subtle vertical lines instead.

It's an easy crochet car seat blanket. You'll do the stitch pattern automatically after a while and be done in no time. Simple but fun and easy enough for a beginner crocheter.

Here's the Shadows Baby Car Blanket pattern:
