bernat® baby blanket™ stripes radiant crochet baby blanket

This throw is like a little slice of sunshine! We love its ripple-y shape and cheerful colors. But, we might love the pre-striped yarn (so no switching off between rows) and the fact that it takes only about five hours from beginning to end, even more. We think you should give it a try!
Step 1
MEASUREMENTS: Approx 44" [112 cm] diameter.

GAUGE: 6 sc and 7 rows = 4" [10 cm]; save time and check your gauge.
