FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Aspen Baby Blanket

FREE Crochet Video Tutorial: Aspen Baby Blanket

There many different reasons to be inspired. The Aspen Baby Blanket was inspired by friends celebrating the birth of their baby. The Aspen tree was the foundation for this piece. Created using series of front and back post stitches, it creates a repeat texture leaf pattern.  The striking three dimensional profile of this project took my breath away. When you look at this overall piece you would never guess that it is easier than you think! I used Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling yarn by Lion Brand Yarn and it was THE most luxurious fiber giving this blanket the absolute softest feel. Follow my video tutorial or written pattern and get your started today!
