FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Cuddle Up Baby Blanket

FREE Written Crochet Pattern: Cuddle Up Baby Blanket

When a good friend is having a baby girl, one must use their skills and create a luxurious way to welcome her into the world. Join me as I share the free crochet pattern and video tutorial for The Cuddle Up Baby Blanket below. I used Vel-Luxe yarn by Lion Brand Yarn and I LOVE it. I want one for myself, it is so soft!


My dad will continue to be the videographer, editor, and photographer for our videos when I move away.
Support YARNutopia today so we can continue to bring you clear, quality crochet tutorials even after I move into my new home!
There will be an added expense of more travel and hopefully this won’t deter our ability to provide consistent videos on a weekly basis.
