Bunny Hugs Hooded Baby Blanket | Posh Pooch Designs

Bunny Hugs Hooded Baby Blanket 
Crochet Pattern
 By Sara Sach of Posh Pooch Designs
I am very excited to release this Crochet Pattern and Video.
Red Heart Yarn sent me this amazing baby yarn, 
and it's been tested for harmful substances,
 so its safe for babies and children.
It's called Bunches Of Hugs.  It's a Worsted weight (4) yarn.
 It's very soft, and durable at the same time.
It has many wonderful colors to choose from.
Both solids and Variegated.




Also, My neighbor is having a baby.  It's a Win, Win.
 I got to design this cute baby blanket and give it to my neighbor!




Here is a close up of the Stitch Pattern.
 Can you see why I called it "Bunny Hugs"?
Although this Stitch pattern looks complicated, It is not.

The Blanket is a little larger then the average baby blanket, 
so they will be able to use it for well into their toddler years.
Works great for Boys and Girls, as well as neutral colors.
