Just about two weeks ago we welcomed our fourth nephew, Rumi, into the world.  I have to say… he is the sweetest, most handsome guy I’ve met in a long time!  Being his crazy crocheting aunt, I of course had to create a new baby blanket for the little man.  It took me a while to come up with this one.  I knew that I wanted to use more than one color, and I also had the goal of creating something that looked fresh and airy.   With a bit of trial and error, I came up with a quick building, simple pattern that I think you guys will love.

The yarn that I decided to work up this blanket with is  Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran.  I love this yarn because it’s soft, yet machine washable and durable (and also a great price!).  The blanket turned out super squishy and snuggly and I know that it will last through multiple washings.
