Make one for a new baby, as a lap blanket or to give to a friend that needs a boost.

I have designed it to be easy to follow, so it is beginner friendly and I give you the colour recipe and amounts of yarn you will need, some of my testers managed to use up their scraps as it doesn’t take up too much of each colour.

There is a photo tutorial included to help you make the bobble pom poms which are crocheted as you make the blanket and therefore won’t shed or fall off.
