Need a quick & easy baby blanket that will feel and look amazing? Check out my Soft & Squishy baby blanket! One of my daughters compared it to foam. When folded, if you squish it it will bounce right back to the height it was. Add a soft yarn to the mix and any baby is sure to love this soft & squishy blanket!
If you’d like a downloadable version of this pattern, you can purchase it in my Ravelry shop for a minimal fee ($1.00), which helps cover the cost of the selling fees, etc.
