Soft & Squishy Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

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!
