Coral Reef Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Coral Reef Baby Blanket crochet pattern is a fun reminder of picking up shells on the beach (maybe pre-baby?).

Whether you make it in one color, two colors, or even three, you’ll love the results. (One of my testers even used ombre yarn and it came out amazing!

The Coral Reef baby blanket is part of the Beach Getaway Collection. It was created as a collection of patterns that you can bring with you on your beach getaway, or use them to remind you of the warm days to come. Either way, hopefully they will bring you to a relaxing place.

Keep an eye open for the complete Beach Getaway Collection . . . . more releasing soon!

Beach Getaway = a place where you can escape for relaxation or vacation

My intent for the Beach Getaway Collection was to have a set of patterns that would remind you of your favorite vacation (or vacation home). The collection will be mostly blankets because they’re great for cuddling up on cool summer nights with someone you love.

If you’d like to see all the patterns from the Beach Getaway Collection you can find them at the bottom of this post.
