Quinlan Baby Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

Make this beginner baby blanket for your next baby shower gift

The Quinlan Baby Blanket crochet pattern uses beginner stitches and has a one row repeat, so it works up fast!

The Quinlan Baby Blanket was inspired by a recent trip to Arizona where the distant mountains all seemed a beautiful blue for miles on end. I decided to name it after the Quinlan Mountains with their stunning blue, endless veiws.
