Share this post with friends

Crochet baby blankets does not have to be thick and heavy, although woolen thick ones are great for long winter evenings on the couch. In summer, we need something delicate and much lighter. Not only do we tend to choose thinner yarns, but also designs that are more airy, which feature openwork.

These mesh blankets are designed as baby blankets, which means that they are small, but you can easily make them bigger if you want to make a bedspread for example. Take a look at these ideas and choose the one that works for you best! They work up fast and would be lovely gifts for friends and family. Search for links to free patterns under the pictures below.
