10 Adorable Baby Patterns

1.  Wrap Me In Sunshine Blanket Free Pattern

“This pattern works beautifully with the Lion Brand Cupcake yarn. The Cupcake yarn is similar to the Lion Brand Mandala yarn line — self-striping gradient, same weight acrylic and yardage. Essentially Mandala, Mandala Baby, Mandala Sparkle (smaller yardage in the Sparkle) and Cupcake are interchangeable in patterns.” ~ Nana's Crafty Home

Inspiration is everywhere. I love to create crochet inspired by nature, retro, rainbows, classic crochet, modern, boho, pop culture, and more...my style is eclectic. Something for everyone.

Every pattern expresses a style, an emotion, and a feeling of comfort, joy, and most of all I have fun creating something to leave the world a little more beautiful than it was before.
