Free Crochet Pattern: Wylie Baby Blanket





I have been wanting to make a granny and v-stitch blanket for a while so...here it is!  This is baby blanket that I came up with for a friend who is due to have a baby girl this summer.  It was super easy to make and really fun because of how colorful it is...though that does leave a lot a ends to weave in!  It could be made in any number of colors or even solid.  

My goal here was to make a square blanket that it bigger than my previous baby blankets.  I wanted something that the baby could grow into but could still be used in the stroller now.  My finished size is 38.5" by 38.5".  Let's get to the pattern :)
