Waterfall Baby Blanket

Woohoo!! Another free baby blanket pattern for my amazing followers!  With spring so close (just a few mores weeks!!), I decided to make something a little more light weight this time.

I named this blanket after the yarn that I used to make it:  Knit Picks Color Mist worsted weight yarn in Waterfall.  I wasn’t sure what to expect when I ordered the yarn online since I don’t usually make baby blankets out of cotton based yarns, but I liked that the description had it marked as machine washable (which is a must for anything baby related).  Needless to say, I’m so so happy with the end result.  The blanket is so light weight and incredibly soft.  It will make the perfect gift for my new nephew, who will arrive any week now!

I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page. You can also purchase the ad free instant download PDF file for easy printing and reading.
