The “Baby ZigZag Baby Blanket”!!!Blankets and Afghans . Patterns - Blankets and Afghans
Today I am offering a free, beautiful baby blanket pattern that is perfect for the preemie baby. It is called The “Baby ZigZag Baby Blanket”! It is a perfect project for the advanced beginner crocheter and turns out so soft and cuddly. It will be a perfect baby gift for that tiny new little one It will keep that preemie swaddled beautifully!
Preemie Crochet Challenge
This pattern is offered as part of the 2021 “Preemie Crochet Challenge” at the Sunflower Cottage Crochet Blog. The challenge runs every day during the entire month of August. A free preemie pattern is offered each day! The free ad-free .pdf of this pattern will be available at Ravelry on August 24th until the end of the day on August 31st.
Each download from Ravelry will be a pledge to make at least one of that item and donate it to a NICU or similar in November during Preemie Awareness Month.
To get the ad-free pattern, visit the Preemie Crochet Challenge at Sunflower Cottage Crochet to get the Coupon Code and all the other details about the Challenge.
I used a yarn new to me called “Ice Cream”. It is sold by Lion Brand and is very nice to work with. It is 100% acrylic so it is Machine Washable and Dryable. So easy to care for!!
The stitch I used for the body of the blanket is really quite easy to learn and to memorize, so you can easily work on your new project while watching tv or visiting with friends and family.
I’m offering the pattern here on my blog for free, but if you would like an ad-free PDF version after the Preemie Crochet Challenge, please check out my Etsy Shop.

Best Wishes and Stay Cozy!!
