I’m Marie from Underground Crafter. I am not sure what it is about babies that makes everyone want to crochet, but I know that it’s true for me! This stroller blanket is made with hexagon motifs, so it was portable while I was working on it. Once I had all of the motifs finished, I joined them together and added a border. The hexagon motif is beginner-friendly, but the honeycomb shape will make your blanket stand out. Make this for your next baby shower or for your own little one.
