Chevron Mountain Peaks Blanket

While we can often be tempted by tiny, frilly crocheted blankets when a friend or family member is expecting, sometimes the better part of valor is stitching something thick and durable that the baby can hang onto into the toddler years and beyond. This cushy blanket is great for small people to play on as well as sleep under. Once you have a few rows finished this pattern is really easy to memorize.
