puff stitch baby blanket

A couple of weeks ago my mom gave me this yarn.  I have been playing around with the puff stitch, and it makes a nice texture for a baby blanket.  This Bernat Baby Blanket tiny yarn is really soft.

I like making blankets that will work for many years for a child, so this puff stitch baby blanket is 36″ x 44″.  Double it over to wrap around a baby, use it to cover a stroller, or spread it out on the ground for baby to roll around on.  As they get older it’s still a great size for them to cuddle up with.
