These easy crochet blocks work up to be a beautiful and cozy afghan for a new baby boy.  This white and blue baby blanket crochet pattern from Lily Sugar n' Cream is an easy project for crocheters of all skill levels, and you can easily change the colors to suit your tastes.  Expecting a little girl?  Use pink yarn rather than blue.  This easy crochet blanket makes a great gift for new babies and expecting parents.
