If you're stuck in a crochet rut, consider working on this Shooting Star Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern. This project shows that not all free crochet baby blanket patterns need to look the same or have the same features. What really sets this pattern apart from the pack is its shape. The circular design is unique and unexpected, but the overall look is totally traditional. Best of all, you only need one skein of each yarn color to complete this project, so there's no need to worry about breaking the bank. Make a star baby blanket your loved ones will treasure for years to come.
