The Milly Baby Blanket, newborn baby blanket, is a wonderful Tunisian crochet blanket perfect for a new bundle of joy.  The blanket is designed for newborn size and perfect for use in Moses baskets and strollers. It would make a thoughtful baby shower gift too!

 The blanket is worked in rows using intarsia colourwork technique to change colours for individual segments.

The pattern can be easily adjusted to larger/ smaller size and different colours, opening doors to endless possibility and creativity. The super bulky yarn makes it one of those projects that grow extremely quickly, so you can have a new blanket in an evening! This project is a great option if you would like to try your hand on super bulky yarn.
