Emily's Blanket (FREE Crochet Pattern)

Did you have a beloved blanket when you were little? All 3 of my younger siblings carried a crocheted baby blanket with them everywhere they went. Recently, my youngest sister lost her blankie, and I was asked to make a replacement. Without the blanket to pull inspiration from, I had to use my imagination and come up with something new. That's how Emily's Blanket came to be. Here's my pattern for this cute, simple baby blanket that looks great in any color.
