Amazing Grace Baby Blanket


The Amazing Grace Baby Blanket is the 8th pattern in the Amazing Grace Free Crochet Pattern Series!   All of the patterns in the Amazing Grace Series have the same signature stitch pattern and are dedicated to Cancer Awareness.  This adorable baby blanket was designed for children and babies who are suffering or recovering from any illness or tragedy. Along with all the other Amazing Grace Free Patterns, I encourage you to make these for yourself and to pay it forward by donating a finished item to someone who is suffering or recovering from illness…  It also makes great gifts and is fun and easy to make!!
