Easy Cluster Stitch Baby Blanket
"Work up a gorgeous baby blanket with this free crochet pattern! This blanket is a nice and relaxing project for you as there's only 1-row to repeat throughout the pattern. For the blanket, you'll work up the piqué stitch, which is made up from the special cluster stitch – a combination of a double and half double crochet all worked into the same stitch. This stitch has the most wonderful texture and it’s not difficult to do… just see how easy it is in the photo tutorial included as part of the pattern!"
