Hello, Hannah here, with a fun and easy baby blanket that is full of texture! This blanket is a modified re-creation of my Velvet Berries Throw, but I modified the stitches a bit to make the lines and the berries a little more defined. I really loved this Persimmon color of Red Heart Super Saver when I saw it in the store and thought it would look great as a one color baby blanket!
