My First Baby Blanket and Hat with Marly Bird

Welcome to My First with Marly Bird! Each month Marly will teach you a new crocheting or knitting project. These projects are designed to make you comfortable as you transition between learning the stitches and making a project. Every design has a written pattern and a step-by-step video tutorial to follow along.

This month we’re featuring a crocheted baby blanket and hat. Download the free pattern, buy the supplies for it from, then watch Marly’s videos to learn how to make them!

The blanket has a simple repeating pattern, so it’s easy to memorize. The same colors are used in the hat, so they make a great gift for baby showers. Plus, the With Love yarn is soft and easy to care for.
