I love this Battenberg Blanket which make it fun and easy to crochet, and a good project to eat all the leftover yarn in wonder. If you are looking for crochet blankets for little ones? I have 40+ DIY Knit & Crochet Blanket Free Patterns you can check them out. This arrangement of squishy colorful squares, alternated with a simple squares in a neutral shade made me think of the checkerboard pink and yellow sponge cubes of a Battenberg Cake, a UK teatime favorite from my childhood days. The cake version comes wrapped in a simple marzipan coat, with sugar sprinkles. So I made a border of simple stitches to match, with a dusting of picots along the edges. This pattern uses a basic motif with a simple border pattern and a joining method which is a new technique, however a full video tutorial is included.
