Looking for a soft baby gift? A gift that is soft but not too hard to make? This gray blue skies crochet baby blanket pattern will be a great project to try.

It only has 2 stitches, double crochet and single crochet. It is a great beginner baby blanket. This chunky baby blanket blanket works up fast too.

I was looking for my next project and wanted to make a soft bulky yarn baby blanket with using Bernat Blanket Yarn baby stripes chenille yarn.

I love the color of this Above the Clouds yarn. There are two shades of blue gray plus a medium gray and white. The colors are perfect for a little boy. It is a bulky gauge 6 yarn so the blanket will work up fast.

The self striping chunky chenille yarn is great because you get lots colors without having to change colors. There are less ends to weave in.

There are lots of different colors of chunky Bernat Baby blanket Chenille yarn, perfect for a little boy or girl. Most you can easily scale up for a throw too.

The yarn is a chenille style, so it is fuzzy. My little girl keeps wanting to rub her face against the blanket.
