Quick and Cozy Kroller Blanket FREE crochet pattern | KT and the Squid

This blanket is easy enough for a beginner and works up very fast as well. You could easily finish a baby size in 1 day! Although the pattern calls for bulky weight yarn you could substitute with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. I also used some Red Heart Medley recently and think it would be a good sub as well.
