The Emma baby blanket is a lacy, wavy striped blanket with all the cozy feels. Worked all in double crochet, this pattern is beginner friendly, but still has enough variety to be interesting to more experienced crocheters.

Crochet Foundry has run a year-long blog hop for a number of years now, featuring different designers in the crochet community. This week is my turn, with the Emma Blanket. To celebrate, you can purchase the ad-free PDF for $1 this week only. This offer expires at midnight on October 7th.
This pattern was designed with Furls Wander yarn. I chose to use a Palette Pack because the colors are already chosen to play nicely together and it takes the guesswork out of chasing your colors. This also bundles the yarn for you, which often saves money.
Wander yarn is a 100% acrylic yarn, which makes this blanket machine washable. This is important for baby blankets because of course, they will be washed quite frequently. (Or at least that has been the case for my children's blankets.) It is a soft yarn that does not have the plastic feel of some other acrylic yarns, and is cozy to snuggle with.
I love my Furls hooks. I have been using them for a number of yearns now and have to say the majority of my hooks are from Furls. They are my go-to hooks for any project. I love the different options and color choices they have. Furls has some of the best customer service I have ever encountered, even as the company continues to grow.
I love how Furls hooks glide over the yarn. They have different materials for the hooks, which mean you can find one with just the right grip on the yarn to allow your project to work smoothly without slowing you down. I love how they fit in your hand and are comfortable to crochet with for extended periods of time. No cramping or fatigue. Just great, pretty tools to use in all your crochet projects.
