When I first received the ‘I Wanna Make a Blankie‘ Yarn new from Lion Brand, I was excited to get crocheting! The Basilisk Baby Blanket pattern turned out amazing! And how fun is it that it’s a free pattern as well as a Lion Brand Kit!
The great thing about the Lion Brand Kit this time is that I made the Basilisk Baby Blanket with one of their brand new yarns! The I Wanna Make a Blankie yarn is a huge cake yarn, with enough yardage to create a full sized blanket in one sitting, it’s pretty incredible. When you order a Lion Brand Yarn Kit, it comes with the printed pattern + all of the yarn you need to crochet!
