Preemie Blanket in Multiple Sizes with Different Yarns

Preemie Blanket in Multiple Sizes with Different Yarns free pattern

This was created for the CGOA Chapter Challenge 2019.  Even though the challenge itself is only using 18" x 20" blankets, I found that there seems to be five common sizes.  So, this pattern uses those five sizes, and it includes number of starting chains for each size using three different weight yarns in a simple, textured stitch pattern that keeps holes to a minimum so little fingers and toes won't get caught up in the blankets.

This scarf was originally named Simply Challenging at first because it's Simply made using single crochet and chain stitches, Challenging for your tension skills so that one color ends with the last stitch of the row, and the new color starts right off with the first stitch of the next row!  Nice and even color distribution!
