Simple Spider Stitch Blanket, Free Crochet Pattern

Spider stitch is one of my favorite crochet stitches! There are so many variations and so many ways to use it. Here I used basic spider stitch for a blanket pattern. I made a baby size blanket, but the pattern can be easily adjusted to any other size.
