I am always drawn to crochet flower stitches, which alongside with granny squares are the best one can use especially when making a (baby) blanket.
Following are stitches I have pinned on my pinterest board here, most of them by mypicot. Let me say here that I am in no way affiliated with it, nor with any of the other sites I am sharing here.
And now Tulips, ladies and gents! It seems people on the internet are crazy about them :)
Below is the same pattern but it goes with schematics.
