Found a free pattern that puts the stitches in the spaces instead of the stitch. It's pretty too.
This pattern is from Bernat, so it's also found on this page along with several other free patterns that would work for you:
Bernat yarns' Website: www.yarnspirations.com has lots of free patterns for baby blankets
This pattern may be what you're looking for: http://www.yarnspirations.com/pattern/crochet/rainbow-blanket-0 The stitches are worked in the spaces not the stitches themselves and it's rated "easy"
I found one but can't get the site to let me post the link.

For that type of yarn I often add a cotton yarn and crochet with both strands. Just find a matching cotton color. The cotton thread will make the stitches show up but will blend in nicely.
