Welcome to my website, Everyone! I’ve had so many requests for written patterns to my video patterns that I decided it was finally time to begin a blog. For my very first post on this brand-spanken-new website, I figured I’d start with something simple. My super easy baby blanket.
The Easy Baby Blanket is perfect not only because it’s simple but also because the stitches give a lovely finished look; they’re functional too. With the holes it creates within the pattern, they’re perfect for little fingers to “tickle” the material. It’s a great comfort piece for any little one. In my video tutorial attached below, I create a small swatch or lovie-sized blanket. If you’d like to create something closer to crib-sized, expect to begin by chaining on about 160 chain stitches (Roughly 56 stitches for a lovie-sized blanket).
Pattern Level: Beginner
- Size I Crochet Hook (size up if you want larger holes, size down if you want them to be smaller)
- Yarn–Any baby blanket yarn will do. I used Pound of Love by Lion Brand. You will need about 2 skeins for a crib-sized blanket.
- Darning needle for weaving in your ends
- Optional: Tape Measure if you need your blanket to be a specific size
Begin by creating a slip stitch and chaining on in multiples of 4. For a crib-sized blanket, ch. roughly 160.
Row 1: [DC, ch. 2, SC] in 4th ch. from hook. *Skip the next 3 stitches. [DC, ch. 2, SC] in next ch. Repeat from * til end of row.
Row 2-End: ch. 3, turn your work. [DC, ch. 2, SC] into first ch. 2 chain space that was created on previous row. *[DC, ch. 2, SC] into next ch. 2 chain space. Repeat from * til end of row.
That’s all there is to the pattern! It’s incredibly simple and works up quickly for a baby blanket. If you’d like to watch my tutorial on it, you can view that here:
