Easy Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Easy Crochet Baby Blanket PatternThe simplest way I know to make an easy crochet baby blanket is to use a large hook, a basic stitch and a soft yarn. That is what I’ll be showing you here.

The use of a large hook such as an 8.0mm will ensure that the Easy Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern works up fast.

The use of a basic stitch such as the single crochet stitch gives you a finish so that the blanket will be warm for the baby because it is a smaller stitch and crochets close together. You will only have to repeat that same stitch right throughout the pattern. This is what makes it easy.

The use of the chenille yarn ensures that the blanket is soft and warm for the baby.

My baby chihuahua, Piccolo, uses his easy crochet baby blanket every night! I took a picture of him looking all cute with his blanket to show you. What a poser!

Written Instructions

Ch 72. (If you want a wider blanket add more chain stitches here. If you want a less wider blanket take off chain stitches in sets of 10’s. Eg. 62 or 52 chain stitches instead of 72 chain stitches.)

Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hk, 1 sc in each ch st across to end, turn. (70 sts)

Row 2: ch 1, 1 sc into 1st st and into each st across to end, (don’t do your last st in the ch-1 turning chain), turn. (70 sts)

Repeat row 2 for as many rows as you need to get the length you want the baby blanket to be. (70 sts on each row)

Finish/Fasten off.

Weave in loose ends with yarn needle.

That’s all there is to it.

All the best,

    • Paula says:

      Hello Carol, This is an Australian yarn that was bought in a bargain store. It’s unlikely that you will find it. You may have to substitute with a similar yarn.
