Quick Crochet Baby Blanket

Materials and Finished Blanket Sizes:

  • Light Weight Baby Yarn: The yarn I used is Bernat Softee baby yarn. I made sample blankets in a couple of different colors.My preemie-sized sample was crocheted using the color called “Pink,” which is perfect for a baby girl. My newborn-sized blanket was crocheted using the “Antique White” color, which works well for either baby boys or girls. Feel free to use a different color; if crocheted in a boy-friendly color, this blanket would also be ideal for baby boys. If you aren't sure of the baby's gender, pick a neutral color that could work either way — the mint green color would be a nice choice, as would the white color. For best results, make sure all skeins are from the same dye lot.This yarn is rated as a “3” on the Craft Yarn Council's yarn weight system. This weight is also known as “light worsted,” “DK,” or “Double Knitting.” According to the yarn label, the manufacturer also labels it as “Sport DK,” “Tricot Léger,” and “Jersey Ligero.”
  • Preemie Size: My sample blanket measures about 26 inches wide by 34 inches long. This measurement was taken without any edging; if you wish to add an edging, your finished blanket will be a bit bigger.You will need 2 balls / 10 oz / 280 g of yarn for the blanket itself, plus more for crocheting your gauge swatch. So if you crochet your blanket using Bernat Softee, you'll need to get 3 5 oz skeins of yarn. See pictures of the pink crochet baby blanket for an example of how this blanket looks.As far as yardage goes, you'll need about 724 yards / 662 meters for the blanket itself, plus more for your gauge swatch.
  • Newborn / Receiving Blanket Size: My sample blanket is 30 inches square. You could make yours a bit longer — around 34 inches long — if you prefer.You will need 2-3 of the 5 oz balls of Bernat Softee for this size. My sample blanket measures about 30 inches square, and I used exactly two balls with none left over. If you'd like to work a gauge swatch, or make your blanket longer, you'll need a third ball of this yarn.
  • Toddler Size: Finished size is about 36 inches by 44 inches.I estimate that you'll need 4 of the 5 oz balls of Bernat Softee to crochet this size.
  • Crochet Hook: I used a size I crochet hook to make my sample baby blankets. You might need a different size hook to achieve the correct gauge.
  • Tapestry Needle: You'll use this for weaving in ends when you are finished crocheting your blanket.
  • Safety Pin: You'll need a stitch marker or safety pin for temporarily marking a stitch at the beginning of your work.

  41. Pretty. Did you try the pattern I was using? Chain 126, first row all single crochet. 3rd ch from beg 1 double crochet, 1 single crochet. Skip st 1 dbl crocet, 1 single crochet. Skip stitch repeat to end of row. Chain 2 turn, 1 dbl, 2 single in first stitch. Skip one? repeat pattern to end, repeat pattern. Then decide on a border.

  42. this is baloney. after clicking around several pages it is just the sc, ch1 patt that I have seen every where I’ll think twice before clicking on a daily crochet link again

  43. I think just sc would be very boring and take forever. I’ve been making c2c baby blankets, made 9 in past month, just crocheting in the evenings. This is pretty though.

  44. Made this blanket with 4 ply and think it is beautiful but, much to heavy as a baby blanket. Guess 3 ply would be better and more fluffy and baby friendly. I will try again as I do like the pattern.

  45. Open it with a computer, where you can print, or write it down . Go to the link where it came from and hold down the control key and hit the letter p at the same time should bring up hi pro.red to print from.

  48. This takes me to site after site and it has not yet given me the pattern . Can someone help me or write it and post it here. .may be because I’m having to use an iPod to get it . ThNks for help
