This Simple Easy Baby Blanket Is A Great First Big Project [Free Pattern]

This simple easy baby blanket with a beautiful shell stitch border is so easy to make and it's so incredibly comfy. Ellen Baby Blanket designed by Cream Of The Crop Crochet is the perfect pattern to create a baby blanket that's perfect as a baby shower gift. This simple handmade blanket would make a treasured heirloom to pass from generation to generation!

Depending on the size of the blanket you want to make, you will need different yardage of baby yarn. I recommend using a lightweight yarn in a solid color for this project, as it will show off the stitch pattern nicely. If you want to add a border to the blanket, you will need additional yarn in a contrasting color.

To determine how much yarn you need, start by making a small swatch using the stitch pattern and measuring how many yards of yarn it takes to create 4 inches of fabric. Then, multiply that number by the number of inches in the width or length of the blanket (depending on which dimension you are working with). Once you have determined how much yarn you need, select your colors and get started!
