You can use any yarn you want and just make sure it’s DK/worsted weight yarn, as this is a fairly small project. It measures approx 6 inches by 5 inches when finished (depending on how tight you crochet).

This pattern is suitable for beginners.

Materials & tools:

  • 4 mm crochet hook;
  • yarn needle for weaving ends;
  • wool yarn.

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Patons Beehive Baby Sport in Pink (2175)

  • Worsted weight yarn. I used Patons Beehive Baby Sport in Pink (2175). Alternatives include Bernat Satin Sport, Red Heart Soft, Caron Simply Soft, and Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice.
  • Crochet hook size I/5.5mm or size needed to obtain gauge
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends

Gauge: 15 sts x 11 rows = 4”x4” in double crochet pattern

– 4 mm crochet hook

You will need a 4 mm crochet hook to make this pattern. You can use any size crochet hook that you have. If you are substituting a different-sized hook, be sure that the gauge is the same as described in each section below:

  • With an 8-inch (20 cm) diameter round pillow form, 16 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in single crochet (U.S.) or double crochet (U.K.).
  • With an 8-inch (20 cm) diameter round pillow form, 19 stitches and 25 rows = 4 inches/10 cm in half double crochet (U.S.) or treble stitch (U.K.).

– Yarn needle for weaving ends

  • Yarn needle for weaving ends

If you’re not sure what a yarn needle is, it’s like a long, thin sewing needle. If you have any sewing experience at all, this will be familiar to you as the type of needle used when sewing pieces together. As we said in our video (if you missed it, check out the link above), you can use these to weave in your ends or sew pieces together. Just make sure to use the right size for the yarn or thread that you’re using!

A good rule of thumb: 1 inch = 2 mm

Abbreviations & Skills:

This pattern is written in American English.

Abbreviations:

ch – chain stitch

sc – single crochet stitch

sk st – skip stitch

– ch – chain stitch

To make a chain stitch, you need to insert the hook into the first stitch of your last row and pull up a loop. Continue doing this until you’ve got enough loops on your hook to make 1 chain stitch.

Now that you know how to make one, let’s talk about how many chain stitches you need for this pattern! In most cases, each pattern will tell you how long it should be and how many chains are needed per row or round. For example:

Chain 93 (or any number of chains evenly divisible by three)

If it doesn’t tell us exactly how many chains we need in our beginning chain space then just count them out! You can also use something like an app like [Stitch Counter] (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com….) where all you have to do is put in the number of stitches (not including turning chains).

– sc – single crochet stitch

  • SC. Single crochet stitch
  • Insert the crochet hook into the first st, yo and pull up a loop, insert the hook into the next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through all loops on the hook. The result will be two stitches decreased into one.

– sk st – skip stitch

This is a very simple stitch to master, but it can be used in many different ways. It’s a decrease, so it’s great for making patterns! It also helps to make garments more stretchy.

The sk st is one of the most basic stitches and can be used as a decrease or an increase. The sk st stands for “skip stitch” and is often used in crochet pattern books as an abbreviation for any time you need to skip over one or more stitches at any given point during your project. This includes decreases and increases!

Special stitches:

  • decrease two stitches into one: insert the crochet hook into the first st, yo and pull up a loop, insert the hook into the next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through all loops on the hook. The result will be two stitches decreased into one.
  • increase by working 2 stitches together (abbreviated inc): *yo insert hook in next stitch* 4 times; yo and draw through all 5 loops on your hook at once.

(decrease two stitches into one): insert the crochet hook into the first st, yo and pull up a loop, insert the hook into the next st, yo and pull up a loop, yo and draw through all loops on the hook. The result will be two stitches decreased into one.

Decrease two stitches into one:

  • Insert the crochet hook into the first st, yo and pull up a loop.
  • Insert the hook into the next st, yo and pull up a loop.
  • Yo and draw through all loops on the hook (the result will be two stitches decreased into one).

Instructions:

With yarn color A (pink in my case): Ch 26.

Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and each ch across, turn. (25)

Row 2-9: Ch 1, sc in same st as joining, sc in each st across to last st, 3 sc in last st; turn work 180 degrees so that seam is facing you and continue working down row of sts; when you reach end of row 9, join with sl st to first stitch of round 10 (or just continue working back and forth around the edge of your afghan).

Repeat rows 2-9 until piece measures 18 inches long from beginning or desired length

With yarn color A (pink in my case): Ch 26.

With yarn color A (pink in my case): Ch 26.

The abbreviation for chain is “ch,” so ch 26 means to make a chain of 26 stitches. If you’re following along with the pattern, you’ll be making two of these chains, one on each side of your work.

WHAT IS THE BEST YARN FOR BABY BLANKETS?

What is the best yarn to make a baby blanket in? I get this question a lot, and the answer is that it depends on the family you are making it for!

Tip: Ask the person who you are making the baby blanket for what they prefer in a yarn, if there are any allergies, and their pick of a color. I usually recommend a washable yarn since it will more than likely be used over and over again.

My favorite types of yarn to make baby blankets with are acrylic yarns (easy to wash), cotton yarns and soft chenille velvet type yarns.

Acrylic Yarns

Acrylic yarns are a great choice for baby blankets because they are easy to care for and will look great wash after wash.

Some of my favorite acrylic yarns are Caron Simply Soft by Yarnspirtaions, Vanna’s Choice by Lion Brand and We Crochet Brava Worsted, all of which are a worsted weight yarn (aka medium weight yarn).

Cotton Yarns

Cotton yarns are also a great choice for baby blankets, especially in the Summer, since they are a breathable fiber and easy to clean.

One of my favorite cotton yarns to use for blankets is 24/7 Cotton, since it has a beautiful sheen to it and is available in a wire array of colors. I also like using Comfy Cotton (a cotton blend) by Lion Brand to for crocheting in summer for baby blankets. They are both a four weight yarn (aka worsted weight yarn) that are lightweight and easy to work with.

Soft Chenille Yarns

Chenille yarns are so fun to work up because they are soft and make a blanket that is extra cuddly.

I recommend using the single crochet stitch with the velvet type yarns because the stitches can worm (or come loose) which can create a messy blanket.

Polyester Yarns

Polyester yarns are easy to make into baby blankets because they are a chenille style yarn that is soft and breathable.

My favorite polyester yarn to use is Bernat Baby Blanket yarn since it is a super bulky six yarn weight that works up quickly. If you haven’t tried Bernat baby blanket, then you need to as soon as you get the chance!

Overall, there are so many yarn choices, brands and fibers, so you will always be able to find a good match of yarn for your baby gift.

Below, the baby blanket & lovey patterns have a variety of different yarn brands that were used. I linked them all up, so you’ll be able to see the fiber content and the color choices, be it bright colors or neutral colors, that are best for you and your client.

CROCHET BABY BLANKET SIZES

If you have ever wondered what size a crochet baby blanket should be, then I can help! Crocheted blankets can really come in any size.

A good deal of crochet baby blanket patterns will have the size listed within in the pattern, but may also have sizes that are even larger. Be sure to look over the pattern you pick to be sure of the size baby blanket you are going to make.

The most common sizes for crochet baby blankets are lovey, strollers, receiving and baby. These are just suggested sizes, and the finished blanket sizes will more than likely vary from pattern to pattern.
