“There is something timeless and classic about a good chevron blanket. I have made my Timeless Teal Chevron Blanket so many times this year for baby showers that I could probably crochet one in my sleep. This blanket is honestly a huge hit no matter what colour I made it in. I have even made it in colours that I wasn’t particularly drawn to and ended up loving it so much I kept it for my daugther. “
“I saw this yarn stack in JoAnn’s one day and I just knew it would make a sweet little blanket with the Ocean colorway. So, with the ocean in mind, I decided to use the puff chevron stitch pattern to create these sweet little waves.
I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did and I would love to see any pictures! “
“When I first received the ‘I Wanna Make a Blankie‘ Yarn new from Lion Brand, I was excited to get crocheting! The Basilisk Baby Blanket pattern turned out amazing! And how fun is it that it’s a free pattern as well as a Lion Brand Kit! “
“Welcome to my free crochet pattern for Crocheted C2C Cacti Baby Blanket. About a year ago I was inspired by C2C Hearts Blankets and when I designed my C2C Cactus Square Pattern I knew a Cacti Blanket was needed. My Crocheted C2C Cacti Baby Blanket came out beautiful. The colors and textures compiment each other. I used Crochet Single Rib Stitch for border by using a framing method of doing one side at a time. I really love this border as it adds stability. “
“I’ve included 2 graphs, first one has a cactus without flowers and the second has cactus with flowers in the graph. A third options is to add a flower or two in a color of your choice using my Crocheted Layered Flower Pattern, as seen in the pictures on this blog post. This is a versatile pattern than can be made for a baby girl, boy or neutral gender for parent’s waiting to be surprised. The completed blanket is 32 inches by 32 inches. “

” Who loves watermelons in summertime? I certainly do! Summertime has all the retail stores displaying watermelons on everything. When I first started crocheting one of my first projects was a watermelon zipper pouch. Today I want to share my easy Crocheted Watermelon C2C Baby Blanket. Crocheted corner to corner is a very easy way to create a beautiful texture and works up quickly. “
” One of my favorite things about granny squares is that you don’t have to be limited to basic stitches. For this granny square pattern, I used both a bobble stitch and double crochet to make a gorgeous texture! Plus I used multiple colors for a fun look! When LoveCrochet graciously gave me some of a new line of yarns they had out, I immediately knew it would be perfect for a blanket! “
“This cute llama and cactus blanket took me much longer than I anticipated to finish, but I’m thrilled that it’s complete! And it’s one of my new favorites!
I first made the cactus and I had such a great response from everyone! I wasn’t 100% sure where I was headed with the blanket, but when I added llamas it was definitely going in the right direction!”
“I’m so incredibly thrilled to be sharing with you the completed Ocean Afghan! This has been a work of love since May and I enjoyed bringing this together right to the very end.
“Welcome to Rich Textures Crochet! Today we will learn how to crochet this gorgeous gender neutral baby blanket: The Peek-A-Boo Baby Blanket.
When you don’t know the gender of the baby being born, it’s always a challenge to find gender neutral baby blanket.”
” I’ve worked the blanket using the simple moss stitch pattern, adorning the blanket with a bunny silhouette worked in single crochet stitches. In total you will need 3 colours for your own blanket. The white used in the tail of mine was from some scrap yarn that I had lying around the house. You will need a very small amount! “
” For me, green is just the perfect colour for a baby blanket. Green symbolizes life, renewal, growth and new beginnings, everything you would associate with a brand new baby. “
“It is a super simple corner-to-corner blanket made using Bernat Baby Bundle yarn. It’s a yarn that is made up of four different types of yarn, giving the finished blanket a really fun texture and look. It is super squishy (perfect for babies, as advertised!) and really soft with beautiful drape. I was afraid the C2C stitch would be too dense, causing the blanket to be a bit stiff, but it isn’t at all. “
” I was so happy to make this beautiful blanket for the arrival of my first grand daughter. I found that these small cables are easy to crochet and the yarn highlights them so well. Choosing to use Lion Brand’s Vel-Luxe yarn in pale gray was a fabulous choice as it is so luxurious and soft. I love that it comes in a cake and it is a “4” yarn, but it is not a normal “4”. I consider this yarn to be a hefty 4 yarn. Keep scrolling to find the pattern at the end of this post. “

“” Now this pattern is super easy to adjust and make bigger if you’d like to make an afghan or a bedspread – the multiple is listed in the notes but you just increase by 5 each row. I added a nice border because I like when edges look clean, ya know? Honestly, you could make this pattern with any yarn you have on hand, you just need to adjust the hook to suit your needs. “

It is so easy to customize both the length and width of your chevron baby blanket and I’m going to show you exactly how to do that.”
” It’s a pentagon, or five-sided polygon. It reminds me of a giant sand dollar so it would be very suitable for a nautical theme in a baby’s room. There are no hole-y bits since the staggered shells make a solid surface. “
” Oh my goodness! It’s here! I sit here, in my hotel in Florida, so that I can get this out to you guys because I am that excited to release this pattern!! The Juliet’s November Afghan!

“I love these two coordinating colors of Red Heart Yarns Super Saver. So pretty and they work so well with this stitch pattern.
This blanket is worked in an easy two-row repeat with both written and video instruction. The rows are so short that you can carry up the yarn along the side so you don’t end up with tons of loose strands to weave in. And then you have the adorable little shell border.
It’s a wonderful project, especially for a baby shower, but you can also use the provided stitch multiple to make it any size you like.”

” I think my girlfriends had a secret meeting and decided to all have babies at the same time. Since I am done having babies myself this, of course, means that I get all the baby cuddles and newborn smells without the dirty diapers annnnd that I need to crochet faster. Ha! Creighton’s blanket is an extremely customizable crochet stitch sampler pattern that can be used for a baby blanket, a lapghan, or a full blown king size blanket! “
” The all-over stitch pattern makes this cozy blanket a relaxing project for all skill levels. One-row stripes in three colors allow you to carry the yarn up the side without cutting, so you only have a few ends to weave in. “

It has a very cute look once it’s finished and makes a great baby shower gift. Most doctors recommend against letting babies sleep under blankets these days, but baby blankets still make great room decor or mats for tummy time. “
“It’s no secret that I love baby blankets. While times have changed and pediatricians no longer recommend that you let infants sleep underneath blankets (especially not bulky crochet ones), baby blankets still make great projects to gift for decorating a nursery, to use as stroller or car seat blankets, or to use for “tummy time.”
” I’ve always loved blankets that are assembled on point. I mean, why should everything just be in regular straight rows, right? “
” Since baby blankets are washed frequently, I didn’t want to choose any yarn that requires special care. Everyday Baby is also a light weight yarn, so the finished blanket is much easier to roll up for shipping than a bulkier, medium weight blanket. “
” There is something really fun about crocheting ripple blankets, but sometimes they are out of reach of beginner crocheters because of complex decreasing patterns. This pattern is very beginner-friendly and uses skipping stitches for decreasing. “
” This pattern was originally published on FaveCrafts in June, 2015, but I’ve made some updates and I’ve also added more sizes. Enjoy! “
” Vintage style crochet patterns just make me happy. I designed this Dancing Mushroom chart years ago, and I finally found the perfect yarn to turn it into a sweet little blanket. The center image panel is surrounded by a thick border in several different stitch patterns which add to the style of this family heirloom to-be. “
” The I’m a Square blanket is full of bright, happy colors. It’s crocheted using join as you go methods so there is no seaming. It is quite easy to adjust the size of this blanket.

“T his crochet blanket pattern is easy enough for a beginner and works up very fast as well. You could easily finish a baby size in 1 day! Although the pattern calls for bulky weight yarn you could substitute with 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. I also used some Red Heart Medley recently and think it would be a good sub as well. “
