Free Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns

crochet baby blanket pattern-crochet baby hat pattern Easy Baby Blanket and Baby Hat Set {Free Crochet Pattern} My friends have just had baby Boys! and I was looing for nice crochet pram blanket,  and matching crochet hat set. To make as a gift, I found lots of beautiful girly ones, but  I struggled to find boyish blankets. I  wanted to make sure that it was cosy but also looked like modern for them. I love how easily this stitch works up using combinations of  (sk 1 single crochet, 2 single crochet in next sc} 
It  also gives this blanket a cosy texture.
I used a wool arran, with cotton mix
(I was given the wool so I am unsure of its actual make.)

However I would  say its Arran /worsted weight. It you are using a lighter wool make sure you follow the size guidelines. And I would recommend lining it, with a cosy fleece.


I used a very soft cotton wool mix blend Aran (worsted weight)
And a 4.00mm Hook

Gauge on a blanket with a pattern stitch is not so important. I go by measurements.  IF you have not been given measurements then a good rule of thumb for making a pram cover or blanket is
Baby Pram cover or Blanket size.

 W75cm x L100cm - 30 inches x 39 inches .

Ch 101 Loosely.  (or until desired width is achieved)

Row 1:  2 sc in 3rd ch from hook. (Sk next ch, 2 sc in next ch) across to end,  turn — 100 sts.

Row 2: Ch 1, sk first sc, 2 sc in next sc (sk 1 sc, 2 sc in next sc) across to end,  turn — 100 sts.

Repeat Row 2 until blanket is 30 inches. (or desired length)

Edging: 
Round 1: Ch 1, dc in each dc across to end of row,  work 3 dc in  last stitch {corner turn) dc evenly across left edge. 3 dc in last stitch {corner turn}
 Dc in bottom loop of each ch across to end, 3 sc in last loop {corner}
Dc evenly across last edge to end, 3 more dc in last sp; join with sl st to first dc of rnd  {corner}

Rd 2: Ch 4 (counts as first dc and ch-1 sp). (Sk 1 sc, 5dc in next sc, ch 1) across to corner.
(2Dc in same sc, ch 1) 2 times more (corner turned). Repeat around for next three sides of blanket, only repeating last (dc in same sc, ch1) one time in last corner.
Join with sl st to 3 rd ch of 1 st ch-4.
 Fasten off.
To finish,  you can weave a ribbon of your chosen colour through the Dc round of blanket edge.

I love making baby blankets, the wools we have to choose from is unbelieveable, I have several books by my side when I am crocheting like the
The Complete Book of Crochet Stitch Designs: 500 Classic and Original Patterns I have made some beautiful pieces using some of these easy to follow stitches. I also sit at nigh time and can make up a crochet square of the stitch using scrap yarn, once I have a few of them I stitch together and donate to the local elderly Folks home. where they love getting these simple lapghans.
