Free Crochet Blanket Pattern | BIG Boys Crochet Blanket

This crochet blanket is so easy to make and is perfect for those wanting extra warmth but without the weight and bulkiness of many blankets out there.

My Uncle, who is disabled, and finds himself needing a little extra layer of warmth at night sitting watching the TV, asked me to crochet him a blanket. 
He wanted one that was warm enough but not heavy so that he could handle it himself.

Many of the shop-bought blankets were very heavy to handle. He wanted a lightweight crochet blanket but still needed to be warm and cozy.

Big Boys Crochet Blanket
 A FREE CROCHET BLANKET PATTERN

I chose the Granny square pattern as I knew this to be cosy, when made up, yet a nice lightweight stitch that makes a big blanket easy to handle.

I do love the Granny Square pattern, it makes up quickly for a blanket but it is not heavy. 

Creating the perfect crochet baby blanket. Just keep on repeating the rounds to make the blanket any size you wish

I used 2 strands of 4py James Brett blue held together as I worked.  However I would also use a baby DK to make this too,

BUT you can use any type of yarn to make any size and any thickness you fancy. 

Just remember if you go up a size in hook or yarn your blanket will work quicker and be thicker.

Choose smaller hooks and thinner yarn your blanket will be smaller and thinner. 
for this blanket I used a 4.50mm hook


Notes : Ch 3 at beg of each Rnd counts as dc throughout. 


[ ] = stitch combinations for repeats will appear within these
Ch 4. join to make a loop with sl, st into the first chain (this is your centre ring)


Rnd 1: work the first ch3 into the ring, (counts as first double crochet) work 2 more dc stitches into the ring, (first set of dcs made) ch 2 (corner), [work 3 dcs, ch2] repeat 2 more times.  join by 1 slip stitch into the top of the starting ch3,
(You will now have 4 corners of 2 ch, and 4 sets of dc.)

Rnd 2: sl, st across the first set of  3 dcs to the corner sp, ch3,( counts as 1st dc), 2 dc in space, ch2 work 3 dc in the same space, [ ch 1, work 3dc in corner space, ch2, 3dc in corner space],  repeat [ ] to last set of previous rnds 3 dcs, ch1, 1 slst in top of ch3, to join

Rnd 3: sl, st across the first set of  3 dcs to the corner sp, ch3 (counts as1st dc), 2dc, ch2, 3dc in corner space, ch1, make 3dcs in previous rnds ch1 space, [ch 1, work 3dc in corner space, ch2, 3dc in corner space, ch1, 3dc in next ch1 space] repeat [ ]  to last set of previous rnds dcs, ch1, 1 slst in top of ch3, to join

Rnd 4: sl, st across the first set of  3 dcs to the corner sp, ch3 (counts as1st dc),  2dc in ch2 space,ch2, 3dcin same space (corner created)

[{ch1, make 3dcs in previous rnds ch1 space,} (repeat x2)
3dc in ch2 space,ch2, 3dcin same space (corner created)]
continue working as established  to last set of previous rnds 3 dcs, ch1, 1 slst in top of ch3, to join

Keep Working in Rnds as established, having (Ch 1. 3 dc) in each previous round ch-1 sp and (3 dc. Ch 2. 3 dc) in each corner ch-2 sp until work from center measures approx. (increasing 1 set of 3dc in each round)
You can carry on as long as you like to make this blanket as big as you wish.
 
You can choose a contrasting color to work these double crochet rounds or continue with the same color.
 
Working evenly around the outside edge of the blanket pick up and work a double crochet into each available stitch along, working (3dc, ch2, 3dc) in each corner.
 
Last Round, make 1 single crochet in each stitch around making 3sc in the ch2 space this stops the corners curling.

Newborn Baby Crochet Hat Pattern Perfect Crochet Hat for Donating to Hospitals

This newborn crochet hat is perfect for babies just coming out of the hospital or making a few baby hats in varying colors and donating them to your local hospital.  Newborn Babies can lose heat really quickly straight after birth so they require warm hats immediately to help keep them warm and cozy.  If they lose heat too quickly after being born they can become quite unwell.  Please check with your local maternity unit on what colors they may need, as some units run a traffic light system and are a fantastic visual aid for the midwives to easily identify babies that may need a little more help and attention in the first few hours.  RED -   red hats are used for babies who are more at risk and require more regular observations.  AMBER hats - require just a little bit more attention.  GREEN Hats - lower risk babies and only require routine observations as they are healthy and a good weight.  (Please check with the labor Delivery suite midwives if donations are being taken at this tim
