Beautiful Unique Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern Ideal Baby Gift

A free crochet pattern for a beautiful unique textured baby blanket.
I love love love this crochet stitch combination, which creates a no-hole baby blanket, with enough scrumptious texture to wrap a new baby up in. 

This is my favorite go to baby blanket crochet pattern. 
Chain a multiple of 3 + 3 ch

For this pink Blanket I used Baby Pink 4 Ply and a 4.00mm Hook
Terms and pattern written in US terms.

Row 1: In 2nd ch from hook (1sc, 2dc in next ch) *[skip 2ch, 1sc 2dc in next ch]*, repeat from * to * until you reach the last 3ch, skip 2ch, 1sc in last ch, turn.

Row 2: ch1, sc into the base of the ch1, 2dc into same space, *[skip 2dc, 1sc 2dc in next sc]*, 
repeat * to* until last 2 stitches, skip 2dc, 1sc in top of turning ch.

Repeat row 2 for pattern.

Please do not overcomplicate this easy crochet pattern because after your first row you are working INTO the SC of PREVIOS round, ie. putting the stitch combination  (sc, 2dc)  into each sc of previous round

Wave Border
Ch 2 and work DC,   ALL the way around the outside of your blanket
Corners work (2DC, ch2, 2DC)  in Each corner.

Written pattern for the crochet border (however I have added a very clear video below which I suggest watching to understand the TURN of your work.

Chain 3, dc in next 3 stitches. Work 4 chain stitches, TURN your Work, and slip stitch INTO the top of your chain 3 (4 Dc and a chain 4 space, which you will work the 7 Dc into)

TURN your Work
Chain 1 and work 7 DCs into the Chain space created by the Chain 4.
DC into the next 4 stitches from previous round, and  work 4 double crochets, 4 chain stitches and TURN. slip stitch INTO the top of your chain 3 (4 Dc and a chain 4 space) Repeat around. 
Finish off by slip stitching into the very first stitch combination. 
Fasten off and weave in ends. 

Whilst I do not claim to be a professional crochet designer I am a crochet hobbyist and addict, crochet is my passion. I love to experiment and come up with crochet designs, that I posted on my Facebook Page, which then got shared around, thus leading to people contacting me and asking to help them or if I have a pattern for them. 

I spent more time via emails and face book answering questions about my work, I decided to create this blog to help inspire and help others to create beautiful crocheted pieces of work. 

So sometimes the patterns will be written as how I have made and understood and interpreted them. Sometimes I may even make something, not take notes and need to go back and work out what I did. 
As Always I welcome any constructive feedback.
