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 a 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 the 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 the pattern.
Please do not overcomplicate this easy crochet pattern because after your first row you are working INTO the SC of the PREVIOUS round, ie. putting the stitch combination (sc, 2dc) into each sc of previous round
Crochet Wave Border
Ch 2 and work DC, ALL the way around the outside of your blanket
Corners work (2DC, ch2, 2DC) in Each corner.

( 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 the 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.
