Free Crochet Pattern for a Beautiful Baby blanket or Baby Shawl (LARGE)

It is So Easy to crochet this baby blanket as it is an easy-to-remember crochet stitch pattern repeat not only making it an impressive baby blanket go-to pattern but also Perfect for  Beginners.

I am so excited for a dear friend who is expecting their first baby. That I just knew I had to crochet her and her baby a unique crochet blanket.

After a few heartbreaking years and lots of trying she is finally going to be a mum. 

So I was asked to create a special cozy crochet blanket for the new arrival. she had asked me for a large baby blanket that could also be used as a crochet baby shawl. 

This is crochet blanket is actually a pretty BIG baby blanket. However, it is an easy repetitive stitch and actually works up in no time.

After trying out several multiple stitches worked together, getting so far and then not liking the texture or look of the blanket.

Finally, I settled on the effect created by working sc/2dc in the same stitch it looked perfect in the white yarn and I loved how quickly a nice soft blanket started to develop. The texture reminds me of fluffy little white clouds. 

It is really soft and warm. 

This is a great pattern for working on whilst watching your favorite TV show as the repetition is so easy.

Beginners, please do not be put off by how impressive this blanket is as it's the perfect project for a beginner too.

Materials: 

4.500mm hook and a 5.00 mm hook for the starting chain to ensure it is Loosley crocheted. 

Pattern written in US terms (I am from the UK but prefer US terms) 

I used Double Knit /light worsted in White, (11 balls of 100grms) 

this blanket could also fit over a single bed as a cover. 

However, you CAN use any type of yarn and crochet hook size you wish by following the instructions on how to make the blanket any size you wish Pattern is written in US Terms.

The starting Chain is worked in multiples of 3 + 2

The pattern stitch is: sc/2dc in the same stitch

PLEASE NOTE: 

TO MAKE THE BLANKET ANY SIZE YOU WANT

Crochet a starting chain to the size you need, make sure you can divide the total amount of chains by 3, then add 2 more chains and follow the pattern below from row 1.

Start Blanket with  a 5.00mm hook 

Chain 161 (very loosely, or consider starting with a bigger hook) (This made my blanket 45 inches WIDE) Remember your tension may be different from mine, you may need to go up a hook or down a hook size, OR change your starting chain as long as you have a Multiple of 3 + 2

Change here to a 4.50mm hook and continue using it for the rest of the blanket

Row 1:  (1sc, 2dc) in 2nd ch from hook, * skip 2ch's, (1sc, 2dc) in next ch, * rpt from * * to last 3ch's, skip 2ch's, 1sc in last ch. Turn. (53 shells)

How to Get the C2C stitch look but follow a Very Easy Pattern. I LOVE the effect of the Diagonal Corner to Corner Stitch, however, Im not gonna lie if you struggle to get the hang of it, it is a frustrating crochet stitch, especially at the decreases! 

However, there IS a way to achieve a similar texture with this Easy Box Stitch.  I absolutely Love the finished baby blanket I just made using the box stitch and id even find it hard to differentiate between the 2 stitches. 

Diamond Crochet Blanket ( Ultimate scrap-ghan Project)

 The Ultimate Scrap Yarn Bursting Blanket Pattern.

diamond scrap yarn blanket crochet pattern
I actually started crocheting these diamonds one night, by sheer accident. But I soon realized I could use up all those little odds and ends of yarn, you know the little balls of leftover yarn that are too large to throw away yet not small enough to crochet any one particular thing.

This is one of these projects I have at the side and when I just want to mindlessly crochet for the sake of crocheting something, not needing too big a project, but just keep those hands busy.... ( yup we've all been there) what's great about this is, I never get bored sometimes even when I am working another project and get to the end of it, I see I have enough yarn left and quickly whip up another diamond piece. Any color, the only thing I do need to watch out for is the difference in yarn weight. If it is thicker I go down a hook or finer I go up a hook, but I mostly work in double knit or Aran so it's not too much of a problem.
  Probably like a LOT of us, yarn-holics, I have boxes of small balls of yarn just sitting around in bags collecting dust. You know those ones you think you may need one day yet your yarn stash is just getting bigger and bigger.
I refuse point blank to throw away good yarn, so I wanted something I could make using these odds and ends of wool. BUT some of the leftover bits of yarn were not long enough for even an individual row to make a blanket, not even big enough to perhaps make into squares, so I wanted something that still would look attractive yet not all half-finished rows and join.
So Let me introduce the Diamond Crochet Blanket, perfectly symmetrical in its formation easy to make by simply increasing and then decreasing at the ends of your rows, this is an awesome way to use up those small scraps of yarn and those odds and ends that are just not enough to throw away, yet not big enough for another project.

A Unique crochet Baby Blanket, with beautiful crochet stitches, finished with an easy crochet decorative border.   This baby blanket will become a family heirloom for all the future babies within the family.

I was looking for a baby blanket pattern that looked impressive yet would be easy and quick to make. I hunted all over and whilst I found several beautiful crocheted baby blanket patterns, none just seemed right for the recipient. I wanted a really unique crochet pattern.

Eventually, I stumbled on a crochet pattern design ( not an actual pattern) which looked delicate and would create a nice lacy textured blanket.

In today's modern world more a stroller or car seat sized blanket, yet could be used for those glorious days when out and about with a pram.

But the beauty of this pattern stitch is that you can just keep repeating the established pattern which is worked from the center out (think granny square but with shells and chain stitches)

for the baby set and blanket I used the beautiful Snuggly Sirdar 4 ply ( 2 x 100grms for the blanket...with a little leftover, which actually made the booties ( I cannot get over how beautiful this yarn works up for baby items-

FREE Vintage Crochet Shawl Pattern Easy

My great aunt came to visit us, she is 95 and every year she says this is my last year.... she just gets on a PLANE and fly's up to Scotland for her weeks holiday. She really is amazing, I wanted to make her something special for her birthday as it fell on her visit,
I found this beautiful vintage antique pattern and thought how awesome it would be to make it for my Aunt.

This would also make a gorgeous christening blanket for a new baby.

Free Crochet Pattern 12 Inch Afghan Square - Pane in My Dahlia by LisaAuch

Free Crochet Pattern 12 Inch Afghan Square.
I was asked if I would be interested in designing a 12 inch afghan square to take part in a Crochet A Long (CAL) with  American Crochet. 
I was pretty excited, as this idea had been on my to-do list for a while after seeing so many beautiful blankets last year made by joining 12 inch squares.
I wanted something eye catching and this year I had a beautiful Dahlia outside my window, so I wanted to created something that represented the beautiful flower I saw every morning through my window pane.
However actually trying to get a flower into a Square was a little more challenging than I first thought, and I wanted to make this as elegant but EASY as possible to make.

SO here is the Free Crochet Pattern for the Aptly named 'Pane in my Dahlia 12 inch afghan square.

How to Crochet The Star Stitch and Crochet a Warm Cosy Blanket

I came across a pattern for a baby blanket using the "star stitch" not only had I never heard of this crochet stitch before, but I had never tried it. SO I taught myself a new stitch. 
The star stitch is also known (as I have since found out and hence probably why I haven't hear of it before) the Margarite stitch, daisy stitch and star stitch.

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

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.



FREE Crochet C2C Baby Blanket Pattern A Free Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

FREE Crochet Pattern-Baby Blanket-Textured crrochet stitches-Balnket Pattern with the Corner to Corner Stitch Free baby blanket Crochet Pattern. Beautiful Textured Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern with the Corner to Corner Stitch. If you are looking for a Beautiful Textured Crochet Blanket Pattern, to create a vintage looking pram or cot blanket then why not try the very easy Corner to Corner Stitch. The Diagonal blocks make a stunning effect.
I made this pram blanket for a friend and it was my first attempt at the C2C. I found I need the WRitten Pattern for the C2C but I have also included a handy video from @The Crochet Crowd.
 If like me you get a bit bored with bigger projects, this is perfect. As when you get halfway you start decreasing the stitches and before you know it your finished the blanket.

Please READ through all this pattern before commencing. I have tried to write it out so it is easy if this is your first attempt at a Corner to Corner. 

Once you master the sides, and making the first blocks of the rows then the rest whips up really easily. Watch the video to see how to do this easy diagonal stitch.


To make my Vintage Style Baby Blanket 
I followed this Corner to Corner pattern here (I chose 1 main color,) 

FREE written Crochet Pattern for the Corner to Corner stitch
I used a 4.00mm hook 4 x 100 gram balls of Double Knit Yarn = worsted)

ch 6.
Row 1 (Right Side):
Dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch
turn {1 block made}
Row 2:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, (slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in ch-3 space of previous row
turn {2 blocks made}

Row 3:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row] twice; turn  {3 blocks made}
Row 4:
Ch 6, dc in 4th ch from hook and in next 2 ch, [(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row]3 times turn  {4 blocks made}.
Continue working like this, 5 blocks, 6 blocks, 7 blocks......keep increasing 1 block on each row until there are 34 blocks across (or as WIDE as you want the blanket to be) 

free crochet patterns-baby blanket-baby crochet patterns

When you have reached your desired length. to make rectangle you are ONLY going to increase on one side this is to make the width now stay the same and the length grow. 
Continue working with increasing 1 block ONLY on one side. At the width side we are not increasing, continue Increasing Right Side of Work by working the 6 chain. combination. 
when we get to the end of the round we will slip st across first 3 dc, {(slip st, ch 3, 3 dc) =DECREASE} all in next ch-3 space of previous row; 
work in blocks along to the end of work.  

Continue making increase until your happy with your length (I made 42 blocks length wise for Pram Blanket in Picture)
Now work in
decreasing
rows as follows: slip st across first 3 dc, * (slip st, ch 3,3 dc) all in next ch-3 space of previous row; repeat from *to last ch-3 space; slip st in last space;
turn
do NOT make any further blocks WORKING (slip stitch, chains 3dc) at EACH ends from now on, 

The work now get easier as you are decreasing at both sides now until
1 block remains. 
Fasten off.

Border: 
You can choose any border you like to finish off this blanket, 
Round 1
Join Yarn and Chain3. 
I worked in Double Crochet around the full width and length with 3DC in each corner. So I could thread Ribbon through the blanket. 
And the last round was
(SC, Dc in same stitch Chain3, skip 1) continue working this around, Fasten off and finish blanket 
As it is a Pram Blanket I like to wash first and block. 
then with Ribbon by threading through the posts of every second DC of previous round.
