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. 

This crochet stitch combination 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) 

Row 2: ch1, {1sc, 2dc} in base of ch1, * skip 2dc, {1sc, 2dc} in next sc,* rpt from * * to last 2dc and sc, skip 2dc, 1sc in last stitch. Turn.

Repeat Row 2 from here on in until you have reached the desired length. 

DO NOT Break Yarn and continue working into the border. 


Crochet Border Blanket Pattern: 

Rnd 1: ch3, and DC evenly along all 4 sides of the blanket,  making 3DCs in each corner. 

slip stitch to join into top of ch3 at start of the round.

(we will thread the ribbon through this round.)

Rnd 2: ch4 (counts as dc + 1 ), dc all in the base of chain4. skip next 2 sts, {work dc,ch1, dc} = v stitch made. 

Continue Round by working, skip next 2 sts, {work dc,ch1, dc}, slip into the middle ch1 of first v stitch you made, at the corners DO NOT skip any stitches.....{work dc,ch1, dc} in each of the 3 double crochets of previous rounds

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 nights sitting watching the TV, asked me to crochet him a blanket, one that he could handle himself as many of the shop bought blankets were very heavy to handle. He wanted it light weight but needed to be warm and cosy.

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 heard of it before) the Margarite stitch, daisy stitch, and star stitch.
