Simple Crochet Baby Blanket

Simple Crochet Baby Blanket


A simple design yet creates a beautiful sophisticated blanket! Very simple and beginner friendly.

This crochet baby blanket features the double crochet stitch. The pattern is a row of double crochets then a row of double crochets that cross over each other. This creates a gorgeous texture that makes the blanket look more complicated than it is!

This blanket works up fast and can easily be made smaller or larger by increasing or decreasing the amount of starting chains.

A very fun simple project that you will enjoy making!

The finished blanket measures 35″ X 35″.

  1. LOVE these colors. Can you please share what yarn/ colors you used here?
    Making this now with soft gray, medium blue, honey and cream.

    • Thank you. I’m so sorry but I don’t remember what brand I used. When I made the blanket I used yarn that I had left from other projects so I am not sure what the brand/color names are. This is one of the first patterns I wrote so I try now to make sure I list the brand/colors when writing new patterns. Your colors sound lovely!
