EASY and ADORABLE baby blanket. This will be your new “go to” baby blanket pattern. Perfect for those new to crochet or those who have crocheted for 50 years.

Mix up the colors for a boy or a girl. Or for the mom-to-be who likes surprises and didn’t find out the sex, make it in unisex colors.

Please note, this is a crochet pattern, not a finished blanket.

TIME SAVER: Pattern is written to avoid having to cut yarn at each color change, therefore, less ends to work in. Do not fear the stripes!

OPTIONS: This pattern has two different edging options; one solid, one matching the pattern stripe. Also, instructions are provided to resize the pattern for either different weight yarns or to make it bigger or smaller. This adorable pattern can be made into so many items. Make a lapghan, a larger throw, or a small cuddle blanket. Use a heavy yarn and large hook, edge with just a row of sc and make a cozy rug. Or with thinner yarn and smaller hook, make an assortment of placemats. Use your imagination and creativity to adjust the basic pattern to be whatever you want it to be. Have fun!


NOTES: Pattern is written using standard US stitches.

GAUGE: Exact gauge is not essential. If your gauge is close to stated gauge, then your finished blanket will be close to stated finished size. If you don’t have similar gauge or you want to adjust the size of the blanket, please see instructions at the end of the pattern.
