This pattern is available for free.

Cuddly and cherished.

This free pattern makes the most out of Berroco Indigo, a soft and comforting recycled denim and cotton blend.

A super summer project for beginner and expert alike, this blanket has a repeating rhythm of stitches in the center surrounded by a simple seed stitch (you’ll have the pattern memorized in short order).

You’ll see instructions for two sizes. The baby blanket is just right for crib, car seat and stroller. Or upsize for a beachy throw or picnic blanket. Either way, it handles the washer and dryer happily.

But why do we really knit blankets? Well, they keep our babies warm and safe. Soon enough, the blankets become super hero capes. Then a protective play-fort roof. Then shared with family in the TV room. And maybe, just maybe, one will end up tucked into a pillowcase as your “baby” heads off to college. Time well spent.

(For bunny shown in photo, see our free pattern, Baby Bunny and Bunting. We knitted ours in Berroco Indigo left over from the blanket on a US 4 (3.5mm) needle. What a great baby gift - blankie and bunny together!)
