This pattern creates a delicate, modern baby blanket that will be cherished for generations. Simple stitches make this beautiful receiving blanket a great project for beginners. If you can single crochet you will have a handmade gift in no time!


This is an easy pattern that uses basic stitches; however, the yarn used is very fine and “fuzzy,” making it impossible to rip out your work to fix mistakes. Count your stitches carefully to avoid mistakes. This pattern can be adapted to be beginner friendly by using a different type of yarn that is easier to work with.

Finished Measurements

Blanket is 22” by 22”


Approximately 800 yards of a light weight (3) yarn

Sample was made using 1,5 skeins of Yarn Bee 44th Street in the color “ivory”

To complete the blanet, you will only use a total of 1.5 skeins of Yarn Bee 44th Street. However, because you are working the pattern with 2 strands held together, it is easier to get 2 skeins and use the leftovers for another project!
