The Orlit baby blanket is made using 6 balls of different colored yarn worked in a technique called ‘tapestry crochet’.

This blanket is worked entirely in single crochet and looks the same on both sides. Because of the type of pattern this is, there is no specified gauge required. The gauge I have listed is for creating a blanket that is 30”x24”, but you are welcome to use a larger hook or yarn to make a bigger blanket.

I’ve included a full color chart and a black and white chart, as well as instructions on how to use the charts.

I would recommend using six 100g DK balls of different colors to make this blanket.
