Would you like to make a crochet baby blanket that looks stylish and fun? Try this spike stitch crochet blanket!

This pattern US crochet terms and the tutorial is in ENGLISH. However, I’ve ‘translated’ the US terms also to UK and Dutch crochet terms

You will learn how to:

  • Calculate how much yarn you need, several yarn suggestions
  • Create the perfect size blanket
  • Crochet a spike stitch
  • Make the crochet spike stitch
  • Keep the sides straight

You’ll need:

  • Cotton 4ply yarn
  • Hook 4 mm (US F, UK 8), hook 3.5 mm (US E, UK 9)
  • Scissors

Level:
* Beginners/ intermediate

Finished size:

  • 65 x 85 cm / 25 2/3 x 33.5 inch, baby blanket size
  • Help with how to make different sizes: a throw for the couch, a blanket for a Queen sized bed.
