The finished blanket using a 5mm crochet hook and DK yarn measures approx 29’’x24’’ - designed for newborn/young baby. The pattern is made up of 2 sections- Tulip Stitch Section and Block Section, which means there’s enough variation to keep interest but it’s repetitive enough that it’s a relaxing project to make! The tulip stitch adds a slight level of challenge for a beginner wishing to extend their skills, or an intermediate/advanced crocheter looking for a change of pace.

For this pattern, you will need:

  • 5mm hook
  • DK acrylic yarn - 1 skein (100g approx) of each in grey, lime/green and pink (or colours of your choosing)
  • tapestry needle
  • scissors

You will need to be familiar with the terms (US terminology):
-Single Crochet

  • Chain
  • Half Double Crochet
  • Double Crochet
  • Yarn Over
  • Tulip Stitch/ 5DC in the same stitch (although this has been explained in the pattern)
  • Fasten Off
  • Colour Changes
  • Space
  • Stitches

The Gauge is not important on this project, just keep a consistent tension throughout.

It’s an ideal project for an experienced beginner upwards and a great gift idea for baby showers or christenings.

The pattern is 4.5 pages long and includes colour photos.
