Hand Crocheted Baby Blanket

Hand Crocheted Baby Blanket





I made this blanket for my friend who had a little boy back in May of 2010. I used 3 skeins of super soft baby yarn that was variegated in shades of blues and whites.

It was a very simple blanket, and I used a single row stitch for the entire thing (to make the blanket a little warmer for fall).

I trimmed the edges in solid blue to finish off the blanket! My friend and her baby were absolutely overjoyed to receive it.

This blanket ended up in an adorable crib, and is holding up very well, even with repeated washing and drying. This blanket is great for a beginner or more experienced crocheter, and is relatively quick to complete.

Time: About 3 weeks

Materials: 3 skeins of baby-soft blue yarn, 1 of solid blue yarn (for outside border)

Finished size: About 3 feet x 4 feet

Start: I started off with a row of 250 loops, and worked one row at a time. The finished product has approximately 200 rows.

Finish: After making the initial blanket, use a single stitch along the borders, with two stitches in each loop to make a tight, compact border.

Difficulty: This was an easy blanket to make for a beginner. You may want to experiment with the type of crochet stitch inside for a more colorful or unique pattern. Be sure to trim all edges or loose yarn pieces, or work them into the material, so there is nothing that can be caught or swallowed!
