In need of a quick baby gift? Make this striped crochet baby blanket today with my easy crochet tutorial and you have a baby shower present in no time at all!
If you have been following along with me over on Instagram then you will know that I’ve been over sharing the making of this striped crochet baby blanket for a couple weeks now. While out of town I stopped at a Joann Fabrics and snatched up some Big Twist yarn in a beautiful salmon color! I have been eyeing it up online for quite some time along with some other great colors (turquoise, snow, pigeon and navy) to make a baby blanket.
The pattern is made up entirely of single & triple crochet stitches using a size J crochet hook which creates an amazing bumpy texture. Plus, the simplicity of only using two stitches makes it a great beginner pattern! I hope you enjoy this blanket and please read on down below for the full, FREE pattern.
