In need of a quick baby gift? Make this modern striped crochet baby blanket today with my easy crochet tutorial and you have a baby shower present in no time at all! Scroll on down to make this easy striped baby blanket today! I hope you enjoy this free crochet pattern. 🙂
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 easy crochet baby blanket pattern 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 so for that reason I decided to go with that and some other great colors (turquoise, snow, pigeon and navy) to make a colorful baby blanket.
The quick and easy crochet blanket 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 crochet blanket! I hope you enjoy this design and please read on down to learn how to crochet a striped blanket.
Happy Crochet Blanket Making!
