I love designing crochet blankets like this Stoney Pebbles Crochet Baby Blanket! It really is my weakness! If you have ever checked out my crochet blanket section you will know what I mean! I can’t help myself! 🙂 Read on down to find the full, FREE pattern or purchase an inexpensive Ad-Free PDF for $2.99 “here“.
The main reason I love to crochet blankets is it so easy to work back and forth in a repetitive motion without much thought. Which means a huge project with minimal effort. That is my cup of tea! (Or coffee!) You have to think the same thing right?
When the idea first came to me for this blanket I knew that I wanted to use Lion Brand Heartland Yarn because it is extremely soft and comes in such beautiful earthy colors. I have used it to design some items in the past like my “Half & Half Boot Cuffs“ and “Here is Autumn Hat“ so I knew this yarn would be the perfect fit for a cozy baby blanket! Have you used it for anything? If not you should definitely give it a try!
When I was designing this blanket I used only single crochets and half double crochets! That’s it! The half double crochets are worked a little different than you may be used to but that is what gives this blanket the stoney pebble like look. I will explain how to work these special half double crochets up in the abbreviation section. 🙂
To finish up this fun blanket I did one row of single crochet’s along to the border to give it a clean finished look. Wallah! A finished baby blanket! Now that you know what is needed for this blanket I think you will be ready to try out this blanket pattern!

- Fasten off yarn after last row and weave in loose ends throughout with a yarn needle.

Make sure to do 3 sc’s in each corner st to get a clean finished look.
