This blanket stitch crochet baby blanket pattern is my official last project of 2014 and first of 2015! If you are in need of a quick baby shower gift or blanket, then this blanket will be the perfect project! Scroll on down for the full, free crochet baby blanket pattern.
Hold two strands together at once!
This baby blanket using the blanket stitch is made by holding two strands of yarn together at the same time, which makes it extra cozy & warm for a new little one!
I used Lion Brand Baby Soft Yarn in Parfait which is made for cuddling up baby in! I suggest using any worsted weight yarn if you don’t have this one on hand. You can find a ton of suggestions on Amazon or take a peek inside your local craft store!

You will need only a few materials and basic crochet knowledge to complete this baby blanket pattern which makes it a perfect beginner crochet project! If you were having doubts then don’t because you can do this! 🙂

Make in any color!
Don’t you just love the way the blanket stitch looks? Plus, I love how the Parfait Print color is variegated and just hints of pink throughout this baby blanket. What a perfect color for a sweet baby girl! Can you imagine this in a soft mint green, or pastel blue? Any color would look perfect for a handmade crochet baby gift since the whole Baby Soft colorway is made just for baby apparel.
