What Crochet Stitch Should I Use for a Baby Blanket?
When looking for a crochet pattern for baby blankets, the first thing that you should look for is what stitches are in the design. Most baby blankets, in my opinion, need to use simple stitches or be made with a single stitch so little fingers can’t slip through the stitches.
I’ll link up a few crochet stitch videos below so you can decide for yourself and pick one at your skill level. Watch now.
The Best Yarn to Use for Baby Blankets
Another thing to keep an eye out for when crocheting a baby blanket is what type of yarn is in the crochet pattern. I prefer to use acrylic yarn because that way, it is durable and washable. Also, I suggest staying away from wool for these baby blankets because a little one’s skin can be sensitive.
Even if a pattern calls for wool, it is easy to substitute out with something that will be gentler against a newborn’s skin. I suggest any yarn that is cozy and soft as a must use when making a baby’s blanket. It is also good to consider the yarn weight when looking for the perfect yarn.
A bulky six yarn works up fast but is thicker and heavier than a worsted weight. I prefer the bulky yarn blankets since I live in PA and it is cold for a lot of the year.
