The main reason I love quick and easy blanket patterns is that I can work back and forth in a repetitive motion without much thought to the stitches. Simple designs mean a project with minimal effort. That is my cup of tea! (Or coffee!) Do you think the same thing?
I can’t wait for you try to this pattern!
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! This blanket would be cute either as a baby girl crochet blanket or a baby boy crochet blanket!

Foundation Row: Ch 60
Row 1: Starting in the 2nd ch from the hook, sc, sc in each ch across, turn. (59)
Row 2: Ch 1, starting in first st, sc, sc in each st across, turn. (59)
Row 3: Ch 1, starting with the first st, sc, *sphdc in next stitch, sc in next stitch, repeat from * across, turn. (59)
Row 4-6: repeat row 2
Row 7 – ?: repeat row 3-6 for pattern to desired length (I did 50 rows)
Fasten off yarn after the last row and weave in loose ends throughout with a yarn needle. If you wish to do a border as I have shown, don’t fasten off yarn and do a simple sc border along the outside edge of the blanket working the sc evenly along. Make sure to do three sc’s in each corner st to get a clean finished look.
