This Blanket Is Perfect as a Baby Shower Gift
This blanket is perfect for making as a shower gift. At the time, I used this one as a gift for my new nephew, and he still uses it three years later! I think that’s why making gifts is so much more rewarding. It is nice to see something being loved that much!
I also wanted to mention that you’ll love how easy this works up, and you’ll easily be able to change the colors too per the shower recipients taste/preferences. I can’t wait to see your creations.
I Used Big Twist Yarn for This Baby Blanket
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 of 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 as soon as I saw it in-store, I knew I needed it asap!
I also grabbed some other great colors (turquoise, snow, pigeon, and navy) so it would make for a colorful baby blanket.
Check out the fantastic colors below!
The quick and easy crochet blanket pattern is made up entirely of single & triple crochet stitches using a size J crochet hook (click the image below to check the hook out!) which creates a fantastic bumpy texture.
This blanket is extremely easy to crochet! Plus, the simplicity of only using two stitches makes it a great beginner blanket! I’ll link up a few tutorials below so you can go over the stitches in the design.
So, I bet you’re probably itching to get started, read on down to start on your very own striped crochet blanket!
Ever So Striped Free Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern
Skill Level: Beginner
- Big Twist Premium Yarn from Joann Fabric & Craft Store (this line was discontinued) or any worsted weight yarn. The big twist was a heavier worsted weight 4 yarn and i would consider it almost 5 so keep that in mind.
- The colors were Turquoise, Snow, Salmon, Pigeon & Navy (1 skein of each)
- Crochet Hook size J 6.00 MM
- Yarn needle
- sc = single crochet
- tr = triple crochet
- ch = chain
- st = stitch
- Gauge is approximately 5 stitches for every 2 inches
- Finished Size is approximately 27″ X 25″
- To make this blanket in different sizes just use a multiple chain of 2 then add 1 to whatever length you have chosen.
- Written in Standard US Terms
- I suggest weaving in ends as you go to avoid a big to-do at the end of your project.
- Add to Ravelry
