baby blanket by croby patterns

The best gifts are handmade gifts. So many new moms, grandmas, aunts or close family friends decide to make handmade blankets, baby booties, onesies… usually, before the child is born. Something special that will bring back unique memories of happiness when they see the item years after.

I am so happy to finally share my first crochet baby blanket pattern and video tutorial. And it’s super beginner friendly too. I will break it down into a step-by-step tutorial where you will learn basic stitches needed to finish this blanket.

If you will have a hard time following a written pattern that you can find below, or if you are a total beginner, click on the video tutorial. It will help you understand what is a foundation chain, how to work in rows, how to make a real crochet stitch called double crochet stitch and how to switch from one color to another. Once you’re there subscribe to my channel for more new fun stuff to come.

There are a couple of things you might need before you start. First off, some yarn. I am using 100% cotton Aran weight yarn in four different colors; beige, yellow, orange and red. If the size of your blanket matters to you and if you would like to achieve exactly the same size that I did, please use the recommended yarn weight for this pattern. If you are not sure what Aran weight yarn is, please read more about it HERE or ask for help in your local yarn store.

You will also need 4 mm or G/6 crochet hook. You can read more about crochet hooks and how to use them HERE. You will also need some scissors a yarn needle and a measuring tape.
