Crochet Pattern: Striped Baby Blanket

This beautiful blanket is a great gift for a new baby. It's just under 4 feet long (46 inches), so it will last the baby well into their toddler and childhood years.

I made this blanket for my nephew and loved the pattern so much I decided to share it. I have not tried it with any other color combinations yet. If you do it with any different colors, I would love to see how it turns out.

Materials Needed

  • 7mm Crochet Hook
  • Scissors
  • Tapestry Needle
  • 6 colors of 4 Ply Baby Yarn (Caron Simply Soft or similar): You'll need 2 skeins of 2 colors, so this is 8 skeins of yarn total.

Finishing

  • Make sure to leave a long tail to weave in your ends. This blanket is going to a baby; they can't be expected to be gentle, and you want to ensure the afghan will last until they outgrow it.
  • Make sure to securely weave in all ends. Only cut a string when you are positive nothing will come undone.
