Crochet Pattern: Striped Baby Boy 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.

Directions:

With Color 1 (Tan #1): Chain 100

Row 1: In 3rd chain from hook half double crochet, half double crochet to the end

Rows 2-16: chain 2, half double crochet in each stitch

Rows 115-130: chain 2, half double crochet in each stitch. Fasten off at the end

Weave in the ends.

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.
