Another simple design added to my baby blanket collection. This crocheted baby blanket is made by multi-color cakes yarn, ribbed texture and simple crochet stitches. So it is a quick and easy crochet project for a cute gift.
Materials: ( I used )
5mm crochet hook
Light weight/DK yarn: self-striping cakes and white yarn ( about 400 gr for the sample/ 150 gr or 349 yds per skein )
( Check out at my Yarn shop – free worldwide shipping )
If you don’t crochet, you can buy this blanket on my Etsy shop 🙂
Note: I used chainless starting dc for every first dc of each round instead of ch 3. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2, dc into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc ). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc for every first dc of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂
- You can use any hook size for this crochet candy line baby blanket pattern, just choose a yarn type that matches.
- The pattern is a multiple of 4+3 ( just in case you want to make a different size afghan )
- Finished crochet project: 30 x 30 inches ( stroller size )
