Easy Crochet Baby Blanket

This is a fun and easy crochet baby blanket tutorial using 2 big balls of Bernat Baby Yarn in a bulky, chenille type yarn making it super soft and spongy but still light weight. A great texture for babies and this blanket is beginner friendly with all the steps shown for this simple crocheted blanket.

Make sure you get the big ball of yarn, its 300g, 10.5 oz, 258 yards, 234 m

11.5 mm crochet hook or P hook

tie off end and weave in ends.

IF YOU WANT TO MAKE IT LARGER… make the foundation chain as long as you like, just make sure it is a multiple of 6.

Final blanket measure about 31 x 35.

Melanie, I love this baby blanket pattern. Thank you for sharing a simple beginner pattern. I will be making more in the future. How long of a foundation chain would I need to make a lap quilt? Also how much yarn should I get? Thanks --- Becky Champion

Melanie, Love your crocheting tutorials. I'm a beginner, and I crocheted this beautiful baby blanket. Thanks to you, it is beautiful. I have a question about a beginner red ruffled scarf I was crocheting. I put it away for a while and then couldn't find the written pattern. Could you please try to send it to me? At jodyrs@yahoo.com

Thank You so much, Jody Smith
