This baby blanket is very simple to make, and someone who knows how to crochet dc, sc, and ch could probably make it without a pattern.
Despite its plainness, this blanket looks delicate and is very nice to touch. The yarn that I used (Beehive Baby Sport by Patons, Natural Girl) worked very well for this project. For one thing, it’s a blend of acrylic and nylon, which is super soft. In addition to that, the variegated yarn gave this simple pattern a finer look.
Finished size: 33 by 27 inches
Patons’ Beehive Baby Sport, Natural Girl, about 1400 yards
Hook E/4 (though the recommended hook for this yarn is F/5, but I prefer smaller size hooks for tighter and neater looking stitches)
I started with ch 141.
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, dc in each ch across.
Row 2: ch 3, turn, dc in next dc, *ch 1, skip next dc, dc in next dc* across, dc in turning ch.
Row 3: ch 3, turn, dc in next dc, *dc in next ch, dc in next dc* across, dc in turning ch.
Repeat Row 2 – Row 3 until the blanket is about 32 inches long.
Trim is quite simple, it’s only one round of double crochets: 4 dc in corner spaces, and 2 dc in ends of rows.
