Honeycomb Baby Blanket and Matching Hat, My New Crochet Pattern

Like many other people across the USA and around the world, I've been practicing self-isolation and social distancing for four weeks now. These are challenging times for all of us, and staying at home to protect not only ourselves but others as well is the best thing to do right now! 

But what do you do when you suddenly have so much time on your hands?

Well, I've been crocheting! 

Most recently I made a baby blanket and a matching hat (in three sizes). This project was a lot of fun to work on! 

The textured fabric of the blanket and hat, soft and puffy, looks and feels so luxurious! And mind you, this baby set is made from affordable Pound of Love yarn by Lion Brand

Thank you!

Actually, for this project you will need two Pounds of Love, as this stitch is definitely a yarn eater!  

The finished size of my blanket is 46 by 38 inches. I used hook size H (5 mm).

I used a simple edging with scallops not to take away from the beauty of the main stitch. I think it worked well! 

This is what the main stitch looks like on the wrong side! Also very pretty! 

The baby hat comes in three sizes - newborn, 0-6 months, and 6-12 months.

The patterns are available in my Etsy and Ravelry shops! The blanket and hat patterns can be purchased separately, on as a set (on Etsy only) for a lower, bundle price. 

Stay safe and healthy, and enjoy some crochet!


  1. Olga, all of your items are so lovley. When you create a pattern do you use stitch books to create the pattern? Do you start with a stitch and build a pattern around it, or do you have an idea and fit it with the stitch?

  2. You made such a beautiful baby set and it'll look pretty on a baby. I like that crochet stitch.
