Easiest Crochet Baby Blanket / Afghan Pattern

I’m here again with a simple blanket tutorial. It’s very sweet, lacy blanket and perfect for even beginners.

It uses only basic stitches but comes out looking far more intricate. It’s easy to make and knowledge of the basic crochet stitches is all that’s required. This pattern includes repetitive stitch patterns and a simple border.

Size 4 yarn 420m
5.5mm hook
Tapestry Needle

Stitches used
Chain: ch
Double crochet: dc
Single Crochet: sc
Skip stitch: sk
Slip stitch: ss
Space: sp

When you see *( )** it means you repeat the instructions in between *( ) **. Where you see the word ​turn​ it means to turn your work clockwise and work back down the row. Blanket should measure 26inch square when finished. This pattern is done in multiples of 3 so you can make it bigger or smaller by adding or taking away 3 chains.

Row 1. ​ Ch80, into 5th ch from hook do 1dc, (sk2, 1dc,ch1,1dc into next st)* repeat to end.

Row 2. ​Ch3 and turn, 1dc into ch1, sp, ( 3dc into next ch1 sp)* repeat across doing 1dc into last ch1 sp, 1dc into top of ch3.

Row 3.​ Ch4 and turn, 1dc into first st, ( sk2 sts, 1dc,ch1,1dc into next st)* repeat to end doing 1dc,ch1,1dc into top of ch3.

Repeat row 2 and 3. ​Till it measures 22inches ending with a row 3.


Round 1.

First side.
Ch3 and turn, do 1dc into first st, ch2 and do 2dc into same sp, 1dc into next ch1 sp, do 1dc into each dc st and 1dc into each ch1 sp, do 2dc,ch2.2dc into top of ch3.

  1. I am a beginner and I do so very much appreciate your tutorials. My question is about making this blanket bigger. You say your tutorial is for 29 inch finished blanket. You had left over yarn from what you described using. What size could I make and not run out of yarn and how do I make it bigger. Thank you

  2. I am a beginner, I am not sure if I am making contact with you to get my questions about making blanket bigger than your tutorial shows. Also can I use pound of love 16 oz 1020 yds for this pattern.

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

  4. Just made a sample – am looking forward to making this pattern. Am going to try using 2 strands – Baby Bee Cozy Cutesy yarn (Sunkisses) with a baby weight solid white. Looking forward to seeing how it comes out!
