Quick and Easy Crochet Baby Blanket

Quick and Easy Crochet Baby Blanket

After making the baby three different sized hats and two lots of matching booties, I was searching Ravelry to decide what to create next. I also had several small balls of yarn that needed using up – so I opted for a simple baby blanket that I could sit back and work on while attempting to find something interesting to watch on TV.

The pattern is loosely based on one double crochet and two trebles into one stitch. I worked with a variety of complimentary colours in double knitting, using a 5mm hook, so the work grew quickly. The finished object took me a week to complete, including adding a pretty shell stitch border in purple, made with six trebles into one chain, with slip-stitches in the middle.

My baby blanket is loosely based on a pattern I found on Crochet Pattern Central – Bubbles Baby Blanket – by Deneen St Amour – so thank you to her for the inspiration.
