I’ve got the most fun, beginner friendly tutorial for you today, and it’s the perfect thing for every baby!
I’m loving that the trend right now is everything rainbow – it makes the unicorn fairy princess 5 year old inside me SO happy.
My son may be almost 1 already (where did that time go?) but he’s already loving his blanket – just look at the smile on that face. Heart. Melted.
PATTERNS I LOVE (& you should too)
If you’re a brand new beginner to crochet, make sure you check out the video tutorial below, it’ll help ya lots.
And if you crochet already, you’ll whiz through this blanket like a pro – you won’t believe how simple it is.
Let’s get going!
- Get the ad-free, large print, printable PDF pattern HERE.
- PIN this pattern to your Pinterest boards for later HERE.
- Add this pattern to your Ravelry queue HERE.
-Bernat Blanket Yarn in white and lemon lime (the baby blanket line), purple, blue, yellow, orange, and pink (the bernat blanket brights line) – you can also use just 1 full ball each of white and another color!
-P/Q 15mm crochet hook
-Large eye tapestry needle
My color sequence:
-Lemon Lime (green)
With your first color Ch 47, Sc in 2nd and across, Ch 1, turn (46)
Row 2: Sc across, Ch 1, turn (46)
Row 3-4: Sc across, Ch 1, turn (46)
Repeat from * until you’ve repeated the sequence above or have 48 rows (Basically make 2 rows of Sc in each color above & work the sequence twice!)
*Note: I carry my white yarn up the side of my blanket so that I don’t have as many ends to weave. I don’t carry my colors to avoid tangling because I’m using so many!
-Weave all colored ends
Row 49: Sc in each st around the perimeter of the blanket, work 3 Sc in each corner, sl st to join, finish off and weave ends
I hope you love your new baby blanket! What colors are you using? Comment below!
