This Easy Baby Blanket crochet pattern will make a receiving size baby blanket (36″x36″).  You can make a blanket any size by using multiples of 6.

The pattern repeat is: HDC, HDC, Ch1, skip 1 stitch, HDC, HDC.

Each row begins with a Ch1.  This Ch1 makes a nice straight edge, but does not count as a stitch.

Note:

This pattern uses the Foundation Half Double Crochet (FHDC) stitch.  If you are unfamiliar with this stitch, I have created a detailed, photo tutorial here.

Repeat Rows 2-13 until you have the length you want.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Begin Border.



Border Row 1: (Color A) Start in the middle of one of the sides.  SC evenly around each side of the blanket.  Each corner should have (SC, CH3, SC).  This will give a nice square corner.  Join with a slip stitch.

Border Row 2-3: (Color D)HDC in each stitch around.  Each corner should have (HDC, CH3, HDC).  Join with a slip stitch.

Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Alternative Color Scheme

I wanted to see how this blanket looked without the stripes.  Honestly?  I’m in love with both ways.  The non-striped version took less than a weekend to complete and of course less ends to weave in.  The colors for the non-stripped version are:

Color A – Caron Jumbo Floral Ombre (I used almost the entire skein)

Color B – Red Heart Super Saver White (I used the leftover from above)

Color C – Caron One Pound Light Terracotta (I used less than 1/4 of the skein)

Using the pattern above:

Rows 1-9: Color A

Repeat Rows 2-9 until you have the length you want.


Border Row 1: (Color B) Start in the middle of one of the sides.  SC evenly around each side of the blanket.  Each corner should have (SC, CH3, SC).  This will give a nice square corner.  Join with a slip stitch.

Border Row 2-3: (Color C)HDC in each stitch around.  Each corner should have (HDC, CH3, HDC).  Join with a slip stitch.

The same pattern, two looks.  Which one is your favorite?
