Today I will show you my crochet baby blanket. Because I don’t have a baby, my model was my cat. He enjoyed it very much mostly because he loves to sleep on my crocheted items. Every time I’m taking a brake from crocheting I find him relaxing on my crochet projects.
The stitch it may look a little bit difficult at first, but with patience, after the first rows you will see it’s actually easy to crochet and is a simple crochet pattern. The pattern only uses the double crochet stitch, you just have to be careful not to miss a stitch.
This crochet baby blanket is one of my favorite pattern, it’s so beautiful, airy and it looks wonderful in any color you like. I think this crochet baby blanket is perfect for spring, summer and fall. Is the perfect gift for a baby shower.
The dimension of this crochet blanket is 91 cm length X 91 cm width (36 inches X 36 inches). I used cotton from my stash and a 2 mm hook, the pattern is very easy, perfect even if you are a beginner.
