summer crochet baby blanket

This Summer crochet baby blanket it’s officially my favorite crochet baby blanket I’ve crocheted until now! I love it so much because it’s crocheted with my favorite crochet lace pattern, the first crochet lace stitches I’ve learned as a beginner many years ago. But for this Summer crochet baby blanket I’ve made this lace like a crochet granny square.

I love to crochet granny squares and crocheting this lace as a granny square is so much fun. And making this crochet granny square blanket for an adult or for a baby it will be a beautiful and unique gift especially for the warm weather.

What I like the most about this pattern is that is so easy to choose the size. If you want your project to be a crochet baby blanket size you just stop crocheting when you’ve reached the size you want, if you want a bigger size, a laphgan or even a queen bed size just continue crocheting. You don’t have to count the beginning chains, you don’t have to measure and calculate with how many chains you have to start, for that reason this crochet baby blanket is the perfect project. And the most good thing you don’t have to crochet that infinite first row, that I hate so much to do!

If you’re looking for an easy to crochet baby blanket this is the one. The pattern for crochet granny square lace is very easy to crochet but you have to count your stitches, because if you’ve missed one, well, we all know what happens. If I’ve succeeded to learn how to crochet this stitch as a beginner I’m sure you’ll succeed too. So grab your hook and your yarn and let’s get started!

 

The dimensions of my Summer crochet baby blanket are: 90 cm length x 90 cm width (35 inches x 35 inches),
For my Summer crochet baby blanket I’ve used:  400g of this 100% cotton yarn (8x 50g) and a 3.5 mm hook.

This is a very high quality cotton yarn.  The color chart includes plenty of gorgeous colors, you just have to decide what color you like and get started. Here you can buy this yarn: http://bit.ly/32kTefb

For my project I’ve used the Light Pink color.

Because I wanted to keep the nice wavy edges I’ve crocheted 3 rounds of single crochet for the edge. You can leave the edge with just one round, it will look very beautiful in this way too.

 

Summer crochet baby blanket

 

How to make the edge for Summer crochet baby blanket:

Round 1: ch1, sc in the same stitch, and continue crocheting sc in every stitch and for the ch spaces crochet 3 sc, then sl st to finish the round.

For the round 2 start with a ch, sc in the same stitch and continue crocheting sc in every stitch, when you reach the corners crochet 5 sc: 1 sc in first stitch crocheted in the corner of the previous round, 3 sc in the second stitch of the previous round and 1 sc in the last stitch of the previous round.

For the round 3 repeat the round 2, but for the corners crochet the sc this way: sc in every next 2 sc of the corner of the previous round, 2 sc in the 3rd stitch of the previous round and sc in every next 2 sc of the corner. So for each corner you have to have 6 sc.

Tie off and weave in the ends.

You can wash it by hand or in a washing machine at 30 degrees.

This Summer crochet baby blanket to look this beautiful it needs to be ironed! So if you’ve used the yarn I’ve recommended for this project you can iron the Summer crochet baby blanket. If you’ve used another yarn read the label for the instructions. But if you’re not sure just block it using your favorite method.
