This crochet Textured Baby Blanket it’s a fast and simple crochet pattern to make and a perfect way to learn new stitches. This free pattern it’s perfect if you are looking for a textured crochet baby blanket that looks beautiful, elegant and special. This crochet textured baby blanket it’s perfect as a gift for a baby shower, for Christmas or to crochet it for your baby.

For this crochet baby blanket you have to know how to crochet the Alpine stitch and the Star stitch. I think this two stitches are perfect for blankets, they create a solid fabric with a really good drape and the result is a strong, durable fabric which is ideal for crocheting baby blankets. And the textured pattern it will hold up very well in the washing process.

So this pattern is not for you if you want to crochet a baby blanket in 3 hours, but it’s definitely the perfect project if you are looking to crochet a sophisticated and unique baby blanket! Plus this is the perfect way to learn how to crochet these two beautiful stitches.

The dimensions of my Textured baby blanket are: 80 cm length x  70cm width (31.5 inches x 27.5 inches).

For my Textured baby blanket I’ve used 400 g (8 x 50 g) cotton yarn and a 3,5 mm crochet 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/3lIuDvx

Round 1: ch1, sc in the same stitch, and continue crocheting sc in every stitch (or a sc for ever row and 3 sc for the corners), 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 each next 2 sc of the corner of the previous round, 2 sc in the 3rd stitch of the previous round and sc in each 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. 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.
