These crochet blanket patterns are quite easy to work up. Although I usually like to make smaller items, occasionally I get the urge to crochet a blanket! But I don't want to spend too long on it - hence the simplicity of my designs below!
Found some fab baby yarn - so decided to make a blankie!
Worked in rows of dc (UK tr) and with a simple edging, this little blanket would make a great gift.
You can vary the size of the blanket, too, and I tell you how at the start of the pattern.
Here's a fun blankie for baby with a pretty shell edging.
Crochet it with or without the stripe (see my pix of the stripeless version) from the bottom up using dc (or trebles, for UK pattern-readers.) I include all the row stitch-counts so you always know where you are, as we increase, increase, increase a bit more... then shape the two top parts of the heart with decreases!
Makes a lovely Valentine baby gift, or just an "I love you" gift at any time of year!
I'm now working on my third blanket design - again, very easy. This one is going to have four (or five?) bold colored stripes on it, and I have to decide if I want a border or not :)
