Crocheted Baby Blanket

Made for a friend who recently gave birth to her first child, a beautiful baby boy.


This is a giant granny square with many rounds. A very simple design as I’m still getting back into the “groove” of crocheting.  Also, I think its a good multi season blanket. The holes in the pattern will allow for plenty of circulation and the weight of this yarn will retain some warmth. A solid design with this yarn would’ve been far too heavy for anything but the dead of winter.


I tried to capture the plushness and softness of the yarn in this picture. Incredibly perfect for something a baby with delicate skin will cuddle up with.


Trying to be mindful of scraps I used up the remaining lengths of the yarn by alternating the 3 colors in the scalloped edging. This worked well and saved me from having to buy a few more rolls of this pricey yarn.


The yarn used: Lion Brand Farm Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton. Obviously not in the color shown. The colors used for this blanket are Oatmeal (the creamy white), Dusty Blue (a smokey baby blue), and Spice (just like a pumpkin).
