Here is my seed stitch baby blanket to match this seed stitch baby hat. I crocheted both patterns up in a solid color, but it would look super awesome in some baby stripes as well.
In addition to a baby blanket, I also included a small washcloth pattern to at the end to go with the blanket. I used a worsted weight cotton, but if you’re going to use it for a baby, I would choose a soft baby cotton.
The Stitch Pattern
The pattern is based on the crochet seed stitch with a bit of lace worked into every third row. The seed stitch is the single crochet and the double crochet worked together into a stitch. Then a stitch is skipped to maintain the stitch count. I worked the seed stitch for two rows followed by a row with single crochets and chain spaces.
Then it’s finished with a pretty picot edging. And it’s the perfect blanket for both baby boys and girls.
I chose a baby yarn called Snuggly Wuggly Big! by Loops and Threads. It’s a #3 acrylic baby yarn. Other baby yarns in the same weight will work just as well.
Lion Brand Ice Cream and Bernat Baby Sport are two good alternatives.

Special Stitch Instructions
- Picot: Ch 2, sl st in top of dc.
- On round 5, you need to skip an extra stitch at the end in order to maintain a correct stitch count.
- Rows 1 and 2 are at an uneven number. Starting at row 3 all the way up to the last row you will have an even stitch number. This is brought back to an uneven number at the very last row by doing a decrease.
