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.
The pattern is based on the crochet seed stitch with a bit of lace worked into every third row. Then it’s finished with a pretty picot edging. And it’s the perfect blanket for both baby boys and girls.
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.

- 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.

For the washcloth I used Bernat Handicrafter cotton yarn and an H – 5.00mm hook. I started off with 16 chains and the finished measurement came out to 7″ square. It’s the perfect size for a baby washcloth or dishcloth.
