Seed Stitch Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

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 Crochet 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.

The Yarn

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.

Washcloth:

  • 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.

    1. I’m not sure how much of the big ball I used, but it comes in the following measurement: 1263 yd. / 1154 m, I would recommend buying this much to ensure you don’t run out.

  1. Sorry, I meant to add that i wanted to know how many stitches I would need. I wasn’t sure if it would be a multiple of 2
    o a multiple of 3. I think this stitch is so easy and pretty with rows of a couple of different colors. However, I get bored if
    they are that long. Please help. I’ve been crocheting since I was 14 yrs. old, first taught by a Scottish lady next door and my
    first project were men’s knitted socks. I got okay with it and when married we lived in Saskatchewan which is cold and I made all his
    socks. However, Later I did blankets and since I’m now 91 and still crochet every day. I also make granny 18 row blanket for
    the animal shelter. PetSmart gives a blanket to anyone who buys a cat. Thank you for liistening.

    1. I believe you start off with a multiple of 2 for the chains. With that said, 84 is a multiple of both 2 and 3, so you can’t go wrong with that number. :)

  2. This is a lovely pattern for a baby blanket and glad to have the multiple for different sizes. Thank you.
    With reference to the comments from Dorothy Craik: What an inspiration Dorothy is to be crocheting still at 91 years old and doing some for charity too. Hope I will be doing the same at that age in 20 years. Continued happy crocheting Dorothy. ?

  3. I love this pattern. It will work out with a multiple of 3 + 2 if you want to customize your size. Thanks Rhelena, for sharing.
