This Bernat Baby Blanket crochet pattern works up quick and easy. It’s mindless and relaxing to work on, which makes it an ideal go-to pattern for gifting.
For some reason I have a difficult time finding stitch patterns that work with a super bulky yarn. I had a totally different stitch in mind for this yarn, but it didn’t look right at all, and so I went with the seed stitch instead. At first I wasn’t too sure, but as the blanket grew, so did my confidence. I hope you will like it too.
The seed stitch results in a very nice texture that you’ll enjoy showing off along with your little one. I chose a variegated yarn, but I can imagine a solid color would help to bring out the texture even more. I love the splashes of the color, but I find it takes away from the texture of the stitch.
Another beauty of this stitch is that you can work it up in a single color, or in as many stripes and blocks of colors as you like. Thus, you could easily turn this into a stashbuster, as long as you stick to the same yarn throughout.
This pattern is given here in a baby blanket size, but you can easily increase to any size want using this blanket sizing chart. To adjust the size, you would need to do a gauge swatch to help you do the math on how many chains to start with.
