This crochet baby blanket is crocheted in a nice solid stitch using a worsted weight yarn. It’s great for covering the little ones up while sleeping, or for playing on the floor as you see pictured.

For this blanket, I chose a grey, blue and white color combination for a little boy. But for a girl you could substitute a light pink for the blue and have it look just as pretty as this one.

And since there is no stitch pattern, you can crochet this to any size you want; one for baby and one for yourself!

Stitches Used

For this baby blanket crochet pattern I used the extended single crochet stitch. The stitch is not only super easy to make, but it looks nice on both sides of the fabric when worked in rows as done here.
