Quick and Easy Crochet Baby Blanket

Hi friends,

I found this great pattern for a quick crochet blanket at Crochet Dreamz. It can be stitched up in about 3 hours if you use super bulky (6) yarn.

I had this fun Dew Drops Baby Bee Lots of Dots yarn that I picked up on clearance from Hobby Lobby. This particular color way is discontinued, but there are still several others available. It is a bulky (5) weight yarn.

The size of the blanket can be adjusted by changing the length of the beginning chain. The pattern calls for the chain to be in multiples of 3 + 3 more chains. My blanket starting chain was 99 stitches (96 + 3 more), then I followed the pattern as written.

Here’s a close up of the blanket. It’s a little hard to see the pattern due to the type of yarn I used. If you click over to the free pattern here, you can really see how pretty it is in the stripes with blanket yarn.

I crocheted my blanket using an N/10mm hook. I used about 6 skeins (3.5 ounce/110 yards) of Dew Drops Baby Bee Lots of Dots yarn. The finished size of my blanket is about 33-inches by 32-inches.

This is a great pattern if you need a gift in a hurry – or if you want a quick and easy pattern to make blankets for donating.

Happy stitching!

Anita
