Simple Stripes Crochet Baby Blanket

Hi friends,

I designed this Simple Stripes Crochet Baby Blanket for a sweet baby boy. It’s crocheted using simple stitches so it’s perfect for beginners as well as seasoned crocheters. Once you get the pattern going, you can binge on your favorite Netflix show while you stitch away. 🙂

I made this blanket with a lighter worsted weight yarn. You can use whatever weight yarn you would like – just adjust the hook to match the yarn. If you use a heavier weight yarn, you may want to start with fewer stitches in the first row unless you want your finished blanket to be larger.
