Crochet Ridged Color Block Baby Blanket

Hi friends,

Do you remember my Crochet Bobble Color Block Baby Blanket pattern from this post? It was the first of two blankets I was making for my sister’s friend who will soon have twin grandbabies! This is the second one I designed for her using the same colors but a different pattern.

I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in White, Light Gray, and Sage with an H/5mm hook to stitch up my blanket. The finished blanket measures about 29 by 30 inches. You can find the pattern below and I’ve included a link to a free PDF for easy printing.

Border:

Begin working in Rounds. Do not turn at the end of each round.

Round 1: ch 1. sc crochet evenly around, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with ss to first sc. Do not turn.

Rounds 2-3: ch 1. sc in blo of each stitch around, working 3 sc in each corner. Join with ss to first sc.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

This pattern works up quickly and you can easily adjust the size you want to make your blanket. You can make it in color blocks, stripes, or even one color. What color will you make your blanket
