Crochet baby blanket- free pattern

Hello my girls, today I will show you my baby blanket. Because I don’t have a baby, my model was my cat. He enjoyed it very much mostly because he loves to sleep on my crochet items.

The dimension of the blanket is 91 cm length X 91 cm width (36 inches X 36 inches). I used cotton from my stash and a 2 mm hook, the pattern is very easy, perfect even if you are a beginner.

I hope you like the color because I love it and I think it will fit for both sex: girl or boy. You can use this pattern to crochet any kind of blanket, not just a baby blanket, you just have to work until you reach the size you need.

The blanket sizing:

Baby blanket: 91 cm x 91 cm / 36″x 36″;

Toddler blanket: 107 cm x 132 cm / 42″x 52″;

Lapghan: 91 cm x 122 cm / 36″x 48″;

Throw blanket: 132 cm x 152 cm / 52″x 60″;

Twin bed: 150 cm x 216 cm / 59″x 85″;

Full/ queen: 229 cm x 229 cm/ 90″x 90″;

King: 274 cm x 229 cm/ 108″x 90″.

You will need:

280 g cotton (use your favorite brand);

2 mm hook (or what hook size is indicated on the label);



ch= chain;

sc= single crochet;

dc= double crochet;

dc2tog= double crochet 2 together;

dc 3 tog = double crochet 3 together

  1. Hi, this blanket is beautiful, and I’m excited to make it in pink for the baby girl my cousin is expecting. I have a question about your yarn, as I am in the US. What “weight” is your yarn? It looks like maybe a 3/DK weight? Or is it closer to a 4/Worsted? Thanks!

    1. My yarn is very thin, I think is fingering weight (in US terms), I don’t have the label of this kind of yarn (and I have a large quantity), so I don’t know for sure, but it looks beautiful with a 2mm hook so I think is lace or super fine yarn.

  2. Thank you for this gorgeous pattern. My eldest daughter announced yesterday that my first grandchild is a little girl and this blanket is going to make a perfect gift. And the colour is perfect as they want grey and other neutral colours 😁

    1. Congratulation! I’m very happy you choose my pattern for your grandchild blanket, I think grey is perfect for a baby blanket.

  3. How can this be made into a round tablecloth pattern? I’ve been searching for some time for a pattern that I like instantly and this is it.

  4. Not sure if the original stitch count is off for the 302 count. But I have tried this pattern for 3 days now and I have never had to rip out a project more time in the first row in my life. Love the look but the pattern is a headache, Maybe just me but I gave up.

    1. Yes my blanket has 302 chains (my yarn was very thin). I’m very sorry you needed to rip it out so many times. I posted the chart/diagram if that is more helpful for you, you will find it under the video tutorial.

  5. Hello! I really like this pattern, and I have now reached the edging. I am wondering how many SC I should make on the side? Where I have made ch4 and DC. I was thinking about making 2sc in each “space” but should I also make one in each of the parts where the dc meets the chain? Does it make sense?

    1. Hello, I’m usually making 1 sc for each ch and 1 sc for each dc, so if I have 2 ch I’m making 2 sc, and if I have 7 dc (for example) I’m making 7 sc. I didn’t make a sc in the parts where the dc meets the ch.

  6. I have a question about row 7.
    Row 7: 4 ch, * 9 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc in the space of 2 ch of previous row, 2 ch, dc 2 tog, 3 dc, dc 2 tog*, repeat *-*, 1 dc in space of 4 ch of previous row.
    Should there be 2 ch after dc 2 tog, before the repeat?

  7. I’m having a hard time figuring out where I’ve gone wrong with the 8th row. It looks right until I get to the second chain 2, and it gets wonky. Are we to skip some stitches that aren’t mentioned in the above directions? I was able to look at the pictures for the other rows, but now that I’m starting back at row 2 on top of row 7 I don’t have any pictures to go by. I love this pattern and would love to be able to finish it. Thank you!!

    1. Hello, you start the 8th row making 4 ch, then you make dc2tog in the first 2 dc of the previous row, 1dc, dc2tog and continue as the row 2 says. I hope is helpful for you, if not write to me.

  8. I really want to make this in autumn colours but I’m terrible at following patterns.
    Do you know if anyone has down a video tutorial similar to this? It’s so pretty. 😻

  9. Lovely blanket! I’m trying to make it myself but I’m having trouble getting it started. I can’t get row one to come out correctly. Would you please explain the beginning of it? The instructions say to crochet into the third chain from the hook, but in the picture it looks like there are 5 or 6 chains before the first DC in the 9 DC set.

    1. Thank you. So after you make the chain row, you start the first row making 4 chains, but you don’t count them, you count 3 chains from the chain row and make the dc in the 3rd ch of the chain row, so you actually make the dc in 8th ch from the hook. I hope I explained it well 🙂

  10. I have a lot of yarn in my stash which has little bobbles on it – it was left to me by a friend who sadly passed 15years ago and I can never think what to do with it. Do you think the “bobbles” would detract from the leaf pattern or enhance it? I have it in many pastel shades.
    Thank you for sharing your pattern – it may well be a Christmas present or two!

    1. I’m not sure, but you can make 23+3 chain and work for 7 row of the pattern and then see how much cm or inch measure and then calculate how much you need for your desired size.

    2. I’m currently making a baby blanket with sport weight. I started with 164 ch. That is 7 multiples of 23 + 3 more ch. So far it appears it will be more like 38 inches. I plan on putting a flannel backing on it when I’m finished. Love the pattern! Thank you turcoaz cu vanilie.

      1. You’re welcome. I’m very happy you love this pattern and you choose another yarn, I’m sure it will look beautiful.

  11. This is very beautiful. I am thinking about making a queen size afghan for my son and his wife for Christmas, I think this will work nicely. Thank you very much for putting the pattern up. 🙂
