Crochet Baby Boy Blanket Ideas
Looking for ideas for a crochet blanket pattern for a baby boy? You’ve come to the right place! Here you will find over 30 beautiful and easy crochet baby boy blanket patterns and tutorials.
Finding out the gender of a new baby is beyond exciting. Once I hear the news “It’s a boy!” I can’t wait to start crocheting a baby blanket for the new baby boy.
While you can make crochet baby blankets for both genders, there are times when you are searching specifically for a pattern that is well-suited for a boy. There are some stitches for baby blankets as well as some borders/edging that are more fitting for a boy’s blanket.
To help in your search, I’ve curated some of the very best crochet patterns that are wonderful blankets to make for baby boys. Any of these blanket patterns would make a perfect gift for a little boy.
Easy Baby Boy Crochet Blanket Patterns
Most of the patterns in this collection are easy crochet baby boy blankets. However, if you are brand-new to crochet and are wondering how to crochet a baby blanket, I recommend starting with a pattern that is aimed at absolute beginners.
Luckily, I have a detailed guide on How to Crochet a Baby Blanket for Beginners, which will show you exactly how to make the crochet baby blanket pattern for beginners (pictured above). This beginner baby blanket pattern is made with just basic stitches and includes step-by-step instructions and a video tutorial as well as a gold mine of resources for beginners.
Once you’ve mastered the basics of crochet, you should be well-equipped to make all of these blanket patterns listed below.
Crochet Baby Boy Blanket Colors
Popular baby boy crochet blanket colors include blues, greens and neutral colors. Baby blue and shades of light green are very common choices. Whites, beiges, greys and other neutral colors are also good options for a boy’s baby blanket.
Baby blankets are most often made with pastel colors. However, there are patterns where solid colors are used and the results can be stunning.
Baby Boy Crochet Blanket Borders/Edging
Crochet blanket borders are an essential part of a blanket. The edging helps the blanket body stay in place and also adds an elegant finish to a baby blanket.
In this collection of patterns (below), you will find beautiful borders and edging for a baby boy crochet blanket. Some ideas for a boy’s blanket border/edging include:
- Ribbed border – made by creating a number of chains and then single crocheting into the back loops and attaching the border to the blanket body all the way around (as seen in my Adorable Baby Blanket).
- Front/back post border – made by alternating front posts and back posts all the way around (as seen in my Charming Baby Blanket).
- Small shells/scallops – made by making five rounds of single crochet stitches followed by a final round of shells/scallops (as seen in my Classic Baby Blanket)
- Textured edging – alternating between single crochet and triple/treble crochet stitches (as seen in my Moss Stitch Baby Blanket).
