Beautiful Crochet Baby Blanket
If you are looking for a beautiful crochet baby blanket, you’ve come to the right place! This very easy crochet baby blanket is quick and simple to make. It’s a one-row repeat that looks stunning when complete. Plus, there’s a gorgeous border that adds a lovely finishing touch.
I decided to call this pattern “Beautiful Baby Blanket” because whenever I showed it to anyone, the first word out of their mouth was “beautiful!”
Beautiful Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern
This Beautiful Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern creates a reversible blanket that is approx. 33″ wide and 37″ high, which is ideal for a small crib blanket. However, you can easily make it any size you’d like (instructions for adjusting the size are included in the pattern).
I used a new yarn called Baby Cuddles by Loops & Threads. It was my first time making anything with this yarn and I am in love! It’s incredibly soft and snuggly, perfect for a crochet baby blanket. I found it very easy to work with. But you can substitute with any size 3 (light) yarn.
I do recommend sticking with size 3 (light) yarn for this pattern as using a thicker yarn may change the look, feel and size of the blanket as well as the amount of yarn required.
The pattern is made with simple stitches – single crochet and double crochet stitches, making it a very easy pattern. If you have any troubles though, there are diagrams and a full video tutorial.

Beautiful Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern Details
The pattern creates a blanket that is approx. 33” wide and 37” high with the border (approx. 30” wide and 34” high without the border).
Yarn: Any size 3 (light) yarn. You will need approx. 1,150 yds in total.
I used Baby Cuddles by Loops & Threads in the color “Apricot.” This yarn is size 3 (light), 70% acrylic and 30% polyamide. A skein is 315 yds / 288 m and 4 oz / 113 g. I used 4 skeins in total.
For the blanket body, I used 920 yds (2 & 3/4 skeins). For the blanket border, I used 230 yds (3/4 of a skein).
Crochet Hook Size: J/10 (5.75 mm)
Other Materials: yarn needle, scissors and a measuring tape.
This pattern is written for right-handed crochet using standard US terminology. If you’re more familiar with UK terms, here’s my US to UK Conversion Chart.
- ch = chain
- st = stitch
- sts = stitches
- sk = skip
- sl st = slip stitch
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- ch-2 space = chain 2 space
- V-st = (sc, ch 2, sc) in the same stitch or space
4” x 4” = 14 sts and 9 rows following the blanket body pattern (to make a gauge swatch: chain 29 and follow the blanket body pattern).
- Chains never count as stitches.
- This blanket is made from the chain row up. The number of starting chains determines the width and the number of rows determines the height. To adjust the width, make fewer or more starting chains in multiples of 6 + 5. To adjust the height, make fewer or more rows.

Beautiful Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern Instructions
Start: Chain 119.
For Row 1 (only) work into the back ridge loops.
Row 1: In the second chain from hook, sc. Sc in each ch across. (118 sts).
Row 2: Ch 3 and turn. In the first st (the st attached to the chain 3), make 2 dc in the same st. Sk the next 2 sts. In the next st, sc. *Sk the next 2 sts. In the next st, make 4 dc in the same st. Sk the next 2 sts. In the next st, sc.* Repeat from * to * across. (Your final st is a sc in the last st). (98 sts. Reminder: chains never count as sts).
Row 3: Ch 3 and turn. In the first st (the st attached to the chain 3), make 2 dc in the same st. Sk the next 2 sts. *In the space between the second and third dc sts from the previous row, sc. Sk the next 2 sts. In the next st (the top of the sc from the previous row), make 4 dc in the same st. Sk the next 2 sts.* Repeat from * to * across. (After your last “4 dc in the same st” there will be two skipped sts). In the space between the last dc and the ch 3 from the previous row, sc. (98 sts).
Row 4 and on: Repeat Row 3 until your work measures 34” high (approx. 79 rows) or your desired height. You can end the blanket body after any row. Once you’ve reached your desired height, do not fasten off. Begin blanket border.
Border Round 1: Ch 1. Do not turn.
Side (Down): Working down the side, sc evenly down, working into the chains and sc sts at the end of each row – not into the spaces.
Need help with where to work into? When you see a ch 3, work 1 sc into the top of the ch 3 and 1 sc into the bottom of the ch 3. When you see a sc, work 1 sc into that sc st. The exact stitch count doesn’t matter. The goal is to create an even number of sc sts down (and up the sides). You can work under 1 or 2 loops of the chains / sc sts – just ensure your working into the stitches (not into the space around the stitch).
First Corner: In the first ch along the bottom, make 3 sc into the same ch.
Bottom: Sc in each ch along the bottom until the last ch.
Second Corner: In the last ch along the bottom, make 3 sc in the same ch.
Side (Up): Working up the side, sc evenly up, working into the chains and sc sts at the end of each row – not into the spaces.
Third Corner: In the top of the first st along the top (the top of the first dc), make 3 sc in the same st.
Top: In the next st (the top of the next dc), sc. In the next st (the top of the first sc), make 2 sc in the same st. Sc in the next 4 sts (the tops of dc sts). *In the next st (the top of the next sc), make 2 sc in the same st. Sc in the next 4 sts (the tops of dc sts).* Repeat from * to * across the top until there is 1 st left.
Fourth Corner: In the last st (the top of the last sc), make 3 sc in the same st.
Sl st into the top of the first sc to join.
Border Round 2: Ch 2 and turn. Sk the first st. Dc in each st around except at the corners. At each corner (the middle st of the 3 sc sts made in each corner in the previous round) make 3 dc in the same st. After working all the way around, sl st into the top of the first dc made in the round to join.
For Border Rounds 3-6:
Special Stitch: V-st = (sc, ch 2, sc) in the same st or space.
Note: every time you make a ch 2, you’re creating a ch-2 sp that you will work into in the following round.
Border Round 3: Ch 1 and turn. Sk the first st. *In the next st, V-st. Sk the next st.* Repeat from * to * around except at corners. At each corner, you will be working into the tops of the 3 dc sts made in each corner in the previous round. As you approach the 3 dc corner sts, your st before may be a V-st or a skipped st. It doesn’t matter which. In each of the 3 dc corner sts, make a V-st. After working in each 3 dc corner sts, skip the next st and continue *In the next st, V-st. Sk the next st.* After working all the way around, sl st into the top of the first sc (from the first V-st) to join.
Border Round 4: Ch 1 and turn. In each ch-2 sp, V-st around except at corners. At each corner (the corner is the ch-2 space that is closest to the corner), (sc, ch 2, sc, ch 2, sc) in the same space. After working all the way around, sl st into the top of of the first sc (of the first V-st) to join.
Border Round 5: Ch 1 and turn. In each ch-2 sp, V-st around except at corners. At each corner, you will be working into the two ch-2 spaces created at each corner in the previous round. In both of the ch-2 spaces, (sc, ch 2, sc, ch 2, sc) in the same space. After working all the way around, sl st into the top of of the first sc (of the first V-st) to join.
Border Round 6: Ch 1 and turn. In each ch-2 sp, V-st around. Nothing special happens at the corners (make a V-st in the four ch-2 spaces made in each corner in the previous round). After working all the way around, sl st into the top of of the first sc (of the first V-st) to join.
Fasten off and weave in all loose ends.
And now you have a new beautiful blanket!
