Why AllFreeCrochet Loves this Afghan

For us at AllFreeCrochet, crochet baby blankets are always at the top of our to-make list. You can make them with a simple and repetitive pattern, as in this crochet baby blanket, for a calming effect, or you can amp up the difficulty a bit and try out some new stitch designs every few rows or so. The key to this project is its simplicity - it's toned down and subtle without being at all boring. The pattern uses the same stitch technique throughout, with a skipped stitch in between each one, so it's very easy to remember. This way, you don't have to keep referring to a pattern as you work your way through the project - a small perk that, we think, saves a lot of time in the long run. Aside from the simple stitch pattern, though, we really just love the colors of this crochet baby blanket. The cool blue and the soft tan just reminds us of a calming shoreline - and who doesn't love a little bit of relaxation?

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

This project has been revised, so the designer basically decided to just make a new post. Wise decision. The original yarn has been discontinued so other suggestions have been included, some commenters apparently mixed up this project with a similar one, and the wording has changed from the original pattern. Good thing the nice repetitive stitch sequence remains! Thats the real calming part of this project. Check out that label download, too!

Wow this Calming Crochet Baby Blanket is so easy to make and I love the colors she used that can be used for anyone. I think any new mom would love having this one. I like to make and store baby afghans, you never know when your going to need one. So I'll be making a few of these to keep on hand. I just love the ease of this pattern, it's well written and easy to follow. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet baby blanket pattern.

This is such a peaceful and serene baby blanket. Not only is it beautiful to look at, there appears to be a lot of texture present. Any baby will be lucky to own this.

I can appreciate this calming crochet baby blanket. There are less than 4 rows of crochet instructions to complete this project. Probably the hardest part is the changing of the yarn colors. At any rate, this project is a keeper for sure.

I'm sure mommy will love this Calming Crochet Baby Blanket if she receives something like this on her baby shower. Its being handcrafted specially for baby makes it more special. The colors used are also unique, not the usual pink, blue, or yellow baby colors.

The pattern for the Calming crochet baby blanket is easily found by clicking the get crochet pattern button link in this post. I was then taken to the website call Little Monkeys Crochet. The name of the blanket that they show is Sweet Ocean Breeze baby blanket but dont get confused because they are both the same.

can't make it because the pattern isn't there.??????

Hi lgrammy, If you click the link above that says "Click here for crochet pattern" - it's underneath the intro text and near the main photo - you'll be taken to the blogger's site where the pattern is listed if you scroll down just a bit. It's not a super long pattern because a lot of it repeats, so maybe you just missed it. ) Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

My Grandmother taught me this stitch when I was about 15 yrs. old but she called it the 'Bone' stitch it wasn't used with a double but with a half double. This stitch is the only one I use to make blankets with...

Even though Bernat yarns are not available in South Africa I will be able to find a good substitute through the efforts of my wonderful local yarn store. This is such a gorgeous baby blanket and it looks so cuddly and warm that I just have to make it for a new little one (or 2 or 3, lol!) in my circle of family and friends.

Love the colors that were used in this blanket and the pattern is great too. Will have to try this. It is a real bummer that two of the yarn colors have been discontinued. Hopefully I can find some that are almost the same. I am really interested in the little handmade item tag attached to the blanket. Where can I print some of those?

I most appreciate the title Calming Crochet Baby Blanket and reading through the pattern it really would be a quick and easy afghan to make. Since crocheting simple baby blankets seem to be my comfort zone I look for ones that have an easy repetitious pattern. Many thanks for the helpful hints within the instructions on completing this pattern successfully.

I would like to know what I need to do after I click on download (my way, doc to pdf, etc.) What do I do after that to be able to print the pattern? Help please.

Hi stitchingdot, To access the pattern, click on the link that says Click Here for Crochet Pattern to be taken to the blogger's site. From there, simply scroll down a bit until you see the pattern. There's nothing to download - you can then highlight the pattern and right click and Print to Print the Selection you just highlighted, or just copy/paste it into word for your self. Thank you, and I hope that helps! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

I have used the 3D pattern it is a must try! Scarves and blankets turned out beautifully!

This looks rather easy to make. As a beginner, it would probably take me ages to complete but I'm sure it'd be worth it in the end.

Absolutely love this pattern, very easy and works fast. Great baby afghan for a friend!

I wish this pattern was right up front instead of having to "click here for the pattern". I tend not to get the patterns that I have to get from a link because I have problems with the various links.

Hi Marcy, the pattern is easily available by clicking on the "Click here for crochet afghan pattern link" above. This link takes you directly to the blogger's homepage where they host the pattern. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochet

This is very different and I like it. They are muted but still pretty. I think the pattern is easy and I can work it up quickly. I think a soft pink color would also work with the beige color. That way I can make both a boy and girl one along the same theme.

I want to do this blanket. I find the color combination uncommon which makes it more appealing. Here's the link to the pattern http// == baby-blanket/

I have used this pattern twice to create adult sized afghans. Of course, I added chains to enlarge the blankets, and they turned out well both times. I love the weave and texture of this pattern. Thanks for adding this!

WOW! Three rows of instructions. Oh my, I hope it's as simple as the instructions are short. I'm thinking I might make this up for my mom as a Christmas gift. EllyVance could you tell me a little bit more about how you made the adult version of this? Maybe the color combinations, your beginning chain count, finished dimensions, etc?

I love the look of the stitches of this blanket. I never would have thought this color combination would have worked, but then I would have been wrong. Because clearly, this blanket is beautiful. The stitches look sturdy, yet delicate at the same time, which I find intriguing. I just have to make this blanket now to see if I comes out the same way for me. Thank you for sharing this pattern with all of us.
