Magic Baby Blanket


This crochet baby blanket is worked up with bulky-weight yarn, making it super quick to work up and super warm for baby.

From the blogger: "I crocheted this baby blanket in one day. It’s a great crochet project for a last minute gift idea too. I was inspired by a crochet afghan I found on Ravelry called Sea Glass Afghan, but changed it to baby size with the bulky weight self-striping yarn. Any bulky yarn would be work. You can alternate colors to match any decor."

This is cute. It's bright and cheerful and would brighten up any room. Plus, when it was marked easy, they weren't lying. It's very easy. Basic stitches that any beginner has learned. If you use thick of bulky yarn you will be very surprised at how quickly you will be able to get it done.

This is very good pattern for someone who has not be crocheting for very long. They would be able to make this blanket for a baby boy or baby girl super fast.

Im not familiar with that yarn either. Is it a trick of the light or is there a slight sheen to it? This is such a simple pattern that starts the repeat immediately after youve worked that Foundation Double Crochet. If you still have any questions, the embedded instructional video has been included (both right and left handed versions). The blanket is small, the hook size is large, so that makes for a quickie project!

This literally reminds me of a giant bag full of saltwater taffy, and I love that! I don't know this yarn, though, and I wish I could touch it and feel it right now. I get so much satisfaction with that aspect of my crochet. I am sure lots of you do, too! She's made a simple stitch pattern into something special. Thanks for this one!

Youre right, it does look like salt water taffy. Any trip to the beach wouldnt be complete without bringing back several souvenir boxes to share with friends.

Very pleasing to the eye, this Magic Baby Blanket. The color scheme is just so well coordinated creating a crochet blanket piece for baby boy or baby girl that is so pleasing to the eyes. This work of art will make the mother very happy. It is a very interesting conversation piece among moms. This will make a very valuable baby shower gift or christening present.

So pretty

This is aa simple pattern that works up quickly. I prefer regular variegated yrn over the self-striping, but I do think it's really cool how the stripes work into the design. With multiple children of my own and multiple grandchildren, I personally find blankets with large openings between stitches can be little finger- and toe-catchers, which is the reason for my 4-star.

What a cute Baby Blanket, I do like the self striping yarn he used in this pattern. The pattern reads easy and looks like it will work up quickly. I'm thinking I will put a simple border around mine when It's done. I have never done the dc starting chain so I'll Google it and figure it out.. Thank you for this free crochet pattern.
