Every new mom is sure to love this crocheted baby blanket pattern. Mom's Favorite Baby Blanket is just the right size for traveling. This particular crochet pattern is designed to fit perfectly over your baby's car seat. Babies will especially love the ridged texture of this ripple blanket that is created by working in the back loops of each row. The trendy chevron design can be made in any color combination you want, which makes this homemade baby blanket a great gift for both baby boys and girls.

Note: I recommend that you change colors only at the end of even rows so that every new color begins on an odd row. On my blanket, each stripe is 6 rows tall, for a total of 8 stripes.]

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

This is a cute blanket, and a great idea, but I am trying to make sense of the sizing as well. Your gauge shows 12 rows as being 3 inches. The pattern only has 48 rows, no repeats mentioned. Is it really only 12" long, or is your gauge wrong?

I make blankets for various needs and the FIRST thing that I look for is the finished size. Various hospitals have EXACT requirements. Without this information, I ignore all patterns, no matter how cute.

What is the finished sizes of your blanket?

This baby blanket is super quick to crochet. I love it because you can use up your scrap balls of yarn, and even though the colours may not match, you'll still end up with an adorable blanket! The small size is great, as it's not as bulky as a standard larger blanket might be.

I am on row 23 and have made the 11 chains Does this leave a hole in the blanket or am I missing something?

In case you never got an answer, yes it leaves a hole that allows you to lay the blanket over the carseat and bring the latch up through the hole.

This baby blanket is so adorable. I want to make it yes for baby's stroller blanket or picnic blanket or when baby rides the boat. Thanks for having the pattern and the photos in front to make it easy for us crocheters. I have pinned this blanket.

I am trying to pull up the instructions, but it continues to bring me to this comment page!?

How many more chains would you add if you would like to make this blnket wider?

did you get an answer to this question? i was wondering the same thing

This is a 14 stitch pattern repeat, so add chains in multiples of 14 until you have the width you want.

Thank you prelovedbooks for that answer, I was wondering the same thing since this pattern is adorable! I think this would look lovely for even an adult. I'm thinking of making one in this pattern for my bed in teal, gray and white!

I love your afghans. I tried this pattern a long time ago and could not get my peaks to match up. I hope I can do it this time.

Not what I am looking for.
