Quick and Simple Striped Baby Blanket Pattern

Use this adorable baby blanket crochet pattern to whip up a beautiful, heirloom quality piece in very short order. This blanket works up quickly, and is one of my personal favorites. The variation of stitches keeps it from being boring, and yet it’s repetitive enough to work on while you’re watching TV, listening to an audiobook, or visiting with friends. The classic picot edging gives this easy crochet blanket pattern a polished look and gives it a timeless feel. This blanket looks beautiful in one color, but can also provide a fun way to play with colors - try anything from bold and bright to soft and muted. Using an I hook and worsted weight yarn, this pattern is approximately 33"x40". Directions included to make this blanket any size you wish.

At first glance I would have to say I would have to say that this is not a simple pattern. I think it is really attractive. If you do not click into the direction page of this pattern I promise you, you are doing a disservice to yourself. If you do not have a need for a baby blanket, I would even consider making this for a throw or afghan. It is stunning, not simple by any means.

By looking at this quick and simple striped baby blanket I would never in a million years say that it is "simple". If you look closely you will see that this pattern has a lot of detail. There are two distinct textures in the pattern and there is a detailed edging as well. This is a far cry from simple. I just love it. The colors are very appealing as well.

I've started one like this but in a different color combination. I think I will have to disentangle them and started over using this pattern. I love this one. The colors are well defined and the lines are so clean. I love it!

One of the funnest decisions is what colors to choose on your projects. I love the shades of the colors used in this pattern. It looks like it would work up rather quickly and it has a variety of stitches. There are a lot of pictures of the final project to go along with this tutorial.

It's a baby blanket! It's a lap blanket! It's a car blanket! So many uses for a precious and vintage style blanket. Paintbox colors look amazing! I don't like to order yarn online because I don't like to have to wait for delivery, and I like to see, touch, and feel the yarn for myself when picking out types and textures. I think Caron Simply Soft is a comparable yarn choice -)

The nicest thing about this very attractive project is that it doesnt actually look like a baby blanket. I love the alternating sets of stitches for the rows. These are simple stitches but combined make a wonderful texture. I may pass this pattern on to some of the other ladies in our Project Linus group. Not everyone likes to quilt. The size makes it perfect for a lap blanket for someone in a wheelchair, too.
