What is The Best Yarn for Baby Blankets?
What is the best yarn to make a baby blanket in? I get this question a lot and the answer is that it depends on the family you are making it for! Ask them what they prefer in a yarn, if there are any allergies and their pick of color.
There are so many choices, brands and fibers so you will always be able to find a good match of yarn for your gift. I prefer using soft yarn that is washable for baby blankets and linked up one of my favorites below.
Below the baby blanket & lovey patterns have a variety of different yarn brands that were used. I linked them all up, so you’ll be able to see the fiber content and the color choices that are best for you and your client.
Crochet Baby Blanket Sizes
Each of the patterns below will have the size listed within in the pattern and may even have sizes that are larger like a crib blanket. Be sure to look over the pattern you pick to be sure of the size baby blanket you are going to make.
The most common sizes for baby blankets are lovey, strollers, receiving and baby. These are just suggested sizes and the blanket sizes will more than likely vary from pattern to pattern.
|Lovey||12 x 12|
|Stroller||30 x 35|
|Receiving||40 x 40|
|Baby||42 x 52|
Are you ready to pick your new favorite baby blanket pattern? I hope you love this baby blanket roundup! Happy Crocheting.
