This blanket is designed to be a small baby blanket or lap throw, which makes it the perfect go-to project to use up extra yarn.

I had a lot of leftover yarn (which I am willing to bet you do too!) from past projects, so I decided to use all different yarn brands to create a fun, unique baby blanket. Learn more about the yarn below.

The Yarn Used in this Blanket

For this blanket, I mostly used Red Heart Soft Yarn. Red Heart Soft is an 100% acrylic, worsted weight four yarn and is astonishingly soft as the name of the yarn label suggests.

I also used a few different colors of Caron Simply Soft mixed in as well for some extra fun colors.

If you wanted to get a similar look, I’d suggest these two yarns. It has a beautiful almost shiny look to it which makes the blanket look even better in my opinion.

You’ll love it! Promise. Take a look at a few of my favorite yarn colors of these brands to see which one you’d like to make your crochet project with.

Do you need a substitute yarn? If you don’t have that yarn handy, any worsted weight yarns such as Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice or Caron Simply Soft will work just as well.

The colors in this blanket lends themselves being unisex and is perfect to use as a baby shower gift!  If you are ready to make this baby blanket, read on down for the full, FREE pattern using the crochet blanket stitch tutorial!

  1. Thank you. I enjoyed learning this stitch. Made up beautifully.

  2. Christian says:

    I absolutely love this stitch! I have made several blankets now with it and get compliments on all of them. Thank you for sharing this with us.

    1. I am so glad you liked it! You are very welcome, and I am always happy to share. 🙂

  3. I love this pattern however the edges are starting to be tight and curl. I’ve enlarged the sc stitch and the chain 1 stitch to loosen the edge but it’s not working. I’ve been crocheting for 50 years and it’s driving me crazy. Any hints to stop this tight edge?

    1. Hi Vicki,

      You could chain 2 if you’d prefer at the beginning of the rows and mark the second chain with a stitch marker, so you know where to place your last sc. I hope this helps.

  4. At the end of the row Should it be skip 2 chains then single crochet Iast stitch?

  5. I must be the only one who is having a problem with this super easy pattern. My question is at the end of row 2 (after the first time you’ve done row 2), where exactly does the single crochet go? Thank you.

    1. Hi Leslie,

      The single crochet at the end of the row goes into the top of the last turning chain of the chain two from the row before.

  6. I enjoyed this pattern. The 1 row repeat made it easy for me to set it down and pick back up again around my schedule and not stress. I used worsted weight yarn, so it took me some time, more than others have reported. But this is my first throw sized blanket that I finished, I think in ever. Thank you!

  7. I love all the patterns

  8. How many chains to make a full size blanket?

  9. Marilyn Rademachjer says:

    I am trying to print out the pattern for my 89 yr old mother who loves to crochet. I thought this would be simple to sign up for free patterns. I get nothing.

  10. I was looking for an easy pattern to take on vacation & I think I have finally found it. Thanks for sharing.

  11. I really love this pattern. Easy to follow.

  12. Did you do 4 skeins of each color? I’m going to try it in super bulky with larger hook so I’m trying to gauge how many skiens..

  13. Hi Krista, About how many yards of yarn would this be in total? I am thinking of making it using just 2 colours and not sure how much I will need. Happy new year from Australia!

  14. Shannon Hogan says:

    How many rows did you do for each color? 11? Just making sure. Thank you!! This blanket is beautiful and perfect!!

    1. Hi Shannon!
      Opps! I forgot to include that part when I wrote the pattern! 🙂 I believe I did 6 rows of each color though. I am so glad you like the pattern! Have fun making it! 🙂

  15. This works up fast and lovely, but with a 66ch foundation chain is only 14.5 inches wide for me. It will be a doll blanket! 🙂

    1. Hi Cindi,

      You could easily adjust the width and length if you choose. Just make sure to chain a multiple of 3 to start.

      Krista

  16. Thankyou so much to share this Blanket, is beautiful!

  17. Does this pattern work up quickly? I desperately need a faster pattern for my oldest son since the one for the youngest is taking ages
