The Yarn That’s Perfect for this Baby Blanket

When the idea first came to me for this blanket, I knew that I wanted to use Lion Brand Heartland Yarn because it is incredibly soft and comes in such beautiful earthy colors.

I have used it to design some items in the past, like my Half & Half Boot Cuffs and Here is Autumn Hat, so I knew this yarn would be the perfect fit for a cozy baby blanket!


This yarn is made by Lion Brand, and is a Weight 4 – Medium yarn.


Fiber: 100% Acrylic
Yardage: 251yd / 230m (200yd / 183m in prints)
Hook: 6 mm (J-10)
Substitute: Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice

The Stitches for the Pebble Blanket

When I was designing this blanket, I used only single crochets and half double crochets! That’s it!

The half double crochets are worked a little differently than you may be used to, but that is what gives this blanket the Stoney pebble-like look. I will explain how to work these special half double crochets up in the abbreviation section below.

To finish up this fun blanket, I did one row of single crochet’s along the border to give it a clean finished look. Wallah! A finished baby blanket!

    1. Hi Ginger,

      Right above the main pattern there is a section labeled Crochet Abbreviations that has the sphdc stitch directions written out.

      If you have any more questions, I’d be happy to help.


  1. Hi! I just started this for my first great grandchild. Am so looking forward to seeing the finished product. As to a printed pattern, what I did was send it to myself on messenger. Now I have it in print!

  2. I love this pattern and think I will do it in white or light blue. However, I really wish that when a pattern is shown there would be a button to print just the pattern with one good picture on the first page. I wanted this one badly enough that I wrote it out by hand. Some pages make it simple to print and put it in my “to do” notebook.

    1. Hi Barbara,
      I usually do have a printable version of most of the patterns from my blog available in my shop, but this one is not one of them, unfortunately. I am slowly working on moving a few over to printable formats over time.

      I can’t wait to see it in light blue or white!

      Happy Crocheting!
