Crochet For Baby With These 20+ Free Blanket Patterns

Here’s a new list for blankets, this time for crochet (see knitting projects here). I found some really nice ones to include in this collection and there’s sure to be something here to suit everyone’s style. I’ll be adding more as I come across them, enjoy!
Tiramisu: Finished size is 32″ x 32″. Made with lovely organic cotton and trimmed with ribbon. File download is here (pdf).

Basket Weave: Finished size 42″x33″ (approximately). This is also easy to make up into a bigger piece.
Simple Stripes: Red yarn twisted with salmon to create a subtle tweed for the stripes, but a single color can be just as striking.

Afghan: Finished size is approx. 38″ square, this is very stretchy lengthwise. If desired, may be blocked to measure 37″ x 46″.
Mayflower: Skill level marked as Intermediate, approx. finished size measures 37″ 40″.

Gecko: Only requires a small amount of each colour so it’s perfect for using up scraps of worsted-weight yarn. Finished size measures 22″ x 22″.
Greta’s: The flowers are optional and you use anything you like. You’ll find plenty of ideas here.

Spiral: A simple design, worked in the round. Suitable for beginners.
Sugar Babies: Finished size is approx 117 x 101.5 cm (46″ x 40″). Recommended for those with some experience.

Cotton Chenille: Finished size measures 26″ square (approx.), to make it a little larger, just change the number of stitches that you chain.
Reversible Shell: You may use any fingering or DK weight yarn of choice.

Quilt: Fabric is used to back and bind edges.
Arcade Stitch How-To: Very easy to do & gives the project a delicate look. You determine the length & width as you like.

Ripple: Afghan measures approximately 30″/76 cm wide by 38″/96.5 cm long. A knit version is also available.
Bobble Afghan: Skill level Intermediate.

Bobble Stitches & Stripes: Large enough to cover a newborn or infant carrier car seat, you’ll need 7 skeins in desired colors of worsted weight yarn and a 5.0mm hook (H/8).
Through Any Window: Finished size 30″ square. With three different rows, this will give you a tad more variety while still preserving the simple mechanics and appearance of granny in the round.

Field of Dreams: Finished size measures 39″ x 32″ and is made up of 20 squares in a variety of color combinations.
Lego Blocks Design: Cute! There are 8 bobble stitches worked in each block to resemble lego pieces.

Easy Afghan: Soft and cozy, this is made with three strands of bulky yarn and measures 34″ x 30″ when done.
Vintage Popcorn Design: Love this! Directions are only for 1 square so you’ll need to have some experience with crochet to work this into a throw or afghan.

Teddy Doudou: A small comfort lovey, this is for the teddy head/ears/arms, use granny square of choice for the rest.
Sunshine Dots: Worked in sport weight yarn, textured stitches created with simple chains dot the surface.

Austyn’s: Main body is done in a trellis stitch and has a fun ruffly edge worked in two colors.

      Hi Edna, I added the direct link to the pdf file in the description area above, see if that works for you. If not, make sure you have the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat installed on your computer…if you have an outdated version, that might be the problem. I’ve checked the file and it loads fine.

    I am trying to find a pattern for a baby afghan I used to make years ago. I originally found the pattern in a booklet put out by Red Heart Yarns. The center part was like a granny square that you continued until it had 104 doubles on a side. Then you made a scalloped edge that was about 12 inches wide. It was made with baby weight yarn. If anyone has this pattern, I would appreciate it if you would contact me. Thank you.
