Creating a baby crochet blanket with a simple and lovely stitch pattern is a wonderful project to showcase your crafting skills and create a special keepsake. One of the most popular and easy-to-learn stitches for a baby blanket is the “Granny Square” stitch. Here’s a step-by-step guide to making a baby crochet blanket using the Granny Square stitch:

Materials you’ll need:

  1. Baby yarn in your preferred color(s).
  2. An appropriate crochet hook for your yarn (usually a size recommended on the yarn label).
  3. Scissors.
  4. Yarn needle.

Basic Steps:

  1. Choose your yarn and hook: Select a soft and baby-friendly yarn in colors you like. Pick a crochet hook that matches the yarn weight, as specified on the yarn label.
  2. Start with a slipknot: Create a slipknot by making a loop with the yarn and pulling the working end through the loop. Tighten the knot on your hook.
  3. Foundation chain:a. Chain a multiple of 3 stitches to create the desired width of your baby blanket. For example, if you want a 36-inch wide blanket, you can chain 102 stitches (36 x 3 = 108, plus 4 for turning).b. Once you’ve chained the desired width, add an additional 4 chains to act as your first double crochet and turning chain.
  4. Row 1: Skip the first three chains (which count as your turning chain) and work 2 double crochets (dc) into the 4th chain from your hook. This creates the first cluster of your Granny Square stitch. Skip 2 chains, then work 3 dc into the next chain – this creates the “Granny Cluster.” Repeat this pattern across the row.
  5. Turning chain: After the last Granny Cluster in the row, make a turning chain by chaining 3.
  6. Row 2 and beyond: Turn your work and continue creating Granny Clusters in the spaces between the clusters in the previous row. Always start with a turning chain of 3. Repeat this pattern until your blanket is the desired length.

  1. Color changes (optional): If you want to add different colors to your baby blanket, you can change the yarn color at the end of a row or when you desire. Simply complete the last double crochet of a cluster with the new color.
  2. Finishing: Once you’ve achieved the desired length for your baby blanket, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
  3. Blocking (optional): Depending on your yarn and personal preference, you may choose to block your blanket to give it a neater and more even appearance.
