Crochet Baby Blanket

Another favourite yarn by new mothers is Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn. Very thick to the touch and projects whip up so quickly. It’s called Candy-ghan due to the colours reminding Mikey of Candy Floss. There are a lot of different colours to choose from in this yarn line. Mikey has whipped up a video tutorial for this project as well. When completed, this afghan will be about 32″ square.

Square Afghan will measure approximately 32″ square using 2 balls of 300 G or 10.5 OZ yarn balls. Use more balls if desired to be bigger.

    I keep trying to crochet this blanket with no luck…..I am wondering how many stitches per round? Like how many stitches does each round increase?

    I love your work. I have been on YouTube so so many times learning new stitches.

  3. Beverley

    Love your videos as I have been inspired to try all different patterns and are now able to read a crochet pattern thank you mikey

  4. The video was very hard to see the stiches with that particular color. Would love to see it with a better color to see the stiches

  5. Donna H

    I have one question that wasn’t clear to me in the pattern or video. On round 3 when we DC into the corner gap.. Is this basically saying same stitch as slip stitch or am I to DC into the space? I’ve tried both but neither look right to me.
    Thank you!

    P.S. I love your work and I appreciate all that you do for us avoid crocheters. =)

  6. I made this and LOVE it, everyone loves the softness! I would love to use this same yarn but in a different pattern for more baby blankets—do you have other patterns, same yarn? Need right away, PLEASE
