Crochet Baby Blanket

This idea comes from another existing design that is part of Yarnspirations that is called the Simple Baby Blanket. I’ve changed up the starting chain but the concept is the same which includes the border.

This afghan plays with the idea of doing single crochet and ch 1. This creates ch-1 spaces which are where you play in the row above. Due to this effect, it makes the stitches look locked together and makes for a speedy process.

Tips

  • This pattern is exceptionally simple. The stitches really connect well with each other too.
  • If changing the size of the pattern, the stitch multiples are in sets of 2. If changing the size, it will alter the amount of yarn needed for your project. Every 2 stitches = 1 inch.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
