Crochet Call the Midwife Baby Blanket
The Crochet Call The Midwife Baby Blanket wasn’t actually a baby blanket and was never called the Call The Midwife Blanket. It was simply called the Block Shawl in an original publication in the 1980s by Patons using the Beehive brand of yarn. As many of you already know, Patons North America falls into the Yarnspirations family of brands.
A correction was made in Row 6 thanks to a couple crocheters showing me my error. We are not on Revision 2.
It was initially a 4 mm / G hook using the pattern I have attached to the free downloadable pattern here. So the blocks you see in the pattern would be much tighter than the sample I have recreated. Behive was a lightweight yarn. Today, yarns are thicker and more pleasing to crocheters.
Patons aka Yarnspirations doesn’t have this pattern out in any of their social media but it still belongs to them. Our sponsorship covers the pattern they make. We have a free easy PDF download for you to have access to.
The border is simple which will allow you to add more rounds if you prefer to do a bit more. I used Red Heart Roll With It Tweeds.
So Where Did Name Come From?
Set designers for the show Call the Midwife used this pattern in their TV Show. People wondered what the pattern was and in time, it morphed from a shawl to a baby blanket and the public began to call it the Call The Midwife Blanket.
