Quick + Easy Baby Blanket

Well time is short and you need a crochet baby blanket, give this one a try.  The Bernat Blanket Stripes yarn makes this project even easier as you don’t have to stop and change colors, yet it produces a fabulous blanket.  Of course, if you prefer to choose your own colors, there are many shades of regular Bernat Blanket yarn that will work just at well.

I used just 2 balls and 3 hours one evening to crochet this quick and easy blanket.  Its finished size is 29″ x 34″, just enough to cover a baby or use as a comfy mat for baby to lay on.  It’s so plush and soft, just perfect for a baby’s soft skin.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    In round 2, is it (sc, ch2, sc) in ch-2 sp, or
    (sc, ch1, sc) in ch-2 sp?
    The video tutorial says …ch1…, the written pattern says …ch2…

    or maybe I am reading/hearing wrong?

    1. Mikey says:

      Evening K. it’s probably me stating the wrong chain count. I will put a note on the tutorial.

  2. Jesslyn Schexnayder says:

    Thanks for sharing this pattern! I crocheted with Bernat Blanket yarn in pinks it was simple & quick.

  3. Angela says:

    Is there a pattern like this one for a square blanket.

    1. Mikey says:

      I don’t recall a square one of this but I will keep my eyes open. 🙂

      1. Jo E. says:

        Hi I am making this now. Thank you for the video it made it much easier to understand, but although I am getting a rectangle and it seems to be working out I only used the slip stitch for the 1st turn (& second turn?). I don’t understand how, where or why to use the slip stitch at the corner. Does it make that much difference? Thank you

      2. Mikey says:

        The slip stitching to the corner allows you to reset. However, if you don’t want to, you can start where you left off but it will make your slip stitch line go into the middle of the blanket. It may not be too noticeable. It’s why Jeanne did the slip stitching to the corner so it’s no so obvious. It’s really up to you.

    2. The Gigi block party would work. its a combo the Hugs & Kisses Blanket and the Modern Granny I’m sure you can use the moden granny from this which makes a square.

  4. We can use any yarn right?

  5. Jolene says:

    At 6:40 Mikey adds a chain 1 before the slip stitch in round 2 to the beginning sc. So glad to finally figure out why I was having so much trouble.

  6. Jolene says:

    At the end of round 2 Mikey chains 1 at 6:40 before he joins it to the first single crochet. This is not in the written pattern. Glad to have finally figur3d out why I couldn’t get this pattern working for me!!

  7. Missi Johnson says:

    Am I blind? I do not see any button for get pattern in pink or any other color. Please help thank you!

    1. Mikey says:

      Programming has since become obsolete. I will check to the article to see the link is still in paragraph. Just give me a few hours as I am in the middle of something more urgent. Michael

      1. Missi Johnson says:

        Thank you Mikey! I appreciate it.

  8. Missi Johnson says:

    i must be blind i do not see a get pattern button , or a pink button, please help thank you

  9. Shannan says:

    I don’t mean to be dense, but I am a beginner. I’m sure I’m doing this wrong. On each – I’ll call it long corner – the corners before doing the sides, – am I NOT supposed to do a slip stitch into the chain 2 SPACE? I thought I had to on each “long” corner, but it is the only 1 corner? Thanks for your help. I have to unravel again I think. ?


  10. Amanda says:

    Am I able to increase the size by just continuing to add more rounds?

  11. Sue Martin says:

    I am using Bernat Baby Blanket yarn with an 8 mm hook. It is puckering in the corner where I slip stitch to join. Is it because there is more yarn in that corner( 2 slip stitches)?

  12. Cathy Potter says:

    Help! Am I doing this correctly? The join doesn’t make a smooth triangle edge appearance in the corner as the other three corners. Makes a little crowded bump. My stitch counts are correct around the edges. This may just be my OCD on how it looks? Can’t really tell from the sample pictures.

    1. Kim Frisoli says:

      I’m having the same problem. I’ve pulled it apart and started over so many times! Why is this happening?

      1. I believe Jeanne has updated the pattern on round 3 . -lj

  13. Amber Carson says:

    I want to print this pattern.

    1. I have updated this with a printable PDF. Click on the Get Pattern button.

  14. Doris loser says:

    I have tried the pattern about a fifty times I just don’t know what I’m doing wrong it look so easy on the video I really want to try this pattern !!!!

  15. Marguerite Hill says:

    Rnd 3 is wrong in between the corners. It is missing the ch1 before the next corner on both ends. The video is right but not reflected in the written pattern. I knew it had to be wrong, so I watched the video and shows that missing ch.

    1. Thanks for catching that! I’m correcting it now. 🙂

      1. Marguerite Hill says:

        You are very welcome. Crochet is whole other language ❤️

      2. Missi Johnson says:

        Hi Jeanne, I am not seeing any get pattern button or any pink pdf button please help thank you

      3. Mikey says:

        Hey Missi, there wasn’t a PDF for this one but I just made one for you and applied the button for you. You should see it now.

  16. Sandy Benoit says:

    I would like to have a printed version as well. Is there one?

    1. yes it is available click the pink get pattern button. -lj

  17. Angela Gurganus says:

    Can you use Bernat pop instead of blanket yarn i live in the south so its hotter here

    1. I haven’t tested the pattern with #4 weight yarn. It may work, but might need a different starting chain length.

  18. Daryl says:

    Any chance your patterns are available in a printable version?

    1. Priscilla Blakemore says:

      Yes send us in printed form!

      1. Marina King says:
