Crochet Sweet Pink Baby Blanket Pattern

My project today, Sweet Pink Baby Blanket Pattern, is a fun square that is crocheted from the middle and is just so lovely and pretty in pink.

If it looks familiar, that is because it is a square version of my Christmas Trimmings Afghan!  I actually started this one first, but when Michael challenged me for a holiday themed idea, I knew I could turn this fun pattern into a rectangle for home decor use.  I do like squares for babies though as it seems nice to swaddle and cuddle them.

Once you get crocheting on this one, you will notice the repeat, but the colors are opposite reflections because I only used 2 colors of Red Heart With Love in this design.  This textured blanket would also look nice in a solid color, or even 3 colors or more.  As Michael always says, “you are the artist”!

If you would like to continue on to make this blanket bigger, queen size bed topper perhaps, you can just leave off the last 2 rounds and continue the repeat pattern until the size you desire.  The stitch counts will grow proportionally.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.

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.

    Hi… I’m wearing my glasses, lol, but I still can’t find how many to chain to start off, I’ve looked very closely.
    thanks

    1. Jeanne says:

      Chain 2. It’s worked from the center out.

  2. Tiffany Pulkowski says:

    Could someone clarify round 14 please? I get 35 on each side of round 13 like the pattern states. However, no matter what I do, by following the pattern for round 14, I get 51 stitches, not the noted 49.

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ve requested Jeanne to follow up with your comment when she has a moment.

      1. Tiffany Pulkowski says:

        Thank you, I didn’t mean to submit it twice. I didn’t see the first one so I thought I had done it wrong

      2. Mikey says:

        That’s okay. I force them to be approved so we don’t miss a comment. It forces me to read everything and respond accordingly.

    2. Jeanne says:

      Hi Tiffany
      I just replied to your photo in the group.
      Thanks, Jeanne

  3. Tiffany Pulkowski says:

    Is there an issue with round 14? I have the noted 35 stitches on each side in round 13, but no matter how I count round 14 I end up with 51 stitches instead of the noted 49.

  4. Kelly M Lane says:

    Can a video be made for this pattern? Its lovely and looks like a lot of fun to make.
    Thank you,
    K. Lane

    1. Mikey says:

      I’ll take a closer look and do a metrics test.

  5. Barbara Kuehne says:

    Beautiful blanket – I look forward to making it
