Crochet Baby Blanket

This easy crochet baby blanket is inspired by doing double crochets in the gap spaces between the double crochets in the row below. Inspired by our Trendy Baby Blanket. This is a very similar design but without changing the colours.

This afghan has 2 rounds of single crochet in white.

Bernat Blanket Yarn

This baby blanket uses two colours. Baby Rose, main colour, is the primary colour shown in my project is discontinued, sorry I had this in my collection and didn’t realize it was discontinued. The border is white. To get this complete size, you will need 4 balls of main colour and 1 ball for a border.

The balls are 300 g or 10.5 oz’s. There are two sizes of yarn. Be sure to get the biggest ball which is the 300 g size.

Dimensions

Using 10 mm or Size N crochet hook, you will get a 44″ wide by 48″ long baby blanket.

Tips

  • 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. 

Pattern

  1. Crochet Gap Space Baby Blanket
    Crochet Gap Space Baby Blanket

    Using Main Colour, chain 78. DC twice in 4th chain from hook. *skip 1 stitch, 2 dc into next stitch (this forms a group of 2). Repeat * until end. 1 dc in the final chain. Turn.

  2. Ch 3, skip the next dc and dc twice into the space between the next group of 2. See picture for clarification. * Dc twice in each space between the groups of 2 from the row below. Repeat * until the end. 1 dc in the final stitch. Turn. By going between the groups of 2, it causes the stitches to have a zig zag appearance.
  3. Repeat Step 2 until you run out of 4 balls of Main Colour. Continue to repeat Steps 2 – 3 until your afghan is 36″ long. You will run out of yarn by the end.

Border

  1. Fasten on to any corner. 1 sc evenly spaced down the outside edges. In corners, place 3 sc. On top and bottom edges 1 sc into each stitch across. Slip stitch to first sc.
  2. Ch 1, 1 sc in first sc, 3 sc into next. *1 sc into each all the way to the next corner. 3 sc into middle of the 3 sc in the row below. Repeat * around and then join with a slip stitch to the beginning and fasten off.

  1. Mikey I am having problems with crochet hooks in larger sizes. I don’t like plastic and notice that you are using metal hooks with ergonomic handles. Can you please share the brand?

    Best Regards and thanks for your great tutorials.

  2. Could someone please give me some input on this blanket (Queen of Hearts) vs. “Crochet beginners baby blanket”?? I have done mostly single and double crochet……several “wave” afghans but I am inexperienced in following a pattern. Is one of these much more simple? Is one prettier than the other when made up? Would really appreciate some help. I want to make two baby blankets this year for expected great grandchildren. Thank you
