CROCHET PATTERN INFORMATION

Crochet Skill Level

This free c2c crochet baby blanket pattern is a Level 3 Intermediate.

Crochet Project Materials

Finished Crochet Baby Blanket Size

My finished c2c crochet baby blanket measured 45 inches by 67 inches.

Crochet Gauge

Gauge is important for this free crochet baby blanket pattern.

4 squares (ch 3 + 3 dc) = 2 inches

  • You can make this crochet baby blanket following the pixel graph or the written instructions.
  • Written instructions are for working the crochet baby blanket from the bottom right corner to the top left.
  • Crochet the pixel graph using the corner-to-corner (c2c) technique. Use the traditional method of making three double crochets for each square.
  • Chain 6 to start each new row and chain 3 at the beginning of each square.

Corner to corner (c2c) crochet is a technique where you crochet “squares” in diagonal rows.

To make this crochet baby blanket, you will start in the bottom right corner and end in the top left corner.

c2c Crochet Increases

Increases are made at the end of each row. Chain 6 and DC in the 4th chain from the hook and in each of the 2 remaining chains.

You will have a chain 3 + 3 DC square. This is your first square for the beginning of the next row.

c2c Crochet Decreases

The first decreases for both the width and length will create corners.

To decrease, turn your work and slip stitch across the 3 DC’s in the last square made. Join with a slip stitch to the chain 3 space and chain 3 + 3 DC.

  • dc = double crochet
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • ch = chain
  • chs = chains
  • st = stitch
  • sts = stitches
  • sl st = slip stitch

Step 2: Join the Crochet Animals

Sew the crochet baby blanket squares together. Make sure the crochet animals are facing the right way.

Use locking stitch markers to hold the crochet animals together. Weave in your loose ends.

Step 3: Add a Crochet Baby Blanket Border

Now it’s time to add a border.

I made a Spike Stitch border in Taupe because I wanted it to look like a fence.

Join your yarn to the single crochet border above a square where the stitches are vertical (up & down).

Ch 1 and make three sc. For the 4th stitch, you are going to sc into the space between the first and second stitches (they are horizontal and are highlighted in blue in the picture below). This is a spike stitch.

Repeat the process of making three single crochet stitches followed by a spike stitch all the way around the blanket. In the corners you’ll chain 2.
