Baby Blankets

My after-supper projects have been finished.

These are two, fast and easy, baby blankets.  Easy, because it is made with two stitches, single crochet and chain stitch.  It would be a perfect pattern for a beginner; I'm not a beginner but I'm all for easy.  Fast?  Well probably for most people, but age is making me slower and besides, what's the hurry.

The instructions leave it up to the person doing the work as to what she wants to use for a border.  I chose a simple shell pattern.  

The yarn used for these blankets was BERNAT baby sport and I used a size 6 crochet hook.  The closeness of the stitches makes the blanket feel almost like a thermal blanket.  The free pattern can be found here: https://www.thespruce.com/easy-crochet-baby-blanket-pattern-978033   If you crochet, give it a try; I think you will be pleased with the outcome.

Have a good weekend!


  1. I sometimes do crochet a baby blanket or afghan. Thanks for the pattern. Since I don't do it often, staying with easy patterns helps a lot. Yours look beautiful and I love the edging you added to finish it off.

  2. I gotta get that pattern. Thanks.

  3. for some reason, the link didn't work.
    Can you help me?

    1. I thought of you when I found this pattern. I'm sorry the link didn't work. I haven't a clue about that, so I've scanned the directions and as soon as I figure out how to send them, I'll email them to you. If that's above my knowledge, I'll put them a comment to you. :)

  4. Charlotte, I don't know how you manage with so much other things to do! I haven't crocheted in many years, and then only a few afghans! Your baby blankets are beautiful!


  5. I can imagine a sweet, soon-to-be-here, little girl that would love to snuggle into one of these lovely and soft blankets.

  6. Wow, so beautiful. I wish i could do that. I've always wanted to learn but never got around to it. You are a very talented lady.

  7. I thought I'd pop back over and thank you for the sweet comment on mine. I love coming to your blog and reading your awesome posts. It's a lot of enjoyment for me to do this. There are days and sometimes weeks when I'm unable to get on the computer but I try to every chance I get. I look forward to your posts and visiting with you. God Bless you dear friend.

  8. Beautiful baby blankets! They look so soft and snuggly! It is nice to relax with some hand work in the evening.

  9. Very pretty blankets, Charlotte! I bet they are so cozy and warm too.

  10. Oh so sweet and pretty! Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern

  11. So pretty and I love the color! Thank you for sharing the pattern link

  12. oh my
    I wish I lived close to you
    for you to once again teach me
    how to crochet.
    if any instructions available
    maybe someone local would teach me...
    I miss doing this and would help me be calmer :)

  13. The blankets are so pretty! I wish so much that I could crochet. After reading your blog, every time, I plan to look for someone in the area to teach me to crochet, but then I get busy and forget.

  14. They look so soft. Perfect for a wee one to stay warm. It always made me feel cozy too when I wrapped them around my babies.

  15. thank you for your reply :)
    I need one on one instructions also.
    Someone sitting next to me.
    Had that many years ago. God Bless Anna Lee, now gone
    a long time and I forgot what she taught me :)

  16. Your baby blankets are charming. They look so delicate and soft. You are a gifted crocheter.

  17. Unfortunately, I can't crochet. These are so pretty. And, I've been looking at your other posts, Charlotte, you are so talented. Everything is so pretty.
