Bebe Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern
Need a last minute baby shower gift? This super quick and super easy baby blanket takes less than 4 hours to make! It’s the perfect size for a newborn and the colors can easily be adjusted for any recipient!
To be honest, crocheting blankets isn’t my favorite. I have a hard time working on large projects because my attention span is not that long and I get bored of working on the same thing for an extended period of time. But when I heard my cousin was expecting a baby girl, I thought a handmade baby blanket would be such a sweet gift for her. I searched through Pinterest for a quick and easy blanket idea but couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for. I wanted something simple, but not too boring or basic. I wanted something that could work up really quick so I wouldn’t give up on it half way through. And lastly, I wanted to be able to use only the yarn in my stash, as I’ve been trying to work through it all for the last year.
When I searched through my stash I found these three pink tones. I had only used a little bit of each skein for a previous project and thought these would be perfect for a baby girl blanket! With only having less than one skein of each, my design options were limited so I added in the ivory to make up for the lack of yardage but it also added a nice contrast and brightness to all the pink. I have previously designed a chevron blanket (American Flag Blanket) and loved how easy it was to make, but it wasn’t boring to look at, even though it’s only double crochet stitches.
The size of the blanket came down to how much yarn I had to use but you can easily adjust it to be bigger or smaller! You can also change the color, use more or less colors, make it all one color, the options are limitless on how to make this blanket perfect for you! The best part of it all, it takes LESS THAN 4 HOURS TO MAKE! Now, this depends on how fast or slow you are at crocheting plus some breaks, but I consider myself to crochet on the slower side and I took many breaks while working on this blanket and it still took me just under 4 hours from start to finish. So whether you’re looking to make a last minute baby shower gift or just love the design of this simple, yet beautiful baby blanket, I hope you enjoy this pattern!
So let’s grab our supplies and let’s get making!
Finished size = 30″ x 30″
13 STs x 6 Rows = 4” x 4”
Adjust hook size up or down or adjust tension to meet gauge.
● The number in parenthesis at the end of each row represents the total number of stitches to be worked in that row.
● The chain 2 at the beginning of each row does not count as a stitch.
● Repeat stitches between the ** until the end of the round or until otherwise stated.
● To adjust the width, chain a multiple of 31 + 4
On the final pull through of the last stitch of the current color, drop current color and pull through with the new color. Tie the tail ends together, weave in now or at the end, and continue with the pattern.
