Double Crochet Baby Blanket
  • Main color: 2 skeins of yarn
  • Contrast border: ½ skein of yarn
  • Use size I/5.5mm hook
  • Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
  • scissors
  1. Row 1: Chain stitch 50-55 stitches loosely. Make certain to maintain an even tightness so each chain stitch evenly spaced. This row will be foundation of your blanket, so you can make it as long as your short as you would like your blanket to be.
  2. Row 2: Double crochet in each chain across.
  3. Row 3+: Repeat Row 2 until blanket measures 16" across (approximately 20-24 rows).
  4. For border: If you want to incorporate a contrasting yarn, the border would be the perfect place. Otherwise continue to use the main color yarn and do 2 double crochets for every stitch.
  5. Fasten off yarn and weave in all ends using a tapestry needle.
