These free crochet baby blanket patterns are most suitable for beginners and those who can spare around half a day to make a baby blanket. First, you will learn a basic pattern and then get to know the variations you can make.
You will need light weight yarn suitable for babies (2 balls should be enough), crochet needle, sewing needle and safety pin. First, place the safety pin in the first chain from where you start. Then single crotch the third chain from hook. Do one chain, then skip the next and again do single crotch in the next chain. Do this for the entire row and then turn.
For row 2, single crotch in the next chain 1 and then single stitch in the chain 1. Repeat this for the rest of the row. At the end of the row, do a single crotch single stitch where you placed the safety pin initially.
Do the rest of the rows same way. At the end of the rows, make your single crotch single stitch into a turning chain of the previous row. You need to continue doing this until the desired length is achieved.
To finish free crochet baby blanket patterns, cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Enter this as thread in your sewing needle and weave the loose ends of the blanket.
In order to add variation to free crochet baby blanket patterns, you can use either Afghan edging or Puff Lace edging or any other edging style of your choice.
