  • Yarn: Himalaya Dolphin Baby (Or another comparable velvet yarn. Look for soft, baby-friendly options.)
  • Hook: 5.50 mm crochet hook (Adjust hook size slightly if needed to match your tension and yarn.)
  • Scissors
  • Stitch Markers (Optional, but helpful for beginners)

Skill Level: Beginner

Stitches & Techniques

Even if you’re new to crochet, don’t fret! This pattern mainly uses:

  • Chain Stitch (ch): The foundation of many crochet projects.
  • Single Crochet (sc): Creates a firm, dense fabric.
  • Half Double Crochet (hdc): Gives a bit more height and texture than the single crochet.

If these stitches are entirely new to you, a quick search on YouTube (like “[stitch name] tutorial” ) will bring up tons of resources to help!

Step by Step Pattern

  1. Chain Your Foundation: Decide on your desired blanket size. For a roughly 90x90cm blanket, chain 90. (Remember, 1cm is roughly equal to 1 chain with this yarn-hook combo.)
  2. Row 1: Single crochet (sc) into the second chain from hook, then single crochet in each chain across.
  3. Row 2: Chain 1, turn your work. Locate the stitch at the beginning of the row, this has two loops at the top. Skip that first stitch and insert your hook under both loops at once of the following stitch. Make a half double crochet (hdc). Continue making a hdc in each stitch across the row.
  4. Repeat: Continue repeating Row 2 until you reach your desired blanket length.
  5. Finish: Chain 1, cut your yarn, leaving a tail. Gently weave in the ends.

Tips & Tricks

  • Counting is key: Especially at the start, count your stitches at the end of each row to ensure you didn’t accidentally add or lose any.
  • Tension: Don’t pull too tightly – keep your stitches consistent for an even finished look.
  • Stitch Markers: Help you keep track of the beginning and end of rows – super useful for beginners!
  • Customizing: Easily adjust the starting chain to make your blanket any size you’d like.

Beyond the Baby Blanket

This versatile pattern opens the door to creative projects! Here are a few ideas:

  • Scarf: Make a shorter, narrower version for a cozy winter accessory.
  • Lovey: Create a tiny square for a comforting security blanket.
  • Experiment with Color: Explore different shades of velvet yarn for exciting effects.
