I am so excited to finally show you my newest little baby boy’s easy crochet blanket! Filip’s Baby Blanket uses beginner friendly moss stitch pattern which is actually very simple and quick to work up.
Filip’s Baby Blanket is a small carriage blanket, made for my newborn son. I started this easy crochet blanket a few weeks before he was born and it’s used from day one. It’s a lively design that creates a stretchy but solid fabric for a cozy and warm easy baby blanket.
I like to challenge myself in crochet. I like to learn new stitches and try new techniques, but sometimes I just need an easy pattern to relax with at the end of a busy day. This easy crochet blanket pattern has been just perfect for that purpose, especially in 3rd trimester! Because you are alternating chain and single crochet into chain space, it makes it the perfect mindless project for netflixing.
I chose Scheepjes’ Bamboo Soft yarn for this project, which is an eco-friendly yarn, 100% plant based fibre. This natural fibre yarn is breathable, cool and has an ultimate drape and sensual touch. This wonderful soft bamboo blanket is light and soft yet keeps baby cool in summer and warm in winter.
I wanted to keep this blanket pattern unisex so I combined a creamy and grey but you can use any colors you enjoy, since this easy crochet blanket is a versatile design that’s attractive in so many color duos. Just arrange the contrasting stripes wherever you like making your baby blanket truely personal and unique.
My Filip’s Easy Baby Blanket pattern is simple yet beautiful so that it can be made in any kind of yarn, in any colorway.
The pattern is for a 92cm x 64cm (36.25”x25.2) blanket, ideal for a pram, buggy or moses basket, however it also includes instructions for making larger blankets of any size you require.
