What’s better than making a handmade gift for that special someone expecting a new baby in the upcoming months? If you need a super simple pattern for a baby afghan to make for an expectant mother or to donate to charities here is one you may enjoy.
The Simple Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern is a fast and easy project that is crocheted using Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn. The yarn is ultra-soft and durable and available in a variety of color combinations. The yarn also makes up quick and easy projects that are soft enough to make blankets for everyone in the family.
The pattern calls for two skeins of yarn but some have been able to crochet a blanket using only 1 skein of the 10-1/2 oz. skein of yarn. You can also choose other baby yarns that you enjoy to make the simple pattern but you may have to modify it a bit.
It also requires a larger size N-15 crochet hook to crochet the blanket. Adjusting the crochet hook size to a smaller or larger hook will provide a tighter or looser looking stitch for the afghan.
A simple crochet baby blanket makes a quick blanket to crochet for donations to local charities also. Since it takes not much time to crochet one blanket it’s easy to make up a bunch of these blankets to give to hospitals and other organizations.
This pattern is available to read online or print from your computer for free, just follow the link to the Simple Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern.
