This easy baby blanket is fun to work on and full of love. This free crochet pattern would make a sweet gift for a family friend or even donate one to the local hospital. #CrochetBabyBlanket #EasyCrochetBabyBlanket #BabyBlanketPatternHeart Graphgan Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

If you’ve recently found yourself scouring through blankets and crochet patterns on the internet, stop. The search is over. This Heart Graphgan crochet baby blanket is a dream.

This pattern is fun and exciting. You’ll get to learn the graphing technique which is different from a lot of baby blankets. It involves keeping count and using multiple balls of yarn. While this baby blanket is unique, baby blanket patterns can also have similarities. Their shape and baby blanket size; even the color palette in some cases.

There are lots of easy crochet baby blankets to be made. But this one is special. And don’t you want to make a personalized baby blanket if you’re going to put the effort in?

This baby blanket crochet project has a big heart in the middle crocheted out of soft yarn. The baby blanket crochet pattern calls for Berroco Comfort Chunky yarn is two colors. One for the large heart at the center and the other for the base blanket.  

The yarn is an acrylic nylon blend that’s soft and plushy. It’s even machine washable (always a good thing when kids are involved).

The baby blanket dimensions are easily adjustable too. You could easily add stitches to each side of the blanket to make it bigger. I wouldn’t alter the size of the heart though unless you have experience with it.

This easy baby blanket is fun to work on and full of love. This free crochet pattern would make a sweet gift for a family friend or even donate one to the local hospital. #CrochetBabyBlanket #EasyCrochetBabyBlanket #BabyBlanketPattern

Easy Striped Crochet Baby Hat Pattern

These free crochet patterns for baby hats are amazing and quick to work up. These baby boy hats or girl hats can be made for 0-3 months or 3-6 months. #CrochetHat #CrochetBabyHat #BabyHatCrochetPattern

Easy Striped Crochet Baby Hat Pattern

If you missed my latest blog post, I recently worked on my first knit baby blanket. You can see it here. I was so blown away by the response to it, that I decided to work up a crochet hat to go along with it.

Knowing how to crochet a hat is so simple, and crochet baby hats are always fun to work on. I know you’ll love this crochet baby hat as much as I do.

This cute pattern is made using a simple design with two stripes at the bottom and a textured border. I like to use light shades such as mint and grey for mine, but you can choose any colors.

These crocheted hats use a series of basic crochet stitches. They all add texture and style to this otherwise simple baby hat crochet pattern.  

This is a great crochet newborn hat. I made the knit blanket for my daughter’s gymnastics coach who is expecting. This hat baby beanie would be the perfect addition to my gift.

If you’re just learning how to crochet a baby hat, making some for a local charity is great practice. I like to donate baby caps to local hospitals and women’s shelters to help out.
This newborn hat is made out of Berroco Vintage DK weight yarn. It’s smooth and silky, perfect for a baby’s soft skin. It’s an acrylic wool blend and has a polished finish.

These baby boy hats or girl hats can be made for 0-3 months or 3-6 months. It’s really easy to adjust the size. They’re the perfect baby winter hat to keep little ones cozy this season.
