One thing I love about crochet is the ability to gift it to others. I’m constantly making gifts for others. But most recently, I wanted to tell you about a crochet baby blanket I made for some family friends.
I found out that the couple who have been helping to clean our Airbnb suite was going to be taking a break. They had a great reason – they’re having a baby!
Crochet baby blanket patterns are so versatile. They come in different sizes and colors and shapes. That’s why they’re such great presents.
This pattern is perfect if you don’t know how to crochet a blanket. It’s very beginner-friendly. This easy crochet baby blanket is super fast to make.
Hence why it’s called “Done in a Day.” In under 24 hours, my project was complete and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out – especially with yarn that I already had and in such a short amount of time.
It was the perfect baby blanket crochet pattern for me because I only had a couple of days to prepare something. It was important that we show our appreciation and I decided a baby blanket crochet gift was the perfect way to do so.
This chunky blanket is about as easy as it gets. As long as you can chain and double crochet, you can make this baby blanket. Feel free to change up the colors and customize this for either gender or to go with the nursery decor.
