This crochet baby blanket is about as easy as it gets. As long as you can chain and double crochet, you can whip up one of these blankets in no time flat.

Easy ‘Done in a Day’ Crochet Baby Blanket

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.

    I”m new to this. What does “made in multiples of two” mean?

    • Jamey
      September 12, 2017 at 12:38 PM (4 years ago)

      Hi Jessie,

      “Made in multiples of two” is handy if you’d like to make the blanket larger or smaller in size. For example, say you want to make the blanket a little smaller, you could chain 52 stitches instead of 66. You can pick any number of chains to start with as long as it’s an even number.

    This project is so timely for me! I’m a very basic crocheter, but was just thinking that I’d like to make a blanket for our little one (arriving late October/early November). This looks absolutely perfect! Thanks!

    Beautiful blanket.Thanks for sharing. Could 2 strands of yarn held together work?

    • Jamey
      September 15, 2017 at 1:25 PM (4 years ago)

      Thanks Tammie! Yes, I think you could totally use 2 strands of yarn held together but you’d likely want them a light weight size 3 yarn OR you could adjust the stitch count to be maybe 6-8 stitches or so less to accommodate for the thickness. I’m a firm believer in giving things a try – that’s one of the beautiful things about crochet, there are so many options. Good luck and have fun crocheting the blanket.

        I cant seem to get my sides to stay even. Following the directions, my blanket is angling in on both ends. This happens to be quite often on patterns with flat edges like.this. I started doing 2DC at the last DC from the row below and that seems to help but not sure what I am missing

        • Marta
          September 18, 2019 at 12:33 AM (2 years ago)

          Count the number of dc in each row. Each has to have the same number of stitches as your stating chain. Use pieces of yarn, safety pins or anything available to you to mark stitch. Go to your first role and mark every 10th double crochet, also mark your last stitch so you know exactly which one it is. Just like you guys place a marker on your beginning chain 3 of each row. This happens from having to many or to few stitches in each row.

          The pattern is misleading bc you can interpret between the space betwern the groups 2 different ways but the way she meant is to make 2DCs in the space between the DCs of the previous row. So your DCs should ask line up. And you will have 1 DC at the beginning and the end of the rows.

    Wow, your blanket looks great!
    I’d love to try it myself, but the part “dc twice into the space between the next group of 2 dcs. *Go to the next group of 2 dc’s and dc twice into the space between*” is not clear to me, what does that mean?

    Hi Jamey,

    I can’t get a full grasp on Row 2.

    Are you dc in between the two dc from Row 1, or is the dc to go in the gab between two sets of dc in Row 1?

    On the third row, (you have ended on a single dc) after turning and chaining three, do you make 2dc into the space following the DC that the chain three came off of or skip as far as to after the first pair of DC in that space? I thought you meant the second option but that seems like it won’t leave a straight edge.

    Thank you!!!

    January 7, 2018 at 7:26 PM (4 years ago)

    I’m a little confused by the directions for the 2nd row. When you say ” Skip the first dc and dc twice into the space between the next group of 2 dcs. *Go to the next group of 2 dc’s and dc twice into the space between” Are there any pictures of this step? I’m a bit confused about which space I am to do the 2 dc’s in. In the first part of the sentence you say to dc twice in the space between the next group of 2 dcs Doe that mean I am to dc in the skipped chain? Also in the last part you say “go to the next group of 2 dc’s and dc twice in the space between” does this mean the space in between the 2 double crochets? I’m not sure where the 1st and 2nd “between” spaces are. Thanks!

    • Lynn
      September 2, 2019 at 8:19 AM (2 years ago)

      I have the same issue. Are we supposed to chain 1 in between the DC in row 1 so we have a stitch in between for row 2?

    The directions say to purchase 6 skeins of yarn-if you are making it as pictured (3 colors), what is the break down of each color? For example, 4 white and 1 each of the contrast colors OR 2 of each color?? Thank you.

    I’m anxious to get started since I’ve spent months making scarves for our Veterans group.

  26. Donna Helman
    February 7, 2018 at 8:34 AM (4 years ago)

    I was reading over this pattern,like I always do before making it. When I noticed that when I got down to Row 41-43 white,is there supposed to be 3 rows of white here or 4 rows of white? And then the very last rows 48-52 is there supposed to be 4 rows here or 5 rows of white here? So I should it have been rows 41-44 whith white and then rows 45-46 taupe, rows 47-48 denim,and rows 49-52 in white. I need to know this before I make it! Thank you very much Donna Helman.

    This is my first ever time crocheting, and my blanket looks very holey compared to the pictures. I checked with Nan and she seems to think I’m doing it right and nothing is too loose, but my blanket looks like a giant granny square. What could I be doing wrong?

    On row 2 the two DC in the space are you doing a single chain in between of just moving to the next space and doing 2dc?

    July 21, 2018 at 8:05 AM (4 years ago)

    WWhen you get to the end of the row do we put a dc into the top of the chain 3? Just wondering if the ch3 counts as a DC.

    July 26, 2018 at 3:49 AM (4 years ago)

    I bought the same exact yarn as you used in the pattern, which is a wonderful yarn it is so soft (perfect for baby). I have a question, I have crocheted about 6 rows and when I crochet in the space between the 2 dc it makes a hole, and when I look closely at your pattern I don’t see a hole after every two dcs.

    Hi thank you for posting this this is a great blanket for a beginner. was very easy to follow as I am only just learning crochet. the only thing I did wrong was I did not have the size hook that you mentioned in the pattern so I had to use a 6 mm hook which has made my blanket more chunky. Is this usually the case my pattern looks really close together compared to yours thank you Fran

    I am just learning to crochet as rehab from brain injury – so far I’ve learned the single stitch and 1.5 stitch – I made an afghan for my first niece’s first baby (and the world turns!) she was 1 year old at our wedding 34 years ago. single stitch 5 weight yarn 40×40 so it’s a floor play rug! I think it weighs more than the baby LOL now I’m working on a matching 30×40 afghan in 4 weight 1.5 stitch

    I’m searching for outlets for crocheting but due to the brain injury I lost my job – I know there are charities where you donate your projects – if anyone knows where there are charities that supply yarn to the people doing the crocheting.

    Crocheting could provide a wonderful opportunity to brian rehab, depression or to retired people on fixed income that would love to donate to charities. As an aside getting out and doing the shopping and matching and planning is also part of the rehab – so just getting supplies in the mail would not be as beneficial – if one was homebound perhaps that would put another angle to it and home shopping would be best. But forcing myself to leave the house is best for my rehab.

    Hi Jamey,

    I’m new to crocheting and started teaching myself through Youtube since I have a granddaughter on the way LOL.. If I use the Barnet Baby Blanket yarn..which is a weight 6 how long should my initial chain be with this pattern?

    And since I am a beginner… would this yarn also look ok if I HDC the whole thing? If so what would you suggest my starting chain be if I half doub crochet with the Barnet yarn? thank you.

    Beautiful blanket! I accidentally purchased size 4 yarn instead of 5. I chained 100 instead of 66. Any other changes I should make? I’m using size J hook. Thank you for the pattern!

    Instead of changing colors every two rows or so, use one of the semf-striking yar s. They are beautiful.

    Hi I’m having trouble with the end of the row and it’s ending up sloped…. is it one double crochet into the top of the chain 3 from the previous row? I’m not sure why it is sloping in. 🙁

    I am using a blanket bernat yarn. I hope this will still be okay with the 8 mm hook. Baby is due in 2 to 3 weeks and this looks like a wonderful pattern to follow. Thanks.

    Hi! I found your pattern on a Google search and wanted to thank you for sharing! It is very easy to read and understand.

    I did have question, though, as I was crafting the blanket. On row 2, I noticed my stitches were bunching together and wondered if there should be a chain between the 2 double crochet stitches before you go to the next space?

    I am using Bernat’s baby blanket yarn and an N hook, so could it be a difference in bulk?

    Thanks for any help, and double thanks again for sharing your time and gorgeous blanket pattern for free!

    Do you leave the colors attached and just pick them back up the next time they are used or do you cut them off each time you start a new color?

    I’m doing something wrong. When I turn, I skip the first DC and DC into the next space, I end up with fewer spaces as I go.

    Hello! This blanket is so cute! I’m in the process of making it, but I’ve had to restart a couple of times because I’m not understanding it completely! When doing the first row, I’m ending it with 2 dc in the last stitch. And moving forward the rows kept decreasing… can you possibly help me understand what I’m doing wrong? Thank you! 🙂

    I am anxious to try it…it sounds easy..as I am just learning to read patterns…I do pretty well if someone shows me but I know all these stitches ? so I am going to try it. But I will be using the same color yarn…abrogate pastel colors as I already have the yarn. Hopefully it will work and I don’t have to worry about changing colors! Thank yoi.

    Woohoo, finally figured out what I was doing wrong after reading this 50x and several attempts. I’ll bet the rest of you struggling was making the same mistake I was. Row 2, the 2 dc go in the middle of the 2 dc from previous row. I was working the space between the sets of docs which was wrong. Hopefully this helps!

      Thanks for the tip. Do you carry the yarn up the sides when changing colours or do cut the yarn and weave in as you go?

    Hi Jamey this blanket is amazing!! I’ve never crocheted anything before so I’m unsure what it means when its says to do a “2 double crochet” . I’m really looking forward to trying this

  100. Cathy
    January 7, 2020 at 8:06 PM (2 years ago)

    Just to clarify: does the chain 3 at the end of each row count as a DC, and is that the “first DC” we are skipping at the beginning of the new row?

  101. Debbie Thompson
    January 11, 2020 at 12:51 PM (2 years ago)

    The pattern doesn’t give you a breakdown of skeins needed per color, does anyone know?

    Hallo Jamey. Thanks for this great pattern. It is really awesome!
    My first few rows are wobbly. What have I done wrong? I have 198 stitches. I have counted the last row and it looks like I have 6 stitches short now, but still i curves. It looks like I have too many stitches in the middle somewhere. My work looks like a upside down smile. Wish I can add the photo.

    Hi Jamey,

    I am making this blanket using 8 ply (DK) and a 4.0mm hook (using a 5.0mm hook for starting chain).

    As I am using thinner yarn how many chain do I need to add to make a baby blanket. Or what is for calculation to work out how big my inished blanket will be as I am using thinner yarn and hook?

    Found this just over a week ago, looking for something to make quickly for a family member due any time. It’s a girl so I used pink, white, and multi-pastel. Tweaked the pattern a bit as the largest hook I have is a K. The baby yarn I have is thin so my beginning chain was 100 with 54 rows. I also added a border. First with chain 3s all around the blanket (crossing the 2 DCs at the top and bottom, and crossing each row on the sides, with a SC between). Then a small shell stitch border with 3 DCs in each chain 3, with a SC between. ☺

    • Amanda Gee
      August 10, 2020 at 6:45 AM (1 year ago)

      How did you add the border, what did you do at the corners? And what does crossing mean?

  107. Amanda Gee
    August 10, 2020 at 6:43 AM (1 year ago)

    This was a great pattern, completed it in a single night. Now that I am done I’d love to add a simple border, do you have any suggestions?

    Thank you
