Easy Striped Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern

I am incredibly excited to share this post with you today! I’m no stranger to crocheting a baby blanket. But this time I tried something different.  Introducing my very first knitting pattern, the Easy Striped Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern.

As most of you already know, I’m a crocheter through and through but lately I’ve been feeling a call to try knitting. I tried to knit years ago but I found it slow and hard to hold. It was also ridiculously challenging whenever I made a mistake.

But what I love about knit baby blanket patterns is the beautiful fabric it produces. I’ve found myself drooling over the texture and draping of knit patterns many, many times. I decided to try to put my former bad experience behind me and try afresh with this hand knit blanket.

After a couple of months playing around with various knitting styles, I ended up landing on combined knitting which is just that, a combination of Western and Eastern knitting styles. It feels much more natural to me as a crocheter as I hold the yarn in my left hand and the hand movements seem smaller and with less motion.

Once I finally settled on combined knitting, I had the confidence to try to make my first knitting pattern. I just had to decide what that would be.

As luck would have it, I haven’t had a reason to make a baby blanket in quite a long time but I recently found out that my daughter’s amazing gymnastics coach is expecting a baby in the spring.

My first thought of course went to thinking of a great new crochet baby blanket pattern. But then I paused and considered what it would be like to challenge myself with a knit baby blanket instead.

I’m not going to lie. I was intimidated to start this process. I even considered choosing one of the many free knitting patterns for baby blankets online. After a little hesitation, I decided it was worth the challenge and started envisioning my knit blanket pattern design. And I am so glad I did.

I really outdid myself with this free knitting pattern, especially since it’s my first one ever. The pattern has a tricolor striped design. The striped fabric is surrounded by a textured border created using the seed stitch. But what I love most about this baby afghan is the beautiful drape it has.

I put a lot of time thinking up what yarn to make this easy baby blanket with. I finally settled on Berroco Vintage Dk weight yarn. It’s an acrylic wool blend yarn that’s perfect for a finer gauge. I noticed a lot of baby knitting projects were textured and chunky. And I wanted this baby blanket to have a more polished look, making this DK weight perfect. It’s even machine washable which is always a good choice for a baby blanket.

Striped Pattern with Matching Balls

Crochet can be worked in two ways: in rows or in rings. A flat item, such as a blanket, is created with rows of stitches worked in one direction, then turned and worked back. Spherical and round pieces, such as the ball, are made by crocheting rounds of stitches in a continuous circle; the work is never turned. These patterns from Martha Stewart are a matching set of a blanket pattern and fun crocheted balls for baby to work on their eye-hand coordination.

This elegant and dainty blanket uses the petal stitch! We love the antique and classic look of this stitch. Paired with the perfect peach yarn the petal stitch really pops. Separating each color with grey and white works well to set them apart and give the illusion of beautiful little daisies. The stitch is made by crocheting into the tops of clusters, sometimes into chain spaces, finding single crochet spaces at the end of the rows sometimes, and other times finding the tops of turning chains. if you are ready to learn a few new things but have the basics mastered, jump in!
