Easy ‘Done in a Day’ Crochet Baby Blanket

| Crochet

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.

Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket

Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket – a great crochet pattern for beginners.

There’s still a nip in the air at this is the time of year, so it’s a perfect time to grab a cozy blanket and cuddle up on the couch with a good book.

I was getting a bit bored of always making baby hats so I decided I needed a new crochet project. When my daughter Noelle saw me looking at blanket ideas she begged me to crochet her a blanket.  I knew Noelle would really enjoy and appreciate a blanket that I made just for her.

I formulated a plan and took Noelle to the store to pick out some yarn. She picked out this fun and colorful yarn by Bernat that’s super chunky and has great colors.  I also picked up a size P/11.5mm crochet hook and went to town on my newest crochet project.

This blanket was inspired by Melanie Ham’s “Easy Beginner Crochet Baby Blanket Tutorial” on YouTube. 

This easy crochet blanket pattern works up really quickly. I’m not a fast crocheter and it took me a little less than a week to finish it off.

Noelle loved the finished crochet blanket and uses it all the time now. It’s great because it’s cozy without being too warm. I’ve used this blanket on occasion myself and it really is the best of both worlds.

My finished blanket is 44″ x 55″ which is the perfect size for my daughter.

Easy Cozy Crochet Blanket Pattern 

Materials:

  • Hook: U.S. P/11.5mm
  • Size 6 Super Bulky Weight Yarn – Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn in Peachy  – 4 x 300 grams balls (approx. 840 yards total) 
  • Scissors

Directions:

Ch = chain, sl st = slip stitch, dc = double crochet (U.S. terminology)

If you choose to make this blanket smaller or larger, for the initial chain, make in multiples of 6. For example 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72. etc.

Ch 60.

Row 1: In the 4th stitch from the hook, *2dc, skip a ch,* repeat until at end of row with 1 dc in the last chain. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 3. 1 dc in first ch, *skip 1 st, 2 dc in the next st* and repeat until the end of the row with 1dc in the top of the turning chain (making sure the 2 dc should be in between the “v” stitches from the first row). Turn.

Row 3 – 50: Repeat Row 2

Fasten off.

ADDING FRINGE

When adding the fringe the crochet blanket, cut the yarn to about double the length you want the fringe to be (mine were 8 inches each total length). Fold your yarn in half and take the side with the loop and push it through the gap on each side of the 2 dc along the border of your blanket. Then get the side with the loose ends of the yarn and pull them tightly through the loop to secure. Continue until both ends of your blanket have fringe across the entire width of the blanket.
