Granny Square Picnic Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Granny Square Kid’s picnic blanket is just the pattern to create a cute, snuggly blanket that you can use so many ways. Toss it over the back of an armchair for decorative purposes, bring it out for a picnic, or, like the name says – give it to your kids.

You make this pattern by working in squares, which makes it a fun project to take with you on the go. You don’t have to carry the whole blanket with you, but can carry it in squares until you’re ready to work all the squares together in to the finished project.

We chose a vibrant pop of orange that’s muted by the creamy white tones weaved in with the other squares. Get bold with your color choices, or just pick your favorite colors and stick to them.

We can’t wait until you crochet this blanket. The process of making the blanket is a blast, and we want to share the excitement with you.

Star Stitch Striped Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

| Crochet

Star Stitch Striped Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern - this baby blanket is so sweet, you'll want to make one for your next baby or grandbaby. Simply switch up the colors to fit with any nursery decor. #crochetpattern #crochetblanket #crochetbabyblanket #crochetforbaby #crochetaddict #freecrochetpatternStar Stitch Striped Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

This month’s stitch of the month is the star stitch and what better way to showcase this gorgeous stitch than using it in a blanket. This baby blanket is so sweet, you’ll want to make one for your next baby or grandbaby. Simply switch up the colors to fit with any nursery decor.

While this stitch has a couple of minor challenging aspects, once you get through the first few rows, you’ll find yourself flying through the rest of it. And to keep it simple, we’ve used a basic single crochet for the border. Once you’ve completed one blanket you’ll find yourself looking for more babies who could use a cozy blanket to cuddle up with.

This Cross-Over stitch baby blanket crochet pattern is super easy to make, once you get started, you can practically make it with your eyes closed. #crochetpattern #crochetblanket #ilovecrochet #crochetaddict #crochetgiftCross-Over Block Stitch Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

One of my favorite crochet projects to work on is the humble and sweet baby blanket. Not only are baby blankets adorable, they’re also super quick and easy to make. Also, they mean the world to the parents who receive your beautiful gift and will likely treasure it for years to come. I had a family member give us a handmade crochet baby blanket when my daughter was born and it was one of the most precious gifts that we received.

This Cross-Over stitch blanket is super easy to make and like many of my patterns, once you get started, you can practically make it with your eyes closed.

P.S. If you love working with the cross-over stitch, check out my popular cross-over stitch infinity scarf.
