Easy Blue Clouds Baby Blanket – Free Pattern

Looking for a soft baby gift? A gift that is soft and practical but not too hard to make? This easy free blue clouds baby blanket crochet pattern will be a great project to try.

This chunky crochet baby blanket pattern only has 3 crochet stitches, single, double and 3 double crochet together, which makes the bobble. This chunky crochet baby blanket works up fast too.

I was looking for my next project and wanted to make a soft chunky baby blanket with puffy looking clouds. I thought Bernat blanket yarn would be a great choice.

It is a bulky gauge 6 chenille yarn so the chunky blanket will work up fast. The blue multi-color yarn is great because you get lots colors without having to change colors.

I think the blue color would be great for a boy nursery. It would be great for a little girl too using the color pink dream yarn Bernat Blanket Yarn, which I used to make this pink and white girl blanket.

There are lots of different colors of Bernat blanket chenille yarn, perfect for a little boy or girl. The colors are available in solids, ombers, multi-colored, and self-striping colors.

Most patterns you can easily scale up for a throw too. The Bernat Blanket yarn is a chenille style, so it is fuzzy. My little girl keeps wanting to rub her face against the blanket.

  • Baby Blanket: 29 in x 35 in – a great size for a new baby with room to grow (73.66 cm x 88.9 cm)
  • Swaddling Blanket: 40 in x 40 in- for wrapping a newborn up tight usually made of gauze or flannel (101.6 cm) but a lightweight yarn would work
  • Crib: 45 in x 60 in (114.3 cm x 152.4 cm) – a great blanket size for growing into, toddlers, or a throw for older children

Of course, these sizes are just standard blanket sizes and you wan make them to fix your needs and size. My size choice also depends on how much yarn I have left and the repeat of the pattern.

I hope this helps you decide what size of baby blanket to crochet.
