Easy Pink Clouds Baby Blanket – Free Pattern

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

It only has three stitches, single, half double and triple. This chunky blanket works up fast too.

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

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

I think the pink color would be great for a girl nursery. It would be great for boy a too using the color blue dream yarn.

There are lots of different colors of Bernat blanket yarn, perfect for a little boy or girl. Most you can easily scale up for a throw too.

The chunky yarn is a chenille style, so it is fuzzy. My little girl keeps wanting to rub her face against the blanket.

How to Make a Pink Clouds Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

Supplies

  • Scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • N, 9 mm crochet hook
  • 2 – 10.5 ball of Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn – Pink Dreams or any super bulky gauge 6 yarn (15. 5 oz or 336 yd

I used the 5.3 oz of the white but I didn’t have any extra so you might want to stick with the larger size ball.

  • 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.
