Herringbone Stripe Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

Looking for a soft baby gift? A gift that is soft but not too hard to make? This herringbone stripe baby blanket will be a great project to try.

It only has 2 stitches, double crochet herringbone and single crochet. This chunky blanket works up fast too.

I was looking for my next project and wanted to make a soft chunky baby blanket with using Bernat Blanket Yarn stripes chenille yarn. I love the color of this coral bell yarn.

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

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

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