How to Make a Color Stripe Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Supplies

Color Stripe Baby Blanket

Abbreviations – US Terms

  • yo – yarn over
  • sc – single crochet
  • hdc – half double crochet
  • dc – double crochet stitch

You can make a larger or smaller blanket by using a multiple of 3 for the chain.

I found that some of the skeins of yarn don’t have enough yarn in the color to make several stripes. You will want to check the length and sort your skeins so the colors do not repeat when you change to the next skein.

  • 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

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.
