Made with DK weight yarn, this blanket is delicate and light. Pair it with a stuffed toy and It will make a perfect baby shower gift.


The lacy stitch pattern uses only basic crochet stitches like double crochet, single crochet and chain stitch making it a perfect project for beginners. The interlocking stitch pattern makes a beautiful design without much effort.


You can make it in one single color or use two or three colors like me. You can experiment with the width of the stripes and make it your own.


My finished blanket is 32 inches wide and 38 inches long but you can easily size it up or down to suit your requirements.

1. DK weight yarn in 3 colors. I used colors White, Soft Gray and Cotton Candy from Loops and Threads Snuggly Wuggly yarn.

2. Hook I (5.5mm). Use any size hook to attain gauge.

3. Tapestry needle to weave in the ends.



Finished Size

The finished crochet baby blanket is 32 inches wide and 38 inches long. You can make it any size by adjusting the starting chain. You will need more yarn if you want to make your blanket bigger.




I used 1 skein of each color. Each skein had 446 yards.



Stitch Abbreviations

Ch- chain

dc- double crochet

sc-single crochet

sk- skip




2 pattern repeats is 4 and quarter inches long


CH 42 and follow the pattern below until your work is 5 inches. Measure for gauge.

2 pattern repeats= 4-1/4 inches


Crochet Pattern

Ch 138. You can increase the width of the crochet baby blanket by chaining any multiple of 8+10. Each 8 chs will add about 2 inches to the width. About 4 inches will be reduced from the width once the blanket grows and this has been taken into account while calculating the initial chain.




1. Row 1 completed with ch-3 and ch-5 loops


Row 1: 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next ch, *(ch 5, sk 5, 1 sc in next, ch 3, sk 1, 1 sc in next), repeat from * to last 7 chs, ch 5, sk 5, 1 sc in last 2 chs. Turn.——17 ch-5 loops




2. Row 2 with shells shown in contrasting color for clarity



Row 2( dc row): Ch 3 ( counts as a dc), 1 dc in next sc, *(5 dc in next ch-5 loop, ch 2, 1 sc in next ch-3 loop, ch 2), repeat from * and after 5 dc in last ch-5 loop, 1 dc in last 2 sts. Turn.———89 dc+ 16 sc




3. Row 3 completed



Row 3: Ch 1, 1 sc in same st, 1 sc in next st, *(ch 5, sk 5 dc, 1 sc in next ch-2 space, ch 3, 1 sc in next ch-2 space)*, repeat from * to last 7 dc, ch 5, sk 5 dc, 1 sc in next st, 1 sc on top of beginning ch-3. Turn.——17 ch-5 loops


Repeat Rows 2 and 3 for the pattern. I changed colors after every 9 repeats of the dc row and had only 1 white stripe in the blanket.


To change colors at the end of a dc row, start working your last dc as usual and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, pull through the new color to complete your dc.

Hi,can you explain to this 70 year old crocheter what multiple of 8+10 means?


Sunday 11th of October 2020

Hi JoAllen, First chain any multiple of 8 like 18, 24, 32 or say 48. Then add an extra 10 chains to it.
