As soon as I found out I was pregnant, I couldn’t wait to get started on all the DIY baby projects! I ended up waiting until I was about 18 weeks along and decided to start with an easy crochet blanket. This is a very quick and affordable project using Bernat baby blanket yarn (I went with the “little cosmos” color). I used two 10.5oz balls of yarn and a 10mm hook.
I didn’t use a pattern and just decided to work in single crochet to avoid having too many holes for baby fingers to get caught in. I ended up chaining 60 (but you can reduce or add more chains if you’d like a smaller or bigger blanket!) and just worked in single crochet for 66 rows. This project took me less than a week to complete, the yarn is pretty bulky so that blanket works up pretty nicely!
The finished blanket is 32″x 32″. It’s very soft and thick and would also make a nice baby mat!
