Pattern Details





Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • chains, single crochet, half-double crochet, double crochet and slip stitches

Pattern Description:

This pattern is for a 30 inches square baby blanket, the perfect size to keep your little one warm in her car seat or stroller. Or use it to tuck around your legs and settle in with a good book on the couch.

The pattern stitch is not complicated and would be perfect for a new crocheter who is ready to tackle a larger project. The blanket works up quickly and can easily be personalized with various shades of your favorite color - or it would make a lovely gift for just about anyone!

Although the pattern is written with a sport weight yarn in mind, you can just as easily make it using any yarn you would like - keeping in mind that if you use a thicker yarn you should also use a larger hook and the blanket will be bigger.


14 stitches in pattern (2 shells & 2 single crochet) = 4 inches; 7 rows in shell pattern = 4 inches

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 30 inches square (easily made larger)


  • 20 ounces total of sport weight yarn (cotton used for sample)

You Will Also Need:

  • Yarn need for weaving in ends
  • Crochet hook size H (5.0mm)
