Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!

  1. When you finish with Row 3 do you continue doing row 3 till your desired length or do you start with Row 2 ?

    1. I love that my visitors keep me on my toes! I thought for sure I had added the multiples information. So sorry Tracey! It's multiple of 12 plus 4 for base chain!

      Happy Hooking!

    2. Tracy I'm making a scarf and I did 200 single crochet, so maybe that would also work for an afghan.

  4. If row 3 is used to complete pattern how do you sk ch2sp in remainder of rows. There's not a ch2 in row 3 to skip?

    1. The ch 2 is right after the 5 dc shell you make in the first dc of the shell below in previous row. :)

  5. I love this but am making for older people as lap robes I think a baby would get caught in it maybe not but with the large spaces their feet or hands could get cauight.but a beautiful pattern like this is sure enjoyed by the seniors!

  6. This may be a dumb question, but I am learning to crochet. At the end of the 2nd row, are you supposed to crochet 4 DC in EACH of the last 3 sc?

    1. Diane,
      Yes, it's a dc in each of the last 3 sc, keeping with the pattern you see throughout the row.

  7. I have the same question and I'm not a beginner. I keep on reading the pattern over and over and I just don't get it. Please explain, I would love to make this blanket!!

    1. Newbie,
      What area are you struggling with? You can send me an email at missed . stitches (at) yahoo. (remove the spaces and don't forget the period between missed and stitches.)

  8. Do you add 2 ch in between the 4dc in the last 3sc on row 2? Also are we working in the round? Something just isn't quite right. I am ending up wit a rounded edge following the directions both attempting to work in the round and turning. Please advise!

    1. Only thing worked in the round is the border after you're all finished. No, you don't add ch2. You want it to look just like the rows above and below it.

  10. I HEART your Lacy Baby afghan. I can't wait to purchase some yarn and get started on her. Unfortunately right now we are packing up the house and getting ready to move. Hubby says it's not a good time to buy MORE yarn. BooHoo! I'll be starting this as soon as my crochet chair is in place in the new location.
    Such a BEAUTIFUL blanket you created and your color choices are stunning.
    As always, in appreciation of all that you do for us ~~ Bobbie :)

  11. Love this pattern, but since I am running low on yarn I decided to make a scarf doing 2oo single crochet instead of 100. It is looking so good and I had no problems with the pattern. thanks!

  12. I'm in the middle of crocheting this pattern. The person who posted the pattern crocheted it in panels of 66 chs each panel. I decided to ch 132, and used Red Heart soft white for 12 rows, and 12 rows of pale yellow, topped with 12 rows of soft white. Can't wait to complete it for a person who does not know it's coming.

  13. Finished this this past weekend. It turned out beautiful. It was quick and I can't wait to try several more in different color combinations. I used a single shell/scallop for the border.

    1. I am just starting this pattern... which I love for my soon to arrive great niece. I am having a problem with the 4 SC that are skipped in the 2nd row. I am following the pattern but the edge doesn't lay flat or stay straight because of the skipped 4 stitches. Wondering why 4 stitches are skipped and not, say, two.

      Delete
    2. Hey DragonMommie!

      Thanks for trying out one of my patterns! As for your question, it is correct to skip 4 sc. Remember that before you made the shell, you didn't chain any- you just skipped 2 sc which the first 2 dc of the shell take up that space. After the shell, you are chaining 2, which takes up those extra 2 sc you're skipping.

  18. Thank you for making this pattern!

    What is your email? I'd like to send you a picture of mine that I made from your pattern.

  20. I have looked through 100s of patterns for my new grand baby's blanket and I fell in love wit yours I'm confused about one part in row 3 after you place 5dc in 1st dc of the shell then you CH 2 do you skip any stitches or do you go in the next stitch to start the 1dc in each of the next 5 stitches I'm not rushing but I'm ready to continue you wonderful pattern

  21. I believe that you * sk ch2sp before the 5 dc in the first dc of shell.
