Effortless Baby Blanket: Reboot


Happy Sunday everyone! Over the last several weeks, I've been working on this blanket as a "reboot" to my Effortless Baby Blanket (aka Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket). I found this yarn at my local Walmart and decided to give it a shot because I thought it looked very appealing.



As you can see, I did the stripe layout very different for this one and it's because of how the grey yarn has a gradient. I wanted to work with that fluctuation as best I could.



I also added shells into the last row of the blanket to make it even since it does create a sort of jagged look with the clusters. I then added this awesome border, alternating the gradient yarn and white. I got this idea from Repeat Crafter Me, using her YouTube video.
I think this border is stunning, but a bit tedious. You'll see why when you watch the video.


For this blanket, I used the same pattern as written for my Effortless Baby Blanket. But instead of stopping for "baby" size, I kept going to make it a lapghan.
I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn in White, Red and Anthracite




You can find my FREE pattern for my Effortless Baby Blanket below.



Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you like my creations!

When it comes to crocheting practical items, potholders are a popular go-to! Make these simple crochet potholders using my easy pattern! I make mine double-thick using the overcasting stitch. Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket. The slanted double crochet clusters make for a weighted blanket with soft bobbles. At first glance, the blanket seems complex but it's really super easy! Make one in beautiful baby blues or choose your own color palette!

Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

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!




Create this light-weight, wonderful crochet blanket in a matter of hours! Slanted shell clusters with small blocks of double crochets in a lacy form make this a super easy blanket to whip up! Use it was a great tummy-time blanket or make it longer for the perfect lounge chair lapghan on a cool Summer night! You can make it in the colors shown here, or use your favorite "cake" yarn for non-stop crocheting fun!
