Easy Double Crochet Baby Blanket

I’m not sure about you, but all four of my children are what I call “Blankie Babies.”  They sleep with them, eat with them, and yes, want to take them EVERYWHERE we go! Because taking a full size afghan grocery shopping is not very convenient, I created the On-The-Go Baby Blanket pattern.  It is the perfect size to take along but is still soft and cuddly for your little one.  You should also check out this adorable Sweet Chevron Pattern Crochet Baby Blanket…another sweet blanket my readers love!

Some children depend on pacifiers, some live for stuffed animals, some can’t go without their blankies.  All four of my children have an obsessive connection with their blankies.  We can’t get out of the house without them.  Somehow, my three-year-old son has claimed a full-size couch afghan as his “blankie” and it travels everywhere with us.  Church, groceries stores, walks to the park…EVERYWHERE! 

I quickly decided to create this On-The-Go Crochet Baby Blanket for our fourth child.  It still gives her the comfort and security she loves (and those perfect holes to slip her fingers into), but I do not have to immediately toss it into the washer when we get home because it was drug across Walmart’s floor.  

This pattern is not only fast, but it is also very simple for beginners.  Also, keep in mind that the colors can be varied depending on the look you want to achieve.  I am an absolute fan of Simply Soft Yarn and chose Robin’s Egg and Soft Grey Heather for this particular project.  Perhaps finding out the nursery theme would help you determine the perfect colors to make this great a baby shower gift.  Check out my free printable pattern below to create one for a little peanut in your life. My On-The-Go Crochet Baby Blanket use double crochet stitches and is so easy to make. This simple pattern is perfect for beginners!
