Make a crochet baby blanket with a beautiful stitch and a crochet as you go blanket border. This blanket is very easy to adjust to any size.
Below you will find the complete pattern and instructional photos for the All in One Crochet baby blanket pattern. You will also find all the materials, stitches, gauge, and sizing information.
A One Skein Crochet Baby Blanket?
No, I will not call this a one skein blanket. I actually use just a little over half of this skein, but the Caron Anniversary Cake Yarn is not your typical skein of yarn. It is 35 ozs of yarn which is the same as 4.5 skeins of a normal Caron Chunky Cake skein. But it was still a fun yarn to leave on the kitchen table for my husband to find.
Make your own size Crochet Blanket
This is a very easy pattern to adjust. Just chain any odd number of chains, work the bottom border, work as many middle rows as you would like, and then finish up the top border. It is just that easy. I did my best to give some recommendations on the starting chain, row count and yarn needed for different sizes of crochet blankets.
The Premium Ad-Free PDF Pattern
Below you will find the free pattern with all the instructional photos and videos needed to complete the pattern, but I am also aware that several of us like to crochet on the couch, in the car, or in bed with a printout of the pattern. This is why I also offer a nicely formatted large font PDF version of the pattern that can be purchased on Etsy or Ravelry. You can print the pattern and take it on the go with you or tuck it into your project bag.

-Written in US terms.

– Row counts will restart in the last section since the row number will vary by size.
