Did you scroll all this way to get facts about baby blanket crochet?
The most common baby blanket crochet material is cotton.
Repeat this row until blanket measures about 40″ long. In fact, anyone with even the most basic crochet skills could make this blanket without a tutorial. It’s just double crochet throughout, switching between black and white. If you can do that one stitch (and switch colours), you’ve got this!For me, that’s an ideal characteristic in a blanket.
I want a blanket to flow over me like a warm, full-body hug.
I consider just right size for snuggling on the couch with some popcorn and a movie. It won’t take you a million years to finish but it’s definitely big enough to keep your feet warm or drape around your arms and shoulders comfortably. Each stripe uses up (almost) exactly one small ball, so you’re not left with a bunch of useless scraps. And the small balls might be all you can find, as they’re readily available all over the place.

I want this blanket to be able to withstand dozens of washes.
I prefer to stitch into the bottom of the chain, so you get a nice finished edge at the bottom that looks just like the top. If you’re using the small balls, this should pretty much use of the whole thing, leaving a generous tail to weave in. If you’re working from a large ball, trim yarn, leaving about 6 inches to weave in later. Repeat, alternating between black and white, until you’ve used up all your yarn.
I thought white on the end might get grubby-looking quicker.
I love seeing that other people have done for their beginner projects.
I also have not used cotton before, so it was a first for me.
I did 17 stripes, and ran out of the off-white and needed one more small ball to finish the last stripe. The center will be horizontal black and white stripes and on either end will be vertical black and white stripes. Get the free pattern via becomingpeculiar.
