Simple Crochet Baby Girl Blanket – Free Pattern

Looking to crochet a unique baby blanket for your little one or do you need a quick baby shower gift? If so, I’ve got a fun free crochet baby girl blanket pattern that’s made using two different stitch combos.

It’s simple, works up incredibly fast, and is totally beginner-friendly! It’s similar to my modern striped crochet baby blanket pattern, but just a tad different. So if you like that pattern, I think you’ll enjoy this one as well.

This free crochet blanket pattern is made using a lightweight number 3 yarn and a 4.0 mm hook. You can continue to read through for the inspiration behind my latest design or scroll down for the pattern.

Free Crochet Baby Girl Blanket Pattern

My latest free pattern is a simple crochet baby blanket. It’s an easy-to-make crochet blanket that has two different stitch patterns. The first stitch used for the pattern is the Suzette stitch.

I love using the Suzette stitch and use it whenever I can in my patterns. It’s an easy one-row repeat stitch that’s made using single crochet and double crochet. It’s perfect for beginners, as you really get to know how to work the basic crochet stitches.

The second stitch in the pattern is a simple double crochet stitch. So it’s just going to be a repeat of the other stitch, but without the single crochet. Easy right!

I just loved how these two different stitch patterns look together and thought it would be perfect for this crochet baby girl blanket design.

A Crochet Baby Shower Gift Idea

One thing I love about baby showers is seeing all the homemade gifts. So when I heard that my sister was throwing a baby shower for her friend, I thought it was the perfect time to design and make a crochet baby blanket.

Since we know the gender of the baby, which is a girl (and her favorite color!), I went ahead and made this in one color. But, you could also choose two different colors and switch between rows.

Or you could also pick one color for the blanket and another color for the border. So it’s totally up to you! I also added some color combinations down below in case you need some color matching ideas.

The Yarn You’ll Use for Your Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

For this crochet baby blanket pattern, I used 4 skeins of Hobby Lobby’s Yarn Bee Bamboo-Tiful in the color Rose. It’s a lightweight category 3 yarn that’s made from cotton and bamboo.

I love using this yarn and highly recommend it for this baby blanket pattern. Here’s a list of some color combinations for this design:

  • Linen – Rose
  • Linen – Basil
  • Rose – Mustard
  • White – Sea Green
  • Iron – Rose
  • Linen – Papaya

If you want to use another yarn for this pattern, I would recommend Lion Brand Coboo yarn. It’s also a lightweight number 3 yarn that’s made from cotton and bamboo. They look and feel the same to me.

If you want to see an example of this yarn, take a look at this Shell Stitch Baby Blanket pattern or this Roundup of free Lion Brand Coboo yarn patterns.

How to Adjust the Size of Your Crochet Baby Blanket?

If you want to make a smaller or larger version of this crochet baby blanket pattern, all you need to do is adjust the starting chain. You also have to take the multiple into account, which is two.

So for a smaller blanket, you want to decrease the number of chains and for a larger blanket, you want to increase the number of chains.

Do not cut yarn.

You’re now finished with the blanket portion of the pattern. Now we will work the border in continues rounds.

How to Crochet a Border Around Your Baby Blanket

You want to start off by chaining 1 at the top left corner of your blanket and continue making single crochets along the edges of the blanket. Once you have reached a corner, make 3 single crochets in each corner.

Continue to repeat this for one more round. If you find that your edges are starting to curl, make an extra single crochet to each stitch.

Once you have finished your last stitch, make a slip stitch and tie a knot. Finally, cut your yarn and weave in your ends.

Last but not least, make sure to block your blanket with a blocking tool to smooth out any curling that occurred during the process of making this crochet baby blanket.

I hope you enjoyed making this cute crochet baby girl blanket! I added a cute little white bow to mine and I might add a little stuffed animal to it as well.

Could you recommend a good blocking tool and any helpful pointers?? This is my first project besides a wash cloth. I’ve searched “how to” block online but would love some guidance. Thank you!

@Nicky, I’ve finished my blanket and have blocked it. Now I’m going to give as a gift. What care instructions do you provide for this sweet blanket or how have you washed/dried ? Thank you for this precious blanket pattern!! Carol

Hi there, so there's a couple of different ways you can block a crochet project. My personal favorite is to lay out my project on blocking mats (I purchased a set from Amazon) and lightly steam it with an iron. You can also do the soaking method, which is putting your project in a bucket of water, rinsing it out carefully, and laying it flat to dry on blocking mats. I hope that helps and good luck! 😊
