Pattern Notes

I recommend using a lightweight (#3) yarn for this pattern, but you can substitute with a worsted weight if that’s what you have on hand. If you decide to substitute with a heavier yarn, the finished size of the blanket will be larger than the dimensions listed above.

This pattern utilizes the crochet basket weave stitch. If you are having problem following the written pattern, I recommend taking a look at my Basketweave Stitch Video Tutorial. The blanket is crocheted width-wise, so the basketweave pattern runs up and down rather than side-to-side.

Ch 2 turning chains in each row count as a half double crochet stitch.

    • Hi Clystia! That’s a pretty fair assessment but there is a little bit of flexibility here. The main goal is to limit the gaps (which would result from too few stitches) and reduce ruffling (which results with too many stitches).

    is it possible to buy a pdf download of this basket weave pattern baby blanket. I just prefer to work from a paper pattern that way I can take it with me to the beach or play ground etc

    • Hi Robyn! Unfortunately I don’t have a PDF version available but you’re certainly not the first person to ask. I really need to make this available and will do everything I can to make that happen soon!
