Introduction

About this Pattern


If you’re looking for a relaxing project with lots of color, texture and uniqueness, you’re in the right place. Our Baby Waves Crochet Baby Blanket is the perfect blend of mindless crochet with a little bit of fun at the end.

With this project you’ll get lots of practice with a variant of the crochet “V” stitch pattern and you can try your hand at creating a beautiful color palette to make the stitch really pop. Then, at the end of the project we’ll show you how to crochet a really neat wave border, a skill you can bring to future projects.

Before you begin, review this page entirely so you understand the full scope of the project. We prepared a list of recommended supplies and abbreviations you’ll need to get started, a video tutorial and, of course, written instructions to walk you through our Baby Waves Crochet Baby Blanket step-by-step.

You will find the full pattern for free here on this page.

However, B.Hooked Insiders have access to B.Hooked patterns ad-free with the option to download/print, including weekly office hours for pattern support.

FAQ: Can I use a different yarn?
Sure, as long as it is in the same weight category. Check your gauge to make sure this substitution won’t effect the sizing and keep in mind the recommended amount will likely be inaccurate.
