Snowberry Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

I’ve designed this baby blanket crochet pattern to create a tight and cozy fabric, guaranteeing the utmost comfort for your little one.

You can make it totally unique by using different colours of yarn. Crochet the blanket in one colour or several colours (perfect if you have yarn in your stash you need to use up!). Choose all the bright and beautiful colours of the rainbow or go for soft and pretty pastels.

Perfect for both boys and girls, this free pattern is a versatile choice for any little one!

My pattern is an ideal project for beginners with knowledge of basic crochet stitches as well as experienced crocheters looking for a quick make. The pattern uses basic crochet stitches, front post stitches and the eye-catching spiked bobble stitch which combined, give an array of textures.

Design Inspiration

I wanted a baby blanket to represent the beginning of life and all the possibilities yet to come. White (to me) represents innocence and a blank page.  Another thing that reminds me of innocence and having no flaws is the saying ‘pure as the driven snow.’  In my design, the spiked bobble stitch is a great representation of snowfall (and of course, no snowflake is the same; unique, just as we are!).

How the crochet baby blanket pattern is worked

  • Multiples of 6 + 2 (1 t-ch)
  • This blanket is worked flat in rows
  • Double Crochet (UK / Single Crochet (US) rows alternate with spiked bobble stitch rows.

  • The spiked bobble stitch is worked two rows below
  • The front post stitches form the border and are part of each row
  • The blanket is finished off with a round of slip stitches using a 4.5mm hook.  This gives structural support

Pattern Notes

  • Chain 1 does not count as a stitch.
  • I work my turning chain at the end of rows to maintain a straight edge.
  • Repeat stitches in a row are shown thus: [stitches] followed by how many repeats.
  • Pattern repeats are shown thus: *  with instructions for when they end  ie; * rep across to last 2 sts.
  • Row 3: Front-post below is worked around the stitch 2 rows below.  All other rows, Front-post below stitches are worked around the front post in the row below.
  • Spike bobble below is worked around the stitch 2 rows below. 
  • Lengthen the loop to a height just above the top edge of the current row for the front-post below and spike bobble below stitches. This avoids bunching
  • Don’t forget to chain 1 after each bobble is made.  This closes the bobble stitch.
  • Loosen your tension for the slip stitch border around the blanket to avoid ruffling.
