If you’re looking for a quick and rewarding way to create a beautiful baby blanket, Tunisian crochet is the perfect choice! This pattern is simple enough for beginners, but will still produce a stunning end result. Let’s get started right now!
Medium weight yarn (approximately 600g)
Tunisian crochet hook suitable for yarn size
Tapestry needle to weave in loose ends
Step 1: Choosing Thread and Needle
Select a soft, cozy medium-weight yarn in a color you love. Be sure to choose a Tunisian crochet hook that fits your yarn size to ensure your work has the right tension.
Step 2: Assembly
Start by making a chain with a number of stitches that is a multiple of two plus two extra stitches.
Then insert your hook into the second chain from the hook, pull through a loop and keep it on the hook. Repeat this process on all chains until the end of the row.
Step 3: Body Work
Now, for each subsequent row, work backwards, removing one stitch from the needle each time, until only one stitch remains.
When you reach the last stitch, work a single Tunisian crochet stitch to finish the row.
Step 4: Increases (Optional)
If you want your blanket to be rectangular in shape, you can make additional increases at the beginning and end of each row, adding additional stitches.
Step 5: Choose Pattern (Optional)
You can keep your blanket simply working every row in the same stitch, or you can add variations to create an interesting pattern. Try different stitches like the honeycomb stitch, single Tunisian crochet stitch, or the knit stitch.
Step 6: Continuation
Continue working on the body of the blanket until you reach the desired length. Remember to alternate colors if desired to add a touch of creativity to your project.
Step 7: Finishing
Once you’ve reached the desired size, make a simple border around the entire blanket for a finishing touch. This can be done with regular or Tunisian crochet stitches, depending on your preference.
Step 8: Finalization
Finally, cut the thread, leaving a generous tail. Pass the end of the tail through the last stitch and pull firmly to finish. Use a tapestry needle to weave all the loose ends into the blanket.
Now you have an amazing Tunisian crochet baby blanket ready to be used or given as a gift! Enjoy the feeling of accomplishment and comfort that your new project brings. Remember, practice makes perfect, so don’t be afraid to experiment and have fun with your future crochet projects!
