Baby Doll Blankets {Crochet Patterns}

baby-doll-blankies-crochet-pattern

Last week I emailed my cousin to find out gift ideas for her daughter who was turning two.  I asked the usual – what size is she, what is she into, any good ideas for presents?  I loved the response I got back! She wanted a 
blanket for her babies!  She knows that I crochet (occasionally) and thought that maybe I could whip something up.  She was right!  I haven’t picked up a crochet hook in months and I was eager to make some cute little baby doll blankies for my ADORABLE little cousin.

I checked my yarn inventory (if you crochet or knit, you know what I’m talking about!) and found a variegated yarn that I knew would be perfect and also some green and pink yarn that was super soft.

I’m happy to report that she loves her new baby blankies!  Her mommy sent me these cute pics:


Variegated Baby Doll Blanket

I love how this blanket turned out!  I really wanted to do clusters because I think it adds so much interest to the little blankie.  Final blanket measured 11″ x 13″.
Ch 46
Row 1: Sc in second ch from hook and in each sc across. 45 sc
Row 2: Ch 3, skip first 2 sc, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, skip next 2 sc.  Repeat from * to last 3 sc. (dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, skip next sc, dc in final sc.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in each dc and in each ch-1 space across. 45 sc
Row 4:  Ch 1, sc in first 2 sc, *4-dc cl in next sc, sc in next 2 dc.  Repeat from * to last three sc.    4-dc cl in next sc, 2 sc.
Row 5: Ch 1, sc in each st across. 45 sc
Row 6: Ch 3, skip first st, dc in each sc across. 45 dc
Row 7:  Ch 3, skip first 2 dc, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, skip next 2 dc.  Repeat from * to last 3 dc. (dc, ch 1, dc) in next dc, skip next dc, dc in final dc.
Row 8: Repeat Row 3
Row 9: Repeat Row 6
Row 10: Repeat Row 4
Repeat Rows 5-10 four times.
Row 35:  Ch 1, sc in each st across. 45 sc
Row 36:  Ch 3, skip first 2 sc, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, skip next 2 sc.  Repeat from * to last 3 sc. (dc, ch 1, dc) in next sc, skip next sc, dc in final sc.
Row 37: Ch 1, sc in each st across. 45 sc

Edging:
Round 1: Ch 1. Work (sc, ch 2) evenly spaced around the edge of the blanket working (sc, ch 2) twice in the corners.  Join with slip st in first sc.
Round 2: Ch 1. (Sc, ch 3) evenly spaced around edge working (sc, ch 3) twice in the corners. Join with slip st in first sc.

NOTES: 4-dc cl: Yarn over, insert hook into stitch, draw up loop.  {Yarn over and draw through 2 loops on hook} 4 times.  Yarn over and draw through all 5 remaining loops on hook.

Pink & Green Baby Blanket

I worked this one just like I did Bryce’s blanket. I used Simply Soft yarn.  It’s all single crochets so it’s a great beginners project.  Final blanket measured 8.5″ x 11″.
Ch. 43
Row 1:  2 sc in 2nd ch from hook. 1 sc in each of next 4 ch.  Skip next 2 ch.  1 sc in each of next 4 ch. *3 sc in next ch, 1 sc in each of next 4 ch,.  Skip next 2 ch. 1 sc in each of next 4 ch.  Repeat from * to last ch.  2 sc in last ch. Turn.

Row 2: Ch 1. 2 sc in first sc. 1 sc in each of next 4 sc.  Skip next 2 sc.  1 sc in each of next 4 sc. *3 sc in next sc, 1 sc in each of next 4 sc,.  Skip next 2 sc. 1 sc in each of next 4 sc.  Repeat from * to last sc.  2 sc in last ch. Turn.
Continue working Row 2 until you reach your desired size.  I did {3 rows pink/green, 2 rows pink, 2 rows green} 4 times, 3 rows pink/green for a total of 31 rows.



Edging:
Work sc evenly spaced around the edge of the blanket.  You can add a more decorative edging at this point if you desire.

 

 

I think these turned out really cute and of course I’m thrilled that they are being enjoyed!

  1. I love how your blankets came out! Such great colors and I love the texture on the clustered one :)

  2. What a great idea! My daughter would such cute blankets for her dolls (she just uses old receiving blanket now).

  3. Thanks so much for sharing the pattern for these adorable baby blankets. I like to crochet, but I’m to impatient for big projects. {Or maybe I just don’t like to sit still long enough to finish them} This is perfect for me. Pinned! Thanks for sharing at Terrific Tuesdays.

  4. What an adorable little girl. A nice photo of her playing with her dolls and newly made blankets.

    When you say that you worked this blanket the same way you did Bryce’s, does that mean you worked it with two strands at a time?

    • I worked the three rows with pink and green (total of two strands), and then pink and green separately for another two rows each. This the same pattern I used for Bryce’s blankie – just smaller :)

  6. These blankets are so cute! Look how much she is enjoying them! I was recently to my old neighborhood and visited with my former next door neighbor (29 years ago!) I had crocheted her new baby daughter a blanket and while at her home my friend took me up to her daughter’s bedroom and the blanket was laying on her bed! It was in beautiful shape. I know my neighbor washes linens often. She said she just loved that blanket! That made me feel so good! You will probably have a story like that someday!

  7. I gasped when I saw these. This is just what I need to do for one of my granddaughters. I never even thought about baby doll size, thanks.

  9. love your blankets will do them for my sister in law at xmas

  10. Hello,
    I have made your pink and green chevron stripe doll blanket and I love it. I was wondering how many did you chain to make it big enough for a child instead of a doll? Thank you!

  11. Lindsey Ann says:

    I would also like to know how to make the doll blankets a bigger size for a child? Would I just double the amount chained? Thank you so much.

  12. Is there any way I could just buy one of these blanets off of you?! lol and if so, how much?

  13. I love the doll blankets & want to try making for a niece. What size crochet hook did you use? Thanks!

  14. What brand of yarn are you using for these two blankets? I am new at crocheting :) also did you use an F hook for both blankets? Thanks
