To be honest, I’ve never been that interested in crocheting blankets. I have a hard time working on large projects because my attention span is not that long and I get bored of working on the same thing for an extended period of time. But when I heard my cousin was expecting a baby girl, I thought a handmade baby blanket would be such a sweet gift for her. While searching through Pinterest for a quick and easy blanket idea, I couldn’t find anything I loved. I wanted something simple, but not too boring or basic, and something that could work up really quick. Lastly, I wanted to be able to use only the yarn in my stash, as I’ve been trying to work through it all for the last year.
I wanted to use a chevron design because it adds interest to the blanket without being too difficult to create. It also uses double crochet stitches so it works up fast! And when I say it works up fast, I mean it took me LESS THAN 4 HOURS TO MAKE! Now, the speed at which you can finish greatly depends on how fast or slow you are at crocheting, but I consider myself to crochet on the slower side and I took many breaks while working on this blanket and it still took me just under 4 hours from start to finish. So whether you’re looking to make a last minute baby shower gift or just love the design of this simple, yet beautiful baby blanket, I hope you enjoy this pattern!
I had this Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn in my stash, that I had only used a little bit of for a previous project. I thought these pink tones would be perfect for a baby girl blanket! With only having less than one skein of each, my design options were limited so I added in the ivory to make up for the lack of yardage but it also added a nice contrast and brightness to all the pink. I have previously designed a chevron blanket (American Flag Blanket) and loved how easy it was to make, but it wasn’t boring to look at, even though it’s only double crochet stitches.
I really love Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek yarn, especially for baby blankets. It’s super soft, durable, and comes in so many beautiful colors! Although I used 4 colors, you can use as many or few colors as you’d like! Feel free to make your Bebe Baby Blanket one solid color, striped, or ombre like mine! The possibilities are endless and can be made to fit any home decor or nursery style!
The color combination possibilities are endless, but if you need some inspiration or ideas, I’ve made this Pinterest board to help you out! Below are also some other Bebe Baby Blankets I have made for baby shower gifts. The blanket on the left used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek in the colors Light Grey, Tobacco, Ivory, and Dark Heather Grey. The blanket on the right used Lion Brand Yarn Basic Stitch in the colors Taupe Heather, Frost, White, and Mustard.
The finished size of the Bebe Baby Blanket is about 30″ x 30″, but you can easily adjust it to be bigger or smaller! Although it’s called baby blanket, you can make it to be for anyone and any size! To adjust the width of the blanket you will need to chain a multiple of 31 + 4. To adjust the length of the blanket you will just repeat Row 2 until you reach your desired size.

- The number in parenthesis at the end of each row represents the total number of stitches to be worked in that row.

On the final pull through of the last stitch of the current color, drop current color and pull through with the new color. Tie the tail ends together, weave in now or at the end, and continue with the pattern.
