Make This: Simply Striped Baby Blanket

Make This: Crocheted Gender-Neutral Baby Blanket

This project is brought to you by the following joyous news: I'm going to be an aunt! I'm over-the-moon excited, and can't wait to meet my first little niece or nephew. That's right, I said niece OR nephew, and that's because the gender isn't known yet! I'm too excited to wait around to find out whether it's going to be a boy or a girl, and I wanted to get started crocheting a blanket ASAP. I made this gender-neutral baby blanket from a sweet sunflower yellow and cute mint green with alternating white.      

 

If you're new to crocheting, this project is very doable and hassle free. This gender-neutral baby blanket was made from only double-crochet stitches, and since the weight of the yarn isn't too light, it was a fast project as far as afghans are concerned. Keep reading for the pattern!

Notes

  • This project is beginner's level.
  • The dimensions for this project are 46 inches x 60 inches.
  • This pattern is written in standard U.S. terms.
  • For changing colors, I cut the first color a few inches from the stitch, then tied it in a knot to the second color. I then continued crocheting, and weaved the ends in later.
