Post image for 15 Most Popular Free Crochet Baby Blanket Patterns

I was recently asked by a friend to find some good crochet baby blanket patterns to get her started on a new project. As a result, I spent a lot of time browsing the terrific eye candy of great patterns online. That inspired me to put together a roundup of some of the most popular free crochet blanket patterns for babies. Here they are, along with a few newer patterns that you may not have seen yet.

1. Easy-to-Customize Crochet Blanket

Mary Thompson’s A Blanket for All Seasons, which is available as a free Ravelry download, is one that can be personalized in many different ways. It’s great because you can make many of them for all of the babies in your life and no two have to look the same.

2. Shell Edged Baby Blanket

The stitch pattern on the main portion of this blanket is easy and creates a lovely texture. The shell edging adds decorative flair. This is a free crochet pattern from Modern Grace Design.

3. Swirl Crochet Baby Blanket

Sonea Delvon shares the crochet pattern for this baby blanket as a free download on Ravelry. I love that it’s a non-traditional shape, worked in the round and creating a lovely decorative swirl that feels soothing and safe.

4. Triangle Crochet Baby Blanket

Moogly calls this the Go Team baby blanket because it can be worked in your favorite sports’ teams colors. However, what I love about the design is the triangle pattern combined with the triangular edging. Unique, fun and a great free pattern.

5. Hexapuff Quilt for Baby

This is the Bubbles Baby Blanket by Yarns and Musings. It is worked with two strands held together so it’s nice and thick and cozy.

12. V-Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket

I love the V-stitch. It gives an elegant look to almost any item and yet totally works for a baby blanket. This free crochet pattern is on a foreign language blog but if you use Google Translate and the stitch diagram photos shown in the post you should be able to figure it out. Update: I just learned that if you scroll down the page you’ll see an English version of the pattern. My apologies for missing that in my first review!

13. Project Linus Blanket
