Cotton Candy Stripes Crochet Baby Blanket

Cotton Candy Stripes Baby Blanket

Hello My Crocheting Friends,
Isn’t this the sweetest baby blanket? Not only cute but cuddly too.

The stitch is a modified popcorn stitch, giving it a nice texture. I love the colors of this baby blanket and how they stand out against the white.

It feels oh so baby soft. I used Simply Soft Yarn in Sage, Orchid, Blue Mint, and White and it is generously sized at 36” x 36”.

This reversible blanket would be the perfect addition to any nursery or as a gift to an expecting couple. Great blanket for the floor, crib, stroller, car seat or just to snuggle on a chilly day. Even can be used for a photo prop for Baby’s first photo session.

If you want to make your own, you can get the pattern in Leisure Arts Little Books entitled Baby Fresh Blankets. They are offering a 15% off coupon if you purchase directly from Leisure Arts.

The book is also available on Amazon.

There are three other patterns in the Book that are equally darling.  I think I may make the Lavender Lace Baby Afghan next.

If I don’t put it up for sale, I can give it to one of my future grand kids. Its never too early, right??

What crochet projects are you working on this week??

  1. Row 1 has the beginning chain then the foundation row. Drop first color, changing color, but no turn. Did u turn at the end of every row?

  2. In the pattern it does not have you turn until row 2. In row row you make your chain, go back across then u change color drip the first color, but it doesn’t have u turn your work. Did u turn yours?

    1. HI Bev, yes you need to turn at every row. I think we just missed it the first time. The pattern reads: “…changing color to turquoise in the last st made, turn. Drop white.” Hope that helps. I can’t wait to see your blanket! Tag me in a pic on my Facebook page when you have time. xoxo -Karla

  3. At the end of the rows where you don’t turn, what did you do?

    1. I’m not sure I understand your question. You should be turning your work on all rows. Please clarify so I can help
