Spring Vibes Baby Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern
When I designed this baby blanket, the snow just started melting and the fresh grass shoots were showing up in places. I wanted the Spring Vibes Baby Blanket to reflect just that. The white and grey blanket reminds me of the melted snow and the green, busy edging resembles the fresh grass.
For this blanket, I use 2 strands of double knit yarn held together, one strand of white and one of grey, and the granny stripe stitch for the pattern. For the border, I use just one strand of double knit yarn in green and the layered scallops border.
Below you can find the written pattern and just to make it easier for you, I also created a full video tutorial that guides you step by step on how to crochet your own version of Spring Vibes Baby Blanket.

Spring Vibes Baby Blanket – Written Pattern

NOTE: the space between the dc and the 3dc cluster found at the beginning and end of the row does not count as a space.
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until your blanket measures 100cm long. Mine had 66 rows, but yours might differ because of your tension, hook and yarn used.
Don’t fasten off, we will continue to crochet the base border around the blanket next.
