Free Pattern: Tunisian Crochet Baby Blanket

This article is available in german.

I designed this baby blanket when I was pregnant with my second daughter. I usually rather do not crochet baby things, and also crochet blankets has been difficult for me in the past, because I was still very impatient and just did not have the nerve to crochet a whole blanket from start to finish. In addition, I still had a toddler to take care of, that also did not always want to watch mom crochet.

A baby blanket was just the thing for me. A meaningful project that is also being used, enough cuddle factor and a manageable size for the quick sense of achievement.

Because you crochet the blanket in the simple Tunisian stitch (Tss) , you get a nice strong fabric that can withstand some crawling and will remain a treasured keepsake.

Choose the right yarn

Make sure you crochet your Tunisian baby blanket with a yarn that is machine washable.

Sensitive materials are really totally impractical for babies. Parents don’t have the time or the nerve to take care of the hand-dyed merino blanket, because babies grab everything and drool uncontrollably. That’s why blankets or blankets made of precious wool, which you can only wash by hand, not infrequently end up well-protected, but unused in the dresser.

But what is more pitiful than a blanket crocheted with love Tunisian that no one uses?

Joining the sections and working the border

Place pieces 1-5 right side up from left to right and sew them together with mattress stitch.

Attach A at one corner of the blanket. With your standard crochet hook, work sc’s evenly around the edges. When you have finished one round, ch 1 and work reverse sc in every stitch of the round before. Finish off and weave in ends.

Wash your blanket carefully by hand, then block it and let it dry completely to avoid the curling.
