Ruffle Edged Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Here’s what you need:

Resources and tutorials you may find helpful in following this pattern: Crochet AbbreviationsU.S. to U.K. Crochet Conversion ChartHow to Make a Magic Ring, Crochet Stitch Chart Symbols.

 

Add this pattern to your Ravelry library.

 

Finished blanket measures approximately 28 in. × 28 in.

 

With your worsted weight yarn, make a magic ring (as an alternative to the magic ring method, you can ch 4 and join in furthest ch from hook to form a ring.)

Round 1: Ch 3 (counts as first dc), 2 dc in ring, ch 3, *3 dc in ring, ch 3, repeat from *twice more, join with a Sl st in top of beg ch — 12 sts.

Round 2: Sl st in each of the next 2 sts to corner ch-3 sp, work [1 sc, ch 2] in ch-3 sp (counts as first dc), work [2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in same ch-3 sp, ch 1 *[3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch-3 sp, ch 1, rep from * twice more,  join with a Sl st in top of beg ch — 24 sts.

Round 3: Sl st in each of the next 2 sts to corner ch-3 sp, work [1 sc, ch 2] in ch-3 sp (counts as first dc), work [2 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in same ch-3 sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch-3 sp, rep from * twice more, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, join with a Sl st in top of beg ch — 36 sts.

Round 4: Sl st in each of the next 2 sts to corner ch-3 sp, work [1 sc, ch 2] in ch-3 sp (counts as first dc), work [2 dc , ch 3, 3 dc] in same ch-3 sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch-3 sp, rep from * twice more,  ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, join with a Sl st in top of beg ch — 48 sts.

Round 5: Sl st in each of the next 2 sts to corner ch-3 sp, work [1 sc, ch 2] in ch-3 sp (counts as first dc), work [2 dc , ch 3, 3 dc] in same ch-3 sp, *ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, [3 dc, ch 3, 3 dc] in next ch-3 sp, rep from * twice more,  ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, join with a Sl st in top of beg ch — 60 sts.

Rounds 6 through 19: Continue pattern and color sequence as done in previous rounds, adding an additional repeat of “3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1″ along each side for each round ending with 228 sts, or until desired size (note that you will need additional yarn and fabric if making a larger blanket).

Do not fasten off. Continue with Edging below.

Edging

Since the fabric ruffle might tickle under a baby’s chin, I only worked it around three sides of the blanket, and I worked a crochet edge with the worsted weight yarn along remaining side (see pattern below).

Setup: Continuing with your worsted weight yarn from Round 19 of the blanket pattern above, Sl st in next 2 sts and in each of the 3 ch of corner.

Row 1: Working in back loops only this row, ch 2 (counts as hdc), work 1 hdc in each st and ch across, ending with last st in first ch of corner ch-3 sp, turn (remember we are only crocheting right now across one edge of the blanket) — 77 sts.

Row 2: Ch 2 (counts as hdc), work 1 hdc in each st across, turn — 77 sts.

Row 3: Working in back loops only again for this row, ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 sc in each st across — 77 sts.

Fasten off and weave in ends.

 

The remaining three sides will be edged with our fabric yarn. Work 1 sc in the back loop only of each st and ch around the remaining three sides.

To single crochet with the fabric, start with first loop of fabric on your hook, *insert hook in back loop of st, pick up next loop from fabric and pull through, pick up next loop of fabric and pull through both loops, repeat from * for remaining sts.

Fasten off and snip excess fabric.

    Hi! This pattern is adorable and I’d love to share it on Facebook. However, your Facebook button at the bottom of the page shows an error message. Could you look into it, please? Thank you. <3

      Hi Anne 🙂 I am so happy to hear you like it and want to share it with your friends! It seems to be working now … Not sure what was wrong

  3. Shar Perreira January 26, 2015 at 1:56 pm #

    Love it thank you! What size hook are you using?

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 8:59 pm #

    So nice, but I wonder what ever happened to pastel colors for babies.

    • Judy January 29, 2015 at 11:30 pm #

      Pastel colors were for the moms. Babies actually respond better to bright colors.

      • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:07 pm #

        I did not know that. Very interesting!

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:01 pm #

      I still use lots of pastels for baby gifts, but thought this suited my friend better 🙂

  5. Lori Bennett Kramer January 26, 2015 at 4:30 pm #

    How creative! I’m crocheting a granny square blanket for my granddaughter right now and this would make the perfect edging for it! 🙂

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:01 pm #

      So glad you like it, Lori 🙂

    Do you have a video for rounds 1-3 Or so? I am a beginner at crochet and am more of a visual learner. I have completed round one but am confused on where exactly to finish it and how to start2and complete round 2.

    Thanks in advance

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:02 pm #

      I’m sorry, I don’t 🙁

    • donna February 6, 2015 at 5:54 am #

  7. maria de los Ángeles January 30, 2015 at 12:59 am #

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:07 pm #

      No, I’m sorry 🙁

    Thanks for sharing. This is beautiful. Can’t wait to try this pattern!

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:08 pm #

      My pleasure! Hope you enjoy it too 🙂

  9. Alma January 30, 2015 at 1:01 pm #

    Hi: Do you offer visual tutorials (video) on your projects like YouTube? It would be a lot easier for me, since I am learning, if I could follow along a video. Thank you.

    • Kara February 1, 2015 at 9:10 pm #

      I don’t have many yet

  10. Nancy Edenfied February 3, 2015 at 2:40 am #

    What is the name of the pink? I think it is very pretty

    • Kara February 3, 2015 at 12:47 pm #

      Hi Nancy 🙂 Unfortunately I have no idea of the exact color. I had these skeins in my stash with no labels.

  11. Lori February 6, 2015 at 1:09 am #

    Does the finished measurement include the ruffled edging? Also, is there a gauge to go by?

    • Kara February 6, 2015 at 10:00 am #

      Hi Lori 🙂 Yes, the measurement includes the ruffle. I did not work up a gauge swatch since it shouldn’t really effect the sizing too much.

      • Lori February 6, 2015 at 4:26 pm #

        Hi Kara! Thanks so much for the info! I was also wondering when attaching the sassy fabric, will the blanket be facing on the right or wrong side?

        • Kara February 9, 2015 at 9:54 am #

          You will be facing the right side

  12. Robin February 22, 2015 at 9:53 pm #

    Hi Kara, how many pkg. of sassy fabric did you use?

  13. Tameka April 23, 2015 at 11:26 am #

    Hi! What yarn did you use for this? It came out beautifully!

    • Kara April 27, 2015 at 10:51 am #

      I believe it was Vannah’s Choice Baby for the center.

      • Tameka May 6, 2015 at 2:51 pm #

        Thanks for the info! You inspired me to make a blanket for the newest member of my family. I’m using the neverending granny square. It’s pretty much the same as yours.

  14. deb May 17, 2015 at 10:32 am #

    How much of the ruffle does it take?

    • Kara May 18, 2015 at 9:30 am #

      Just one skein 🙂

  15. Charlotte Lorincz September 8, 2015 at 11:47 am #

    I love the blanket but got a little lost on how to crochet the fabric to the edges?

  16. Tracie Holladay October 8, 2015 at 7:33 pm #

    So when you do the granny square, you don’t turn the work with each round? Some folks have advised doing so, as whenever I have done this, my granny swirls a bit

    • Kara October 9, 2015 at 9:30 am #

      Hi Tracie 🙂 No, you don’t need to turn your work. Keep working with the right side facing throughout.

  17. Janet June 2, 2016 at 9:56 am #

    Thank you so much for sharing this item I am just starting to learn how to do crocheting I keep not trying to hold the hook like a knitting needle but with perseverance I will get it in the end fingers crossed oh no well you know what I mean.

    For the edges you actually use a product called sassy fabric. I never heard of it. Where can I find it

    • Kara August 8, 2016 at 11:55 am #

      Yep, it is called Sassy Fabric and it is made by Red Heart Yarns. You should be able to find it online or in craft stores. There should be an affiliate link at the bottom of my post if you are interested in purchasing it.

  19. Terina January 15, 2017 at 12:44 am #

    I cant figure this one out. Why are you working in the round if it looks like two triangles that were worked in rows? I really do much better seeing this done like watching a video.

    • Kara January 15, 2017 at 3:57 pm #

      Hi Terina 🙂 This blanket is not two triangles worked in rows but a large granny square worked in rounds. Hope that helps 🙂
