If you’re a fan of chunky, squishy yarn, and the corner to corner stitch, you’re going to absolutely adore this baby blanket! For this blanket, I’ll teach you a simple technique to crochet this blanket in 3 corner to corner strips that are joined together as you go. The effect is a pretty herringbone striped blanket that looks phenomenal and feels just as great.
Seriously, guys, this blanket is so soft, it’s puppy approved! (Well, my old man isn’t a puppy anymore, but he was VERY sure he wanted to be in the photo. I spent 5 minutes trying to convince him to move but he wouldn’t budge!) And don’t you love the diagonal stripe pattern?
This month’s Design Create Repeat Collab features 4 patterns geared for kids, and I know you’ll love them! Click over to Janne’s Cute Baby Bonnet at Joy of Motion Crochet next, or if you’re really looking for more check out:
I have to say, the yarn used in this blanket (Bernat Baby Blanket Stripes) absolutely makes the pattern shine! If you prefer to make your own even stripes for a more uniform effect, that would look great, too, but this colorful and uber soft yarn worked out just great for my blanket, no cutting or trimming required!

Want to adjust the gauge or size? You can customize your blanket to any weight and size, but keep in mind that having an even number of blocks and an odd number of rows gives the blanket a more orderly flow. Have fun experimenting!
