Juliet’s Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

This baby blanket is a gift for my friend Hilary, who recently gave birth to her daughter Juliet.  Isn’t that name just beautiful? It reminds me of how delicate and beautiful this particular crochet stitch is, and it couldn’t be more fitting.

This baby blanket can double as a nursing coverup, you’ll just need to crochet the strap as outlined in the pattern below. The strap itself could also double as a pacifier clip if/when not nursing!

  1. Hello, Your coverage is superb. I want to do it for my daughter who will have her first baby. When you say that we can double it to make a nursing cover, do you mean that we have to double the number of stitches as well as the number of rows? Thank you
    1. Hi Chantal! I simply mean that if you also crochet the strap as outlined in the pattern, then the blanket can also be used as a nursing cover-up. I hope this helps! And, congratulations on your upcoming grandbaby!
  2. Thank you for sharing this pattern. After having two sons, our daughter was born after several heart-wrenching pregnancy losses. She grew up, married a wonderful young man, and went through disappointing years herself before having her first baby. And I have been looking for just the right blanket for her -- the bonus with this one was its use as a nursing cover. I may make it in a purple like this one, because MY precious daughter, Juliet, likes purple, too!
