A new baby in the family means so much love, hope, and of course, in our case a lot more crocheting to do. 😉 This NEW Sonny’s Baby Blanket crochet pattern is the prefect way to welcome a new little one. This baby blanket pattern is easy and quick to work up, and is versatile too!
Sonny’s Baby Blanket
This easy baby blanket pattern uses the Blanket Stitch. This is a simple three stitch repeat that is easy to master and gives great straight edges. This is super helpful when you go to add the border, because it allows you to evenly and confidently place those stitches worked up the row ends. I love a good, fail-proof crochet project!

I hope the new little one in your life loves their new baby blanket. ♥ This could be beautifully made with any of the new Brava Speckled yarns, especially when paired with the BIG skeins of Brava Worsted in solid colors! I used almost exactly one big Brava Worsted skein for the main body of the blanket, and a bit more of a smaller skein (in the same colorway) to finish off the border.
