Free Crochet Pattern: Wylie Baby Blanket

I have been wanting to make a granny and v-stitch blanket for a while it is!  This is baby blanket that I came up with for a friend who is due to have a baby girl this summer.  It was super easy to make and really fun because of how colorful it is...though that does leave a lot a ends to weave in!  It could be made in any number of colors or even solid.  

My goal here was to make a square blanket that it bigger than my previous baby blankets.  I wanted something that the baby could grow into but could still be used in the stroller now.  My finished size is 38.5" by 38.5".  Let's get to the pattern :)

Materials needed:

• U.S. H- 5.0 MM crochet hook
• Worsted weight yarn- used here:
          -Color A: Willow Wash in Cream- 3 skeins
          -Color B: Willow Wash in Red Apple- 1 skein
          -Color C: 
Willow Wash in Azalea- 1 skein
          -Color D: Willow Wash in Little Flower- 1 skein
          -Color E: Willow Wash in Clear Water- 1 skein
          -Color F: Willow 
Wash in Turquoise- 1 skein
• Tapestry needle for sewing in the ends 

• ch= chain
• sc= single crochet
• reverse sc= reverse single crochet
• dc= double crochet
• sl st= slip stitch

Finished size:
• 38.5" by 38.5"

Ch 93 (VERY loosely)

1: (dc, ch 1, dc) in the 4th ch from the hook.  *[skip 1 ch, (dc, ch 1, dc) in the next].  Repeat from the * across.  Finish with a dc in the last ch.

2: Ch 3, turn, *(3dc) in the ch 1 space of the row below.  Repeat from the * across.  Dc in the top of the ch 3 of the previous row.

3: Ch 3, turn, *(dc, ch 1, dc) in the middle dc of the 3dc-group from the previous row. Repeat from the * across.  Dc in the top of the ch 3 of the previous row.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until you reach desired length, end on a row 3.


1:  Continue with the color used in your last blanket row, ch 1, turn, make 3 sc in each of the ch1-spaces across.  Make 3 sc in the top ch of the beginning ch 3 from the previous row (corner made).  Continue around, sc evenly down the long side of the blanket, make 3 sc in the corner, continue across the bottom, sc evenly across, make 3 sc in the corner, continue up the other long side, sc evenly up this side,  3 sc in the corner and then join with a sl st to the beginning sc.  Bind off.

2:  Join Red Apple with a standing sc anywhere, sc around the entire blanket, making 3 sc in each corner.  Join with a sl st to the beginning standing sc. Bind off.

3:  Join Azalea with a standing sc anywhere, sc around the entire blanket, making 3 sc in each corner.  Join with a sl st to the beginning standing sc. Bind off.

5:  Join Cream with a standing sc anywhere, sc around the entire blanket, making 3 sc in each corner.  Join with a sl st to the beginning standing sc, continue on to round 6 with Cream.

6: Continue working with Cream, ch 1, then reverse sc around the entire blanket (one reverse sc in every stitch, including the corners).  Bind off.  Weave in all ends.

  1. Love it! Thank you for the pattern. The group that I belong to knits/crochets warm items for various charity organaizations. This will be great for that. Just wondering what the stitch multiple is so I can make it a bit bigger (they prefer closer to 45x45). Thank you :-)

    1. Hi! When I did my chain, I did an even number plus 3. I haven't tried other sizes but that should work for you. Let me know if you have a problem. Thanks!

  2. Hello, I was wondering what row you change colors? Is it at the end of row 2? How does that part work?

    1. Hi,

      You make your chain and then row 1 in Cream. After that you switch colors every row. The pattern I used is like this: Cream, Red Apple, Cream, Azalea, Cream, Little Flower, Cream, Clear Water, Turquoise...then I repeat that pattern through the rest of the blanket. Let me know if you have any questions.


  3. I'm finished with the body of the blanket, and you're's ALOT of ends to weave in!! Did you weave the color change ends into blanket before working the border?? I'm afraid of it being bulky

    1. Yes, I weaved in all the ends before working the border. It was a lot but the blanket was totally worth it :) Good luck!

  4. beautiful pattern will try and send u a picture

Free Crochet Pattern: Emerson Car Seat Cover or Baby Blanket

I love the concept of car seat covers/canopies.  When you use a regular blanket instead, it is always falling off and you are constantly picking it up off the ground.  A car seat cover covers and protects your baby for cold weather, rain, snow, bright sun, you name it and it hooks on the handle bar so it ALWAYS stays in place!  I absolutely love it and if you have a baby in an infant seat, you NEED to make one of these to see how great it is. PLEASE REMEMBER, it is dangerous to have your baby covered up in their car seat for long periods of time.  This cover is NOT meant for that.  This cover is only meant to be used when you are walking from your house to your car, store to car, school to car, and the is meant to protect your baby from rain, snow, strong wind as you are walking from the places mentioned above.  It is not meant to be left on the car seat when you are driving, sitting somewhere, going to a long walk or stroller ride, or anywhere else for longer than a minut

Tutorial: How to Add a Zipper to a Crochet Pouch

I have been crocheting tons of pouches lately and I love lining them with a coordinating fabric and finishing them with a zipper.  I'm not an expert at sewing by any means, but this method works for me.  I use it every time and I am always happy with the results.  I hope you enjoy this tutorial! In the pictures shown in this tutorial, I am lining the Lee Change Purse .  But, this method will work for any pouch...just adjust the fabric and zipper sizes. Materials needed- for the fabric lining & zipper (if desired): • 5" zipper • Fabric- 2 pieces that are roughly 5" high by 6"wide •Needle & thread •Sewing machine (optional) •a few ball head straight pins Finished size: • Lee Change Purse- 4" high by 5" wide Making the Lining: 1. Cut out 2 pieces of fabric that are about 1/2-inch larger around than your pouch. 2. Lay one piece of the fabric, right side up, on your worktop.  Place the zipper, right side up, on top of t

Free Crochet Pattern: Valentine's Day Headbands

I made these adorable Valentine's headbands for my daughters.  For three free crochet headband patterns and how I made them, see below! I saw the cutest heart headband floating around Pinterest and decided to make one for each of my daughters.  The tutorial for the heart headband is here and the original heart pattern is here . But instead of using an elastic headband, I decided to use a crochet one.  I made some of these last year for my girls to wear at Easter and they turned out well so I was excited to make more. Here are my hearts: For the red one, I used Vanna's Choice yarn in Scarlet with a K hook.  For the darker pink, I used Red Heart Soft Baby Steps in Strawberry with an I hook.  For the lighter pink, I used Vanna's Choice yarn in Pink with a G hook. All of the headbands begin the same way.  If you are using 2 hair ties you have to join them together before you start joining the yarn onto the hair tie. If you are using one hair tie, you can beg
