Editor’s Inspiration: Beatrice Baby Blanket crochet pattern by Little Doolally

This week, Angie is thinking about baby showers and the ultimate baby blanket crochet pattern for any family – easy and gorgeous.

It’s almost spring, and that means baby showers. Call it nature’s cycle or call it fate, or maybe even a coincidence, but I would swear that there are more baby showers in spring than in any other season. With that in mind, I’m planning out the gifts and the projects to help new parents welcome a new member of their family.

For crocheters, baby blankets seem like an inevitability. They are always a welcome and appreciated gift from parents, and many times cherished for years and passed down to other children, or saved for their children many years later.

This pattern uses simple techniques that even beginners know: slip stitch, chain, trebel (double in US terms), and how to change the color of yarn. The pattern includes instructions that use both the UK and US crochet terms, as well as plenty of photos to help you along.

If you’re looking to make an heirloom blanket that will be passed down from generation to generation, then Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton is an excellent choice. It’s spun with 100% organic cotton in a variety of shades that will suit any nursery or play room. I personally love crocheting with this yarn; the twist makes for quick crochet with a crisp stitch definition.

If you have a dozen baby showers to plan for this season and need something more economical, it doesn’t get better than Schachenmayr Cotton Time yarn. It’s machine washable in a range of baby shades, and you’ll be able to stock up on enough to make an entire maternity ward of baby blankets.
