The Sarah Blanket is a beautiful, vintage style crochet baby blanket that uses a simple stitch combination to create a stunning result!
This gorgeous crochet blanket makes a wonderful gift for a new mom and baby, but can also be made in any other size!
I was inspired to create this crochet baby blanket from the stitch combo! I had used it for my Sarah Scarf crochet pattern and loved it so much!
I went with the cream color because I knew that color combined with the stitch combination would give it such a beautiful vintage crochet look!
The shell trim is just the icing on the cake, adding such a beautiful and feminine look to the blanket!
This blanket is so beautiful and can be made in any size or color!
This crochet baby blanket pattern uses worsted weight (#4) yarn. I used Paintbox Simply Aran yarn from LoveCrafts. It is a sturdy 100% acrylic yarn that comes in many colors.
All three of these yarns are great for blankets and can be machine washed and dried.
The pattern is rated Easy in pattern difficulty. It uses the basic crochet stitches, such as single crochet and double crochet, combined to give it the lacy, vintage look.
Within the pattern you’ll find a chart of optional stitch counts to use to make your blanket larger. The baby blanket measurements are 32″ x 30″.
