Vintage Style Crochet Baby Blanket

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!

Pattern Inspiration

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!

Pattern Details

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.

Some comparable yarns would be Knit Picks Brava Worsted or Lion Brand Jeans Yarn. Both are extremely soft yarns and very durable.

All three of these yarns are great for blankets and can be machine washed and dried.

Cream colored baby blanket, called the Sarah Blanket, folded up.

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″.

  1. I have tried this pattern a couple times (on the same project) and find that the corners keep curling. Is that typical of this pattern?

    1. Is it the main body that’s curling or after you’ve added the trim? If you haven’t added the trim yet, the trim may help it to lay down. Otherwise I’d try blocking it.

    1. Hi! I don’t currently have a video tutorial with this pattern. What is the issue you’re having with row 2. Hopefully I can help you figure it out. 🙂

  2. hi! This pattern is so lovely, but i have a question- on the first round of trim, once i start crocheting down the side, should i be sc once into each row, or into the top of the first stitch of each row as well? it just strikes me that when I start on the last round, the ‘puff’ stitches will be differently arranged on the sides than the ends! Any advice would be great, thanks

  3. Can you use the foundation crochet single crochet instead of the chain, if so, how many. Chain calls for 99chain. Thank you

  4. Hey Michelle, this is a lovely pattern and I am following exactly as your instructions, starting with 99ch but on row 1 and onwards I am not getting 88 stitches, I am getting 94 and it works perfectly as your pattern says, so just wonder if you have a miscount on your stitches, I can’t figure out how you get 88 when instructions are followed exactly, I would love to have you check that and explain what perhaps I am missing, but like I said, the pattern is looking perfect, not out of shape or anything… so confused, yes. I am sure I will get a lovely blanket regardless.

  5. In row 1 of the trim, I’m a bit confused on the wording. Do you sc+ch1 in every dc or is the ch1 only to cross the “v” stitching? Or does the sc+ch1 mean every other dc gets a stitch. The picture isn’t close enough for me to tell. It all has worked up beautifully so far. Thanks!

    1. You’ll work a single crochet in each double crochet and ch-1 space around the blanket. So 1 sc in each of them.
