22 Best Different Crochet Blanket Patterns
Polka Dot Blanket Free Pattern
This pattern was one of those “oh I love this speckled yarn. What can I do with its moments? I bought the yarn and had no idea what I was going to do with it. I got home and looked through my stash. of yarn to see what colors would go with it and I realized, I wanted to make a blanket with brightly colored polka dots all over it. So, here is my polka dot blanket!
Bernat Polka Dot Blanket Free Pattern
Add a whimsical touch to any nursery with the Colorful Polka Dots Baby Blanket. Made by Hannah of Daisy Farm Crafts, this cute blanket was inspired by her love of polka dots and their fun three dimensional pop effect.
Done in a Weekend Blanket Free Pattern
A while ago, I was trying to figure out how to use Lion Brand’s Baby Soft Boucle yarn in a quick crochet baby blanket without having to deal with some of the typical frustrations that boucle yarn can present. I came up with the idea of using a granny stitch because it eliminates the need to search for the stitches in a fuzzy thread. (See more of our free crochet patterns that use the granny stitch here!)
The Tributary Blanket pattern (pictured above) was born and my mom sewed it beautifully. I know you loved it too because I am often tagged in awesome variations of the pattern on Instagram.
Like the tributary blanket, the granny stitch in this pattern makes Baby Soft Boucle super easy to work with. Combined with Lion Brand’s Feels Like Butta, this quick crochet baby blanket pattern is so easy to work with. In fact, it can be done on a weekend with very little concentration or fuss.
Waves Blanket Free Pattern
Note 1: If you decide to knit a different number of shapes, you must allow 17 stitches for one wave and add 3 stitches at the end. For example, if you want to have 5 repetitions, multiply 17 by 5, which gives 85 points. To these 85 points, you need to add 3 more, which brings you to a chain of 88.
Note 2: When working in a row with double crochets, the first chain does not count as a stitch. That means you start the row with chain 1 or 2 (whichever looks better and doesn’t pull on the side – I did chain 1, but with a thinner thread you may need chain 2). After that chain, you will work the first double crochet into the first stitch. Knit this way to avoid gaps at the beginning of the rows.
Note 3: There is an explanation for the crochet sample wave stitch in the last pages in case you want to try the size. There is also a note about working on the back loops or just the front loops. These are backed by images.
Bernat Blanket Afghan Free Pattern
The blanket works in about 4 hours and will be a great gift to make when you don’t have a lot of free time.
I used 3 colors that can suit a boy or a girl. You can match 3 colors or change colors in each row. There are so many ways to personalize this blanket and make it your own.
Adeline Baby Blanket Free Pattern
Baby blankets (blankets in general) are one of the most popular items for crocheting, did you know? They are perfect for a baby: they are made with delicate yarn, so they will not irritate the baby’s delicate skin, they are breathable and warm at the same time.
On top of that, they are perfect for everyone just starting out crocheting! The blankets are easily adjustable in size and forgive many mistakes. It doesn’t matter if your home décor is more classic or modern, they will fit almost anywhere. Take a look at the examples below to check the current trends and look for links to free patterns below the images.
Quick Berry Stitch Blanket Free Pattern
I love scrolling through Pinterest to find new stitches that I hadn’t tried before. I usually start with yarn or pattern as my inspiration, but in the case of this Quick Berry Stitch crochet blanket, it happened almost simultaneously. I unexpectedly found this beautiful Bernat Blanket yarn at Michael’s and knew I wanted to use the Berry Stitch I saw on Pinterest. I found that with this varied blanket thread, you have to keep the stitches fairly even because any fancy changes to the stitches seem to go unnoticed throughout that color shift. This yarn needed an exaggerated stitch in contrast to simple plain crochet to show off the beautiful colors.
3 Hour Afghan Free Crochet Pattern
This free crochet blanket pattern can be worked in about 3 hours, including time to knit in the ends. If you plan to make gifts for this holiday season, this blanket could be your best friend.
All you need are 2 balls of Bernat Blanket wool, 3 hours of your time and voila, you have a soft blanket. This is a quick beginner pattern with no embellishments attached. The biggest challenge when designing with chenille or super bulky thread is keeping the stitch as simple as possible so that the thread and its thickness are the center of attention.

Hudson’s Bay Inspired Afghan Blanket Free Pattern
This pattern was inspired by the smaller version of this blanket, the Hudson’s Bay Inspired Baby Blanket (which I also have available for free). It uses two different knitting techniques: Garter Stitch and Stockinette stitch. I wanted to give this blanket a little more texture than its baby blanket counterpart and I was so happy with the result.
Zoe baby blanket Free Pattern
The main challenge of the Zoe blanket is using proper intarsia when switching colours for the different hearts, and keeping the yarn organized on the backside. Intarsia has the advantage of not only limiting yarn usage for the different colours and keeping the backside neat and tidy, it makes the blanket safe for use even for very small babies – ensuring thus that their fingers don’t get stuck in the loops on the backside.
To make the heart rows, it is best to organize the main colour (off white in this model) into smaller skeins of about 20m, which will avoid that the different yarns get tangled up on the backside.
If you follow the instructions exactly, your baby blanket will measure 90x 100 cm. You can of course adapt it by knitting fewer repeats of the heart pattern.

Four Season Cabin Cloak Blanket Free Pattern
Andrea designed this pattern specifically for our 2020 Advent Calendar. Our theme was Cozy Canadian Cabin and included the yarn and extras from our northern Canadian area.
The pattern comes with diagrams to show the direction of the knitting for each of six squares. A second diagram shows the placement of the squares for joining.
Colours for the 4 sides of the log cabin squares were divided into groups of 6. Each represented one of the 4 seasons.
If using your own yarn grouping your minis into 4 distinct groups will enhance the overall appearance of the cloak.

Borders are worked from sts picked up along edges of the Afghan.
