10 Cute Round Baby Blankets- Free Crochet Patterns

This is a collection of free patterns for round crochet baby blankets & ideas. Make an adorable handmade baby blanket for baby shower gift.

Welcoming a newborn baby into the world is the such a joyous occasion! And what would make a better gift than a round blanket especially made for the new bundle of joy.

I have found some adorable and free crochet baby blanket patterns you can choose from. These patterns are suitable for crocheters of any skill level. 

Whether you are making a blanket for baby boys or baby girl, these easy crochet baby blankets would make great gifts.

All you need to do is choose an easy project and change the color to suit the gender. You can also choose neutral colors or colors matching the nursery decor. 

To make the right size of the blanket, measure the approximate diameter of the crocheted blanket. Don’t forget that one round of stitches will add double the measurement to the diameter.

So, if one round of stitches measure 2 cm in diameter, 2 rounds of stitches will measure 4 cm in diameter and 3 rounds will measure 6 cm. This way you can easily make larger sizes of the blanket.

What Basic Materials Do I Need For Making Round Crochet Baby Blankets?

Here is what you will need for making a cute round crochet baby blanket:

1. Yarn – consider the right type of yarn that will be suitable for a baby blanket. Make sure to choose types of yarn that are easily cleaned but soft for the baby’s skin. A great example is Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn.

The best option would be cotton, bamboo or other natural yarn blends.

Stay away from animal fibres as they may cause allergies or acrylic yarns which are not breathable. 

You can also choose from a wide range of crochet yarn weights. Opt for worsted weight yarn for a portable blanket or super bulky yarn if you are pushed for time, just keep in mind the total weight of blanket so it is not too heavy.

2. Stitch Markers – crocheting in round might get a little confusing, use plenty of stitch markers to keep track of your progress or mark the stitches you need to increase in

3. Crochet Hook – choose appropriate size of mm hook according to the recommendation on the yarn label

4. Scissors

5. Blocking Mats and Blocking Pins
