Lotte Lace Baby Blanket – Free Pattern Description:

Materials Needed:

  • Yarn: Choose a soft and baby-friendly yarn in your preferred color.
  • Crochet Hook: Use an appropriate-sized crochet hook for your chosen yarn weight.
  • Yarn Needle: For weaving in ends and finishing touches.
  • Scissors: For cutting yarn.

Pattern Instructions:

  1. Foundation Chain: Begin by making a foundation chain with a multiple of stitches suitable for the desired width of your baby blanket. Typically, a baby blanket might measure around 30 inches in width.
  2. Row 1: Start by working a row of double crochets (US terms) or treble crochets (UK terms) into the third chain from the hook. Continue with double crochets (or treble crochets) across the row.
  3. Row 2: Begin the lace pattern. This might involve combinations of yarn overs and double crochets to create an open and lacy pattern. For example, you could work a row of [double crochet, chain 2, skip 2 stitches] repeats across.
  4. Repeat Rows: Continue to repeat Row 2, creating the lace pattern, until your blanket reaches the desired length. Make sure to maintain the same stitch count to keep your pattern consistent.
  5. Edging: Finish your blanket with a decorative edging. This could be a simple single crochet (US terms) or double crochet (UK terms) border to provide a neat and finished look.
  6. Finishing: Weave in all loose ends, block your blanket if needed, and add any additional embellishments or personal touches as desired.
