Easy crochet baby blanket - Free pattern with video instructions

Our today's idea is about creating a beautiful easy and free crochet baby blanket with yarn leftovers, this will give you  a cute colorful design especially with the little popcorn stitch that we will be using,

You can make this blanket in any worsted yarn of your choice that's why i recommand you to combine some beautiful colors from all the leftovers yarn that you have into this project.
The original idea was designed by Biraycahobiler, a Turkish insta crocheter and it turned out to a joyful blanket that could be a great gift for new parents.




As you can see in pictures, i simply repeated rows of white and other rainbow colors alternatively, but you can experiment  this with using just 2 colors for example ( some boy or girls colors ) or even one in one color ( imagine with me the classy and chic resuly that we will get with a simple white or creamy color).



The stitch that we will be using is a sort of mini popcorn, that will be worked in a complete different  way from the original popcorn stitch that we all know ( i made a tiny video for this pattern to help visual learners)

Material :


- worsted yarn ( weight 4) (tip : i advise using any type of acrylic yarn for a blanket,because it makes it easily washable; animal fiber like wool is much harder to wash and if not done properly can shrink and damage your project)
- 2.5 crochet hook
- Yarn needle
- Scissors

Abreviations : 

ch = chain
sc = single crochet
pop = Mini popcorn
YO = yarn over


Mini Popcorn = YO twice, insert the hook in the st,pull up through 1, yo, pull up through 2, yo , pull up through 2, yo and pull up through the last 2 .
For Visual learners : i made this very first youtube video to explain the stitch ( i hope that you will support me in this new blogging and youtube channel adventure with your comments and subsciprions, thank you ! )




I have compiled the popular blankets sizes to guide you in the right direction, so you can make it completely custom..
