Star Baby Blanket (Crochet)

For Science!

Okay… baby blankets aren’t all that geeky, but I made this one for a friend of mine’s little peanut.  Stars, outer space, babies: what’s not to love?

There are quite a few free crochet blanket patterns online, but most of them look like the sort of thing your grandmother would make, not that there’s anything wrong with that.  I wanted something more modern, and found this pattern at the Bernat website. It’s free but you have to log in.

So if you know any adorable little future astronauts, I’d highly recommend this pattern.  It was easy to make and worked up quickly, and you can continue the pattern for as many rounds as you like to make a large or small blanket.

For another crochet blanket in a more modern style, here’s a Streamwave blanket I made for my baby nephew in Da Bears colours. Free pattern here on Ravelry.Streamwave blanket in Bears colours

  1. This is adorable! I love the colours. I’ve seen this pattern done in knitting, but not crochet. Also, speaking of crochet, the time of reckoning has come… I’m going to take the plunge and attempt to learn. Wish me luck!

    1. Good luck! It may be frustrating for the first hour or so but once you get the basic stitch you’re golden. I’m back in Ottawa in a few weeks if you want to stitch ‘n’ bitch…
