5 Super Easy Free Patterns for  Beautiful Baby Blankets

Do you always see these beautiful pictures of baby blankets to knit on Pinterest? But when you follow the link, the blankets are anything but easy!

I have selected these 5 super easy patterns for baby blankets because they were rated easy by other knitters or labeled easy by the designer.

These patterns are great for beginners, although some might require knowledge of stitches beyond just knit and purl. See the Knitting Tutorials for tutorials of the stitches that may be needed for these patterns. (If there aren’t any tutorials, then they are still in the process of being added. Thanks for understanding.)

I hope you find them of value. Please let me know in the comments what other patterns you are searching for.

The One Hour Knit Stroller Blanket is a baby blanket small enough to not get caught in the wheels of your stroller or drag on the ground.  


2 skeins Cream Jumbo yarn

Needles: 10.00mm (US 15)

Knitted in Stockinette Stitch

Normally pieces knit with a Stockinette Stitch curl up at the sides, but since this yarn was so heavy it didn’t happen.This knitting pattern is really simple and it can be completed in under an hour.
