Ultra Plush Weekend Baby Blanket - Free Crochet Pattern
Updated: Jan 22
Shhh... I have a confession. My family hates my crochet blankets. 😢 "They're too hole-y," they say. Plenty warm, but too many holes for little (or big) toes and fingers to poke through.
Thus began my quest for a yarn efficient, #frugalmom, super cozy crochet pattern to make the softest ever (but not hole-y) blanket.

Bernat Blanket yarn is ultra plush and makes THE MOST squishable blankets ever! I usually have a few of these blankets rolled up in a reed basket out in front of my booth at craft markets and they draw everyone in to touch and feel just how soft they are for themselves.
You can make this blanket in a weekend (or less, if aren't also parenting three rugrats) and it can be sized up with the addition of more yarn and longer foundation chain. Just two skeins will make a crib size blanket, and best of all the stitch pattern is interlocking for few holes for little toes to poke through.
