My sixth grandchild was born just a few days ago. As I’ve done for my other five grandchildren I made this grandson a crocheted blanket, actually I made him a couple of blankets. This one is a simple Cluster Stitch Crocheted Baby Blanket.
I found this free pattern by Leelee Knits. It’s simple and easy to make, easy enough for beginners!
For this Cluster Stitch Crocheted Baby Blanket I used 3 skeins of Lion brand Ice Cream yarn in Cookies and Cream color. I love the variegated colors of that yarn!
I pretty much followed the pattern, but I used a size K 6.5mm hook instead of the size J 6mm hook the pattern calls for. I wanted the stitches to be a little bigger and a bit looser. I tend to make my stitches tighter and I find that using a larger sized hook makes my stitches looser. But really you can use any size hook to make your cluster stitch crocheted baby blanket.
I also added 2 extra rounds for the border so my cluster stitch crocheted baby blanket came out just a bit bigger than the one in the pattern. Really you can make this blanket whatever size you want using any color you want.
