cluster stitch crochet baby blanketMy 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.
