Don’t you just love those extremely soft blankets they sell in baby giftstores ?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if you could make those blankets yourself ? Face it, they’re quite expensive if you want to buy one. 100 euro for a blanket that’s barely a square meter is not a rarity. For me personally it’s a bit overpriced for a gift.
But don’t worry, we crocheters can do better than that.
What would you think about a blanket that’s at least as soft and beautiful as the expensive one, but would only cost you some balls of yarn. Heck for all I know you might even already have some great yarn in your stash!
Wanna know I did it ? Here’s how.

Materials needed :
10 mm Tunisian crochet hook
4 balls Aran weight EXTREMELY soft yarn (I used Lana Grossa Leggero, some kind of fleece yarn)
8 balls DK weight fashion yarn (I used Schoeller Wolle Anabelle, some kind of bouclé yarn)
- Make a chain of approx. 1 meters long (max. 1m20)
- Make a foundation chain in Tunisian Simple stitch (tss).
- Keep making those tss until your blanket has the desired length. Change color every start of a forward pass and every start of a returning pass.
- slip stitch along the edge of the last row. Done!
