Beginner friendly patterns have always a joy to create for me and so I’m delighted to present my bobble stitch crochet blanket to you! Made here in bright and bold colours, it is a modern baby blanket but you can use any colours you like to tone in with whoever you are making for (or whatever yarn you have in your stash!).
Easy to adjust to any size and to use any yarn with, it’s a must make for everyone 🙂

More about this bobble stitch crochet blanket pattern
So this is what I came up with! I’ve used six different colours but think it would look amazing in just two or three. Or you could even go rainbow themed and change every row! The choice is yours.
The blanket is such an easy construction made in rows from the bottom up and the neat trick for the edges mean there’s no need for a border either!
How do you crochet a modern blanket like this?

If like me you love bobble stitches then make sure to check out some of my other patterns that use them: crochet napkin ring pattern (great for learning bobbles) and the diamond bobble stitch cushion cover.
Stacked Crochet Stitch
The beginning of Row 10 has the option to use stacked single crochet stitches to create a much neater edge to the blanket but you can use a regular turning chain if you prefer of course.
If like me you have loads of yarn in your stash then you might also enjoy my easy crochet blanket patterns for beginners that are great for stash busting!
The blanket is worked in Rows and you will turn at the end of each Row.
A ch1 at the beginning of a Row does not count as a stitch.
You can work either a ch3 or a stacked double crochet stitch (see special stitches above) at the beginning of a Row where indicated. (A stacked stitch is a great alternative to a turning chain).
Gauge and Sizing
Resizing the Blanket to use any Yarn
The simple stitch repeat means it’s really easy to resize the blanket using the recommended yarn or any weight that you’d like to!
To resize your blanket, chain any multiple of 6+4 for your Foundation Chain to set the width and repeat the Main Set Pattern as many times as you like for the height.
