Modern Crochet Blanket for Babies – Peaches and Teal Pattern

Clever stitch combinations and subtle textures make the Peaches and Teal blanket the perfect gender neutral modern crochet blanket for babies.

Featuring crochet overlay sections to get amazing colour work and simple filet sections to add beautiful drape, this blanket is one you will want to make again and again.

About the Peaches and Teal Modern Crochet Blanket

Whether you are a beginner wanting to learn new techniques and stretch your crochet knowledge, or if you have experienced hands that fancy a TV project to work on in the evenings, this crochet blanket is for you!

The simple stitch repeat of each section means that there are only three elements to learn for the blanket but the colour placement throughout makes it appear far more complicated than it is.

Crisp, clean edges and solid bands between sections make the blanket modern, stylish and gender neutral too.

Anyone who knows me knows that I love designing and making a crochet blanket for babies! I’d love for you to explore the rest of my free crochet blanket patterns if you’d like to.

Yarn

To make the Peaches and Teal crochet blanket I used Sublime Baby Cashmerino Silk DK which is 75% merino wool, 20% silk, 5% cashmere, 50g/116m and literally feels ‘sublime’. I realise that sounds cheesy but it really is!

You will need: 2 balls each: Squash (666), Splash (124), Little Linen (344) and Pebble (006)

A great alternative is Capra Double Knit Yarn by WeCrochet which is 85% fine merino, 15% cashmere, 123yds/50g and comes in beautiful colour choices.

Take a look at the yarn I used here.

Sizing

The finished blanket measures 80 cm x 60 cm, tension isn’t essential for this project but might affect the amount of yarn you use.
