"Looking for a gender neutral baby blanket to gift to expecting parents? Look no further. This crochet pattern for a gingham baby blanket will be the perfect gift for any parents who are keeping their baby's gender hush-hush. You will need to know how to chain, single crochet, and slip stitch. This baby blanket with my tension ended up approximately 37 inches x 33 inches. My swatch of 10 stitches x 10 rows is approximately 2.5 inches x 2.5 inches. My baby blanket is 15 blocks wide and 13 blocks tall (block = 10 st x 10 rows), you can alter this as you see fit to make a larger or smaller blanket. I prefer to end each row and column on an odd number so that all corners end in white, for example. All pictures and patterns are copyright of The Loophole Fox unless otherwise noted.

Here's a super quick project using Bernat Blanket yarn for the kiddos in your life. What's cuter than a Fox Pillow to snuggle up with or open him up and lie your head on?! I used a 12”x22” pillow form (or you could opt to use Polyfil). For the face, I used a small amount of Polyfil. With the basis of my pattern, you can change up your yarn color and make virtually any animal you would like. My two youngest grandsons really love this fox - only problem is, though, is that they want to ride him like a horse...lol.
Gingham Squares Baby Blanket
Have you ever wanted to make a gingham baby blanket but didn’t want all the color changes? The Gingham Squares baby blanket is made by working each square separately, while holding 2 strands of yarn together. By changing the colors of the 2 strands you're holding together you get the fade effect of having lighter washed out colors of the same kind. No color changing used. When you're done you sew all the squares together.
