The Spring Meadow Baby Blanket is a beginner-friendly pattern with so many possibilities. It’s light and airy, but cozy and comfortable. The design was inspired by the gorgeous Paintbox Yarn color packs by LoveCrochet. The time it takes to crochet this blanket depends on how fast you crochet, how much time you have to dedicate, and the size of the yarn and hook used. For this particular design, I used a medium weight yarn and a 6mm crochet hook. This baby blanket primarily uses single crochet, but it works up a lot quicker than what you’d expect!
If waiting is killing you and you hate to wait for a pattern’s parts to realise, here is a CAL already published in full. Since the Meadow Blanket CAL was published throughout Janurary and February 2021, it’s fully ready for you to start. Most important, the meadow stitch is simple and easy to memorize. Therefore, in the pattern, you will also find useful tension recommendations and a color sceme, so this is a perfect project if you are a newbie and need specific instructions.

"The Flower Meadow Blanket is a beautifully textured square blanket made with simple stitches and a gorgeous flower edge detail! Main body of the blanket is the simple Moss/Linen stitch and the flowers are crocheted directly into your blanket - no sewing required! Approximate finished size: 42” x 42” square Make the blanket to any size just by repeating your 1 row repeat! You could also skip the flowers altogether and make a beautifully simple blanket in the Moss/Linen stitch."
"The Percy Pig baby blanket has been on my list for a while to do and i really love how the pattern has turned out with all those cute little piggy faces! It did take some time trying to get the ears and the nose right though mind you but after changing it a couple of times i am actually really happy how this turned out even though it ended up a lot bigger then what i originally planned! For this crochet filet blanket pattern i used Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran for the main part of the blanket in the color Paper White, this is a filet crochet blanket pattern meaning the crochet pattern is worked in double crochet stitches and chain spaces to create a design like this, this is quite an easy pattern to follow and i have added an extra bonus in the paid pattern that will make it much quicker to work up instead of reading the pattern line by line."
This crochet blanket is made from a simple set of nine basic crochet granny squares. What makes it so unique and special are the color choices for each of the squares, which are explained in the free tutorial.
The Lydia Blanket is primarily intended to be a baby blanket, and uses the Scheepjes Cotton 8 yarn, perfect for baby’s sensitive skin. Of course, because of the repeating pattern, you can also make a much larger blanket or throw project out of this. The stitch is light, airy and a great combination of warmth and breathability, and, last, but not least, very, very attractive.
