Get the crochet pattern and tutorial on how to crochet this beautiful basket weave baby blanket. Be it as gift or for own use, it sure warms the heart of your loved one. I made this for my god son and hope that he will love this forever :)

Often, I received feedback from readers asking me where to get the yarns I used for my crochet and/or knitting projects. Frankly speaking, I bought most of my yarns from the local yarn shops around here and I do understand that it is hard for many of you to get the exact one. This time, to make my pattern more yarn-search-friendly, I used Lion Brand, a well known yarn company where you can order online or buy them from shop if they are available.

This blanket is made from cotton medium worsted yarn, the basket weave pattern makes it warm and cozy in cold weather. If you need a very warm version for snowy winter, change the yarn to wool. The dimension is for baby blanket, you can always blown it up to make a bigger piece. Each weave square repeats at 6 sts, so, to add width to the blanket, just add multiple of 6 sts to the width.

  2. I cannot bring up the pattern

  3. Cannot get the pattern. No PDF showing available and it will not print otherwise. Please help. This is the blue basket weave afghan baby blanket. Thanks

    • The pattern is written on the “grey sheet” on the second page (not PDF). If you would like to print, click on the green button at the end of the tutorial, it will generate a screen for you to edit, print and save the tutorial.

  4. Looking forward to trying this pattern. Thanks for sharing.

  5. Great pattern, but you may want to edit row one to indicate that you dc in each stitch across, not just the first two before chaining two and turning. 8-)

  6. Love this pattern! Have been in search of a nice looking baby blanket and so pleased with this one. Thank you!

  7. Hi I am Mamta, living in Parlin,NewJersey.
    I am 8th month pregnant and searching for crochet blanket for my expecting baby. So can you suggest me shop for the same? So I can go and purchase it. I tried on google but there is no option except online shopping. I want to go and purchase by my choice and feel,so please give the info as early as possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    Mamta Tare.

  8. Love this pattern! I’m working on my 4th blanket using this pattern and just realized I’d been making it different the whole time! (I tend to skim directions to quickly!) beautiful and so very warm!
    Thank you for sharing!

  9. I found this pattern on Ravelry, and completely fell in love. My son is about to turn two, but he’s still getting this for his Christmas! Not only is it beautiful, but it is the most addicting pattern I’ve ever worked with; I cannot put it down!


    Translation (by Google):

  11. Such a cute pattern! Ty! Ill be making several for my own 4 kiddos and all my nieces and nephews too!
    Quick question though, I’d like to make it a bit larger for the older kiddos… Say maybe 60wx50l-ish… What is the chain pattern please for making larger? Thank you so much!

  12. At the end of row 2/3 where it says deem chain as first stitch does that mean on 3 you go back into the hdc or that in row four you hdc around it to finish the row? Thanks. I’m confused?.?

  13. Hello!

    I love this blanket and want to make it for a friend who is giving her new baby’s room an elephant theme! I saw this blanket with an elephant on it… is there any way to get the pattern for the elephant?! I think that would be the perfect touch.


  14. I have made this blanket half a dozen times, at least! I love it, have to keep pinning it because I can never remember which board I pinned it to.
    Thank you so much for sharing, I have loved both making and giving this blanket so much, that for my grandma’s birthday present, I gave her yarn and this pattern to make one for herself. She taught me to crochet about 12 years ago and as my passion grew, her time allotted for herself dwindled. I’m so excited to share something she will enjoy making for herself!
    Thank you!!

  15. Lovely pattern. Thank you.

  16. Hello,

    I love this pattern, and I’m going to make it for my 1yo nephew’s christmas present. However, I’m having trouble finding the Lion’s brand cotton ease yarn around my local town. I was wondering what’s a suitable replacement yarn that may be easier to find?? Hobby Lobby doesn’t carry it and I don’t want to drive anywhere.

    Thank you and also for the blog post.

    • I am not sure what other brands that’s available at your locals has to offer. You may ask your local yarn shop if they have anything in the material you like that is closest to the crochet gauge of: 16 sc + 17 rows = 4 inches (10 cm) with size G-6 (4 mm) hook.

  17. Thank you for the quick response. I will check with the stores around here with yarn and anyone with half a craft brain, i.e. not Walmart ;) I seen several at Hobby Lobby so I’m assuming anything worsted (4) cotton would suffice to be equivalent? I will take note on those numbers and see what I can find. Again, thank you! I look forward to completing this blanket within a week of finding suitable yarn. Is this a place I can post a picture to once it’s completed?

  18. Hello again,

    I was doing some googling and found this site for any of those interested with concerns as did I have about substituting yarns.

    It offers each type of Lion Brand with equivalent substitutions for such yarn for whatever reason unable to be used or found.

    Thanks and have a great week!

  19. im currently making this wonderful blanket, but, my question is…how do you get your single crochet around the blanket, specifically, the sides, so even?? those sides are always weird looking and hard to gauge where the stitches are…is there a secret to it?

  21. just wanted to say i got the pattern to print as i used my own printer. i had no problem getting the pattern to come up. dont know why a few could not get it to print. thank you for the pattern. i am a grandma and great grandma.

  22. If I wanted to double the width do you know how many ch I would have to make to start?

    • As explained on page 1, “each weave square repeats at 6 sts, so, to add width to the blanket, just add multiple of 6 sts to the width”. All you need to do is just double the current number of chains, 2 x 156 = 312, to get the double width blanket.
      Hope this help :)

  24. Hi. Just wanted to say thank you for amazing pattern. Making my second one for friends expecting their first :) very addictive and easy for doing while watching a movie! Love it! We live in South Africa.

  25. Thank you for this pattern! I did one like this 34 years ago for my son. I remember I found the pattern in a Women’s Day magazine. I thought I had saved the magazine but I put it in a safe place, never to be found again. Thank you. Next grandbaby will for sure get one like this….

  26. i could not find the pattern-but would love to try it-

  27. Your pattern is awesome thanks for sharing it! A quick question, I want to make this using baby yarn that’s only 4ply, and advises a needle 3.25mm can I still make this following your pattern or should I increase you pattern by 1.5 as it’s thinner thread and a smaller needle? Thanks for your help : )

    • Yes, you can still use the same pattern but your weave pattern will appear to be smaller. Depends on your tension gauge, you will need to increase the number of stitch and row accordingly. Hope this help.

  28. Absolutely love this pattern. Thanks for sharing. Im a little bit confused, for row 2/3 its says to skip first st, hdc1 on the next st, does that mean to hdc into the post where I would fpdc or at the top in the stitch? Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question but have started crocheting a little while ago with the easy stuff.

    • The skip stitch is in fact the last dc of row 1, the hdc1 is done on the second last dc of the first row, then continue with the fpdc. Hope this explain, otherwise, let me know.

  30. I have almost completed row 2:
    Row 2 & 3 : skip first st, hdc1 on the next st, *FPdc3, BPdc3* repeat 25 times until last 2 sts. hdc2, ch2 (deem as first st for the following row), turn.

    For row 2 are the last 2 sts. of hdc2 a part of the last BPdc3?

    Also, when I get ready to turn for row 3, I start with *FPdc3, BPdc3* again, does this stack the FPdc and BPdc for 2 rows, then it changes for the next two?

    Can you add a picture of the end of row 2 going to row 3 with the labels?
