Crochet blankets are a popular item to crochet. Crocheting a special blanket for a new arrival in a family, or for a close friend, can become an heirloom that will be treasured for years. I still have the blanket my Great Grandmother crocheted for me when I was born and will keep it forever.
This was the thoughts behind my latest baby blanket pattern as I designed a classic look that could become a family keepsake. I am so excited to share the Timeless Treasures baby blanket crochet pattern.
Tested for Accuracy
Each pattern I release has been tested by fellow crocheters for accuracy and to help clarify anything that may be confusing. I have a group that does an outstanding job. When I put out a “testing call” for this design, I was very excited to get a few questions like:
“Can I make it in a single solid color?”
“Can I use more than two colors?”SP3 pattern testers
My response was an enthusiastic, “most definitely!”. I love when I can share what a pattern will look like with different colors or ways to give it an entirely different look. Check out how gorgeous their blankets turned out. You may find inspiration through these pictures.

Coordinating hat Pattern
Gifting a crochet blanket is a way to show how special such an occasion is, for a new mom to be able to wrap her new bundle of joy in a handmade blanket is priceless. It is such a personal gift that you really don’t need to gift more, however, if your a crochet addict like I am, I always want to make something to go along with it.
I designed a coordinating hat that is made up with my favorite stitch combo in the pattern (the part that looks like it’s striped) plus one of the repeated texture sections is used as the brim/base of the hat. It turned out so cute. Add this to your blanket and you’re sure to be the talk of the baby shower.
