Back to that one stitch, I said I used for this design well; it was a single crochet stitch! (click through the link for a refresher on how to single crochet)

The entire blanket uses this simple stitch, which makes it an extremely quick crochet blanket to work up!

This pattern is a perfect crochet blanket for beginner crocheters or someone looking for a fast DIY project!

I have also designed a few other projects using single crochet’s that you may like too like the single crochet color blocked blanket and the single crochet chevron blanket!

THE YARN That’s perfect for this crochet baby blanket!

For this single crochet throw, I used Red Heart Gum Drop yarn in grape, which is a beautiful & silky soft yarn! The different shades of pink, purple and the pops of blue in it are just beautiful!

You can find this in most craft stores or on Amazon if you’d like it dropped right at your doorstep! (Me please!!)
