Lovingly Hooked

Life of a Crochet Addict

Plaid Baby Blanket


One of my favourite reasons to crochet is the exciting news that a friend or family member is expecting a new little baby. Whether its booties, little hats or blankets – baby crochet projects are so fun because you can’t help but think about the end result being put to use.

Recently I was preparing for a baby shower and coming up with ‘that perfect gift’ when I decided it was a great time to try a tartan style pattern, something I had debated trying many times. The result?



This is a style of doing blankets that you can find on many blogs and sites as far as a pattern goes. I followed the pattern on the Odd Crochet Patterns blog which can be found HERE. This isn’t a beginner technique as it does require that you do have some control over your tension while working or else it will bunch up and not lay flat. It isn’t an overly advanced technique though, definitely something I recommend giving a try!

I love the end result. It made for a beautiful blanket! Enjoy!
