Crochet Angels Love Baby Blanket
Hi everyone, I hope you are well. Today I wanted to show you how to create the most beautiful baby blanket. It is about how to crochet The Crochet Angels Love Baby Blanket. This project was an absolute delight to crochet, and filled me with so much love and joy. I hope you enjoy making it too!
Gorgeous and easy, I filmed a step by step video for Youtube which is perfect for beginners too: Crochet An Angel’s Love Baby Blanket Video Tutorial
An Irish Blessing inspired The Crochet Angels Love Baby Blanket
I was inspired to make and call this baby blanket as there is an Irish blessing that says that when you find feathers on your path, it means an angel has been by.
I love this so much, and felt inspired to crochet a blanket that represent everything this saying means to me. Indeed, I often find feathers around my little baby boy. I always feel that he is protected by beautiful angels… This piece of crochet is to honour their presence, and the fact that they protect my wee boy, and all other babies and children in this world.
A very easy Baby Blanket
This is a very easy baby blanket pattern. It is created firstly by crocheting a square with repeats of Half Double Crochets. I chose to make this part just one block colour, created with Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in shade Light Blue. You can easily replace this yarn by another shade of this collection, or any other yarn in Aran/Worsted size 4.
Crochet Angels Love Baby Blanket: it’s all about the yarn
I absolutely adore this yarn. It is so soft, and absolutely perfect to crochet baby items with. It is very squishy, and glides onto the crochet hook very well, so it really is a delight to work with. I love Lion Brand yarns so much, as they are always such great quality, and never disappoint me.
Let me know if you love their yarns as much as I do! I know living in the UK I have to order their yarns online. However it is definitely worth it, as I love all their different collections and colour schemes. You probably noticed this already if you look at all my crochet projects on this blog!
About the pattern
Once the colour block made from Half Double Crochets is made, the shell stitch border is added in Sirdar Supersoft Aran in shade Cream. I really like this yarn too, and can by it directly from a shop. I can actually buy it from the department store I work in at the week-end, so it’s very convenient for me. Which worsted/Aran yarn do you love or prefer? I love to know your opinion about yarns and techniques, and connecting with the beautiful crochet family that we have!
Once the beautiful cream border is completed, I made three different feathers out of a thinner yarn. I thought it would look more delicate on this baby blanket. I used a cream DK/ light 3 yarn that I already had at home, and you can use any yarn that you prefer too. The feather pattern was created by me especially for this project, and I love it. I made them in different sizes as I love the effect it has on this sweet baby blanket. After that, I placed them in the corner, where I sewed them on. I think they look really beautiful, and add a special kind of magic to this project!
A warm baby blanket
Because this blanket is created with worsted weight yarn, it is lovely and warm. I use it as a pram blanket for my baby boy. Indeed, it’s perfect for those chilly British mornings when you just need that extra warmth to keep your little one cosy.
I love the pattern and colours in this blanket, and I really enjoyed working with block colours. It’s a nice change from variegated yarns that I love to use, especially for blankets. Let me know what you think of this project, and please do tag me if you crochet it.
