Baby blanket crochet patterns, for me, have 3 main criteria:
Avoid holes for tiny fingers to get stuck in Keep it simple. I’m not one for complicated designs or too many colors. Keeping it simple means its more likely to get used over and over and passed down to the next generation. Unisex is best. This also means it can easily be used by brothers & sisters and become a family heirloom. The Compostela Blanket ticks all the boxes! Although scalloped crochet edge baby blanket patterns are often more feminine, I find this large-scale version to be modern and unisex. I would have gladly wrapped my baby boys in it when they were newborns.
But the Compostela Blanket is not just an easy baby blanket crochet pattern. The pattern comes in 5 sizes: lovey, baby, receiving, throw, and king. Choose more adult colors for a gorgeous throw or bedspread.
Designed in a classic worsted weight acrylic yarn, you can easily dive in your stash to make yours!

Knitting with Chopsticks
I’m Hortense, a passionate knitter, crocheter and yarn addict. I created Knitting with Chopsticks (www.knittingwithchopsticks.com) to share my creations and help you make your own.
It’s thanks to blogs that I have learned most of what I know about knitting and crochet. My mom taught me the basics of knitting whe n I was a small girl, bored on the beach (yep, that’s possible when you are 10) and since then I haven’t stopped. Always looking to learn, do more, do better and share my love of yarn, I created Knitting with Chopsticks to make knitting and crochet as simple as it gets so YOU can create what YOU want the way YOU want it.
Engineer by trade, crafter by passion, you will usually find me playing with some yarn while watching the latest episode of Grey’s Anatomy (and probably eating some chocolate, I’m from Belgium, what can I say?).
