Crochet Fish Baby Blanket Pattern -- Reversible (Fishy Little Baby Blanket)

Crochet pattern for a colorful and FULLY REVERSIBLE "fishy" baby blanket / young child's blanket.

This KnotYourselfOut crochet blanket is named: FISHY LITTLE BABY BLANKET.

I know I say it often, and here I go again: I really LOVE this cute and colorful baby blanket. I think the little fish are adorable, and I had so much fun designing them!

With this pattern, I have managed to incorporate the fish right "into" the background (versus sewing it on top of the background, which is what we often see in crochet). It was challenging! I started over endless times, but finally managed to figure it out. The design is actually quite straightforward to make.

I was inspired to create this blanket by the cutest pair of little girl rubber boots that I spotted in the park. They had tiny fish on them in similar colors.

Thank you for checking out my fishy little baby blanket!

This blanket measures approximately 26” wide and 28” long.

It would obviously make a lovely gift for any lucky baby, but because it is made up of one simple, repeated fish rectangle, it would be very easy to make a larger one for a young boy or girl. If you are lucky enough to have access to ocean side property, it would fit in beautifully there as a throw. And, of course, I think it would make a really special photo prop.

This crochet blanket pattern is suitable for an intermediate crocheter. It uses standard American (US) English crochet terminology. It has been tested for clarity and accuracy by a professional crochet designer. In addition, it contains many step-by-step how-to photos. I am confident this pattern will make for a happy crochet experience (and a very nice fish blanket).

I am available to answer questions, should you have any.

Thanks again for stopping by.

I absolutely love to crochet! My mother taught me how when I was five years old, and it occupied a lot of my childhood.

It was during my time living in Bulgaria, as a U.S. Peace Corps volunteer, that I first began to dream about writing and publishing my own crochet patterns.

As the years passed, work became my main focus, but I continued to dream about becoming a crochet designer and I collected inspiration from the many different places I was working in and traveling to: Bulgaria, Boston, Germany, Canada, Ireland (to name a few).

It was the birth of my son, ultimately, that finally gave me the opportunity to realize my dream. When my son was a baby, I wrote and published two crochet books (Painted Jute Rugs, Annie’s Attic, 2010 & Elegant Beaded Bags, Leisure Arts, 2013).

When my son began school my focus shifted to selling patterns online. I have been having the absolute time of my life -- crocheting, imagining crochet, writing about crochet, and engaging with many amazing crochet-lovers in online communities!

Home is now Toronto in Canada.

Thanks for reading my profile. I hope you will find a design in my shop that inspires you (the way it did me) to stitch up something beautiful.
