If you’re looking for a fun, quick project then you’ll love making this baby blanket. I designed it to be crocheted with a large hook and bulky weight yarn to build up super fast for those of you who don’t have the patience for larger projects. An added bonus – this thick and soft blanket is sure to keep your baby cozy and warm in the upcoming winter months.
When I heard that one of my favourite inexpensive worsted weight yarns – Knit Picks Mighty Stitch – is now available in a bulkier weight, I couldn’t wait to purchase some and try it out! I’m definitely happy with the result. Although its more like a heavy aran weight, rather than the bulky that its advertised as, this yarn is incredibly soft and I absolutely loved the colour selections.
I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page. You can also purchase the ad free instant download PDF file for easy printing and reading.

Cozy Clusters Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern
What you will need
Here is what you will need to make this gorgeous baby blanket:
This blanket measures: 24 Inches X 30 Inches
Cluster Stitch (CL) *Yarn Over, insert hook into specified stitch and draw up a loop to the height of a DC; Yarn Over and draw through two loops; repeat from * two more times in same stitch; Yarn Over and draw through all four loops remaining on hook; Chain one.
Note: This pattern uses the Cozy Cluster Stitch. For all of you visual learners out there, I have created a video tutorial on this stitch:
Chain 82 (or an even number of stitches to customize the size).
Row 1: SC in 2nd chain from hook and in next chain; *CH1, skip next ch, SC in next ch; repeat from * across to last 3 chains, CH1, skip next ch, SC in last two chains; CH4 (counts as a DC and ch-1 space of following row), turn.
Row 2: *Skip the sc, CL in next ch-1 space, CH1; repeat from * to the last ch-1 space, CL in last ch-1 space, CH1, skip next sc, DC in last sc; CH1, turn.
Row 3: SC in first dc, SC in first ch-1 space; * CH1, skip next CL, SC in next ch-1 space; repeat from * across, ending last rep with SC in turning chain space, SC in 3rd chain of turning chain; CH4, turn.
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your work measures 29 inches long.
Work around the border of the blanket evenly in single crochet for 2 rounds. Make sure that you do 3 SC in each corner of the border. If you don’t know how to do a single crochet border, this wonderful article explains it in detail.
Fasten off and weave in the ends!
