Rumi Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

Just about two weeks ago we welcomed our fourth nephew, Rumi, into the world.  I have to say… he is the sweetest, most handsome guy I’ve met in a long time!  Being his crazy crocheting aunt, I of course had to create a new baby blanket for the little man.  It took me a while to come up with this one.  I knew that I wanted to use more than one color, and I also had the goal of creating something that looked fresh and airy.   With a bit of trial and error, I came up with a quick building, simple pattern that I think you guys will love.

The yarn that I decided to work up this blanket with is  Paintbox Yarns Simply Aran.  I love this yarn because it’s soft, yet machine washable and durable (and also a great price!).  The blanket turned out super squishy and snuggly and I know that it will last through multiple washings.


I have written out and posted the free pattern for this baby blanket below on this page.

  12. This pattern is soooooo easy I love it, cause I donโ€™t have to look at the pattern when Iโ€™m working on it! Iโ€™m making it in pink ๐Ÿ‘

  13. I love this and I cannot wait to try it. However, I am a bit confused about the size difference between the chain 102 and chain multiples of 4 plus 2 (18). Could you clarify, please?

    1. Hi Katie, that means that if you want to make it wider then you chain a multiple of 4 and then add two. Hope that makes sense. All the best, Alnaar

    1. Hi Janie, you can find the link for where to purchase the Paintbox yarns in the list of materials above the pattern. You can use any bulky weight yarn, however if you want the same sizing and result its a good idea to use the suggested yarn.

  14. This is such a beautiful pattern! Thank you for sharing with the world your wonderful talent! I am looking forward to making this for a special little guy!
