Seaside Baby Blanket Knitting Pattern

Looks like I’m in baby blanket making mode again! I love to design so many types of patterns, but baby blankets are by far my favourite. I think it’s the simplicity and repetition. I love to always have a knitting or crochet project on the go, but I don’t always want to be thinking too hard about what I’m making. Baby blankets are perfect for this since there is no shaping involved. You simply repeat the same rows over and over until you have a cozy blanket to gift to the expecting parents in your life!

I named this blanket the Seaside Baby Blanket because the wavy pattern, created by combining knits and purls, reminds me of the ocean. The simple design creates the coziest nautical themed blanket that is perfect for cuddling up your little one for a cool evening stroll along the beach.

I had a lot of fun coming up with this pattern, and I hope you have just as much fun knitting it!

    1. Do you know how many grams, ounces, yards, or meters of yarn were used? I’m trying to figure out if one skein of Caron Jumbo would be enough? It is 12 oz/340g/659yd/602 m

    2. Just want to commend you on your pattern design. You really have a good math brain to figure the stitch pattern. I had made a mistake in row 14 and had to use my brain to correct, which I was able to, but made me realize how tricky the pattern repeats are. Just want to give you praise for the designs.
