This gorgeous yarn was calling my name! And I knew the granny stripe stitch would work perfectly with it. So this fun little Retro Stripe baby blanket is currently on my hook! I am using Red Heart Super Saver Stripes yarn in color Retro Stripe. You can purchase it HERE on Yarnspirations.com or HERE on Amazon.com. I love the bright summer colors of this variegated yarn. Reminds me of sherbert ice cream! I am not separating the colors. You can crochet straight through the entire skein!
– Red Heart Super Saver Stripes Retro Strip Yarn (you will want at least 5-6 skeins)
– Size G Crochet Hook
– Tapestry needle
starting chain of 102 = 30 inches wide (baby blanket size)
I have created a YouTube video tutorial that I think will help tremendously! This is a very easy pattern but you have to be really careful with the beginning and ends of each row. The tutorial is only about 9 minutes long! I also have the written instructions and photo tutorial below.
Chain 102 (or 202, 302, etc)
NOTE: I am really bad at math but I think these numbers will work! I tested the 102 and 202 starting chain counts. Someone please help in the comments if you come up with other multiples!
Row 1: Make 3 DC in 6th chain from hook, skip two chains, 3 DC in next, skip two chains, 3 DC in next, repeat down chain making only 1 DC in the last chain, chain 3, turn
Row 2: 3 DC in first space from previous row, 3 DC in next space, repeat until you get to end, 3 DC in last space (this is your leftover chain 5 space from the beginning chain), then make a DC on top of the chain 3, chain 3, turn
Row 3: 3 DC in first chain space and the rest of the spaces in the row until you get to the end, make a DC in the chain 3 from the previous row, chain 3, turn
Row 4: 3 DC in first space, 3 DC in each of the spaces until end of row, make a DC on top of the chain 3 from previous row, chain 3, turn
now that you get the hang of it, continue making as many rows as you’d like!
I’m not finished with the blanket but I will be sure to post finished pictures when I am done! I will show you the finished size and any info about a border (if I decide to do one).
Here are pictures of the finished blanket! It ended up being approximately 33×36 inches and I used about 4.5 balls of Red Heart Super Saver Stripes yarn. I also used a bit of Red Heart Super Saver in white for two rounds of the border.
Border: two rounds of Single Crochet stitches in white. Try to work as evenly as possible around the edges making a SC + chain 2 + SC in each of the 4 corners.
The last round of the border you will make Double Crochets in each stitch with the Retro Stripe yarn. Make a DC + chain 2 + DC in each of the corners.
You could add pom poms or tassels to the corners. I made a chain 4 and then 6 DC in the last chain. Folded it and stitched it on each corner to look like a little puffed granny stitch.

Beginning chain should be in multiples of 3 for how you do the pattern, no other chains necessary. I did 141 for mine and it was perfect.
Thank you for that!
Theresa Burmeister says
Starting chain 102 (201) (300)
or multiples of 3 + 1

I recently started looking for baby patterns since my son and girlfriend are talking marriage. Nothing has been decided yet but I thought I should get a head start. I found a few patterns that I liked and then I saw this one. Fell instantly in love. I want to make this pattern with this yarn. Minor setback. I can’t find the yarn anywhere. Two sites have it listed as coming soon but it’s not soon enough since I wanted it yesterday! I intend to order enough to fill a courier truck. Actually, I love it so much I would if I could afford it. Thank you for making the pattern so easy to read. I will update if I ever get my yarn.
I’ve found it on Amazon!!!

Hi I watched a tutorial and I completed my first baby blanket I’ve only made two things this was my second thing ever crocheting and I need some help with the single crochet borders I just don’t know how to start and attach it is there anyway you could do a little video on that?
I love this blanket. Bright, fun to look at. I am going to make this. I have studied your pattern and I believe you can start with any multiple of 3. If in doubt about your number add the digits. Ex 144 is 1+4+4=9 divisible by three. 162 is 1+6+2=9 divisible by 3. 130 is 1+3+0=4 not divisible by 3. Good luck.
Omg! Thank you thank you! I have never seen it explained so simply.

I’m a beginning crocheter, and am Confused as to what you do after the first four rows. Which rows do I repeat to finish the blanket?
This response may be a bit late, but it is a repeat of rows 3 and 4 until you are happy with the length
This blanket is so pretty! You stated that you did not separate the yarn (for the same color rows) so does it just depend of the width of the project? I’ve never been able to make the same color rows with this type of yarn. I usually make larger blankets as well. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for sharing your pattern and the you tube video : )

Why didn’t you center the camera on your video tutorial ! Most of the time we couldn’t see what you were actually doing as you talked about it

Do you have a video on how to make this border with the pompoms? I would love to try this! Thank you!

I am curious why you used a G size hook with this yarn? It seems too small. I love the yarn and the pattern!
