Looking for a unique and cuddly gift for the little one in your life? A crochet baby blanket
in the shape of a teddy bear is sure to be a hit! In this guide, we'll show you how to make a soft and cuddly teddy bear baby blanket step-by-step.
What You Will Need:
- Crochet hook (Size H)
- Yarn in the color of your choice for the blanket (we recommend a soft and fuzzy yarn like Bernat Pipsqueak)
- Yarn in a contrasting color for the teddy bear (brown is a classic choice)
- Tapestry needle
Begin by making a foundation chain of 70 stitches using your chosen yarn color for the blanket
Double crochet into the fourth chain from the hook, and in each stitch across the row. You should have 67 stitches on your hook.Step 3:
Chain two and turn your work. Double crochet into the back loop of each stitch across the row.Step 4:
Repeat step 3 until your blanket measures approximately 30 inches in length. This will create the body of your blanket.Step 5:
Once your blanket body is complete, it's time to add the teddy bear. To do this, crochet a teddy bear shape and sew it onto the top of the blanket. There are many patterns available online, or you can create your own using a basic teddy bear shape.Step 6:
Once the teddy bear is attached, add a border to your blanket. To do this, work a row of single crochet stitches around the entire blanket, making sure to work three single crochet stitches in each corner stitch to keep the corners square.Step 7:
Repeat step 6 with a second row of single crochet stitches. This will create a thicker border and add some extra durability to your blanket.Step 8:
When your border is complete, fasten off your yarn and weave in any loose ends with a tapestry needle.
Use safety eyes and a nose to add some personality to your teddy bear.Tip 2:
Experiment with different colors and textures of yarn to create a unique and personalized blanket.
