An easy-to-memorise 2-row repeating pattern with a subtle texture and no large holes make this blanket fast to work up as a baby blanket (or use the provided tips to enlarge it to any size). Choose two contrasting colours to crochet the eye-catching twisted edging (or omit the final row of the border for a faster finish).

Twist-Trim Baby Blanket will become your go-to pattern for baby shower gifts. It’s so easy to personalise by choosing different pairs of colours for the edging:

And of course you don’t only have to make a baby blanket with this pattern – it includes instructions so you can easily make an afghan of any size.

About the Pattern

This detailed pattern includes full written instructions, clear charted stitch diagrams, a two-page step-by-step appendix for the special twisted edging (included separately both for right- and left-handers), and bonus instructions for fixing the edging if you made a mistake anywhere earlier, so the edging colours will always match up seamlessly.

To save on paper and ink, you can print just the written pattern (2 pages) and/or the charts (2 pages) and view the photos, tutorials and other supporting content on-screen.

    T really likes his snuggly blanket! It’s so soft & cosy and as smart as the day it arrived as it washes & dries really well.
