Block Stitch Baby Blanket or Throw

Block Stitch Baby Blanket or Throw



The Design

“Cuddly and cherished.”

This Free Churchmouse Pattern has been retired because the yarn we used for it was discontinued, or we no longer carry it.

This free pattern (see the tab at the top) makes the most out of Berroco Indigo, a soft and comforting recycled denim and cotton blend.

A super project for beginner and expert alike, this blanket has a repeating rhythm of stitches in the center surrounded by a simple seed stitch (you'll have the pattern memorized in short order).

You'll see instructions for two sizes. The baby blanket is just right for crib, car seat and stroller. Or upsize for a beachy throw or picnic blanket. Either way, it handles the washer and dryer happily.

But why do we really knit blankets? Well, they keep our babies warm and safe. Soon enough, the blankets become super hero capes. Then a protective play-fort roof. Then shared with family in the TV room. And maybe, just maybe, one will end up tucked into a pillowcase as your "baby" heads off to college. Time well spent.
