Merry-Go-Round Baby Blanket to Crochet

Need a quick baby gift? This baby blanket is so easy to make that you will make it again and again. I'm on #3 already! LOL!

Work around and around like a merry-go-round in a continuous spiral without joining. Add a Tunisian style border of points or just keep going until you run out of yarn.

You'll need 900 yards of DK or sport weight yarn and a size G (4 mm) crochet hook). If you want a contrast border 800 yards of main color and about 100 yards for the border.

My blanket was made with Baby Bee Sweet Delight Prints in the green camo colorway and Sensations Cuddle in brown for the border. The blanket measures 37" across

I worked the blanket in edc (extended dc) because it is a taller stitch than a dc which means fewer rounds to work. You may substitute regular dc. The extra rows and stitches may require more yarn.

It's easy to make this blanket larger. You can substitute a different weight of yarn if you like. Change the hook to suit the weight of yarn you are using.

The 3 page pattern includes written instructions and a crochet symbol chart. The pattern is available in my Ravelry pattern store.
