Cluster Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

cluster stitch crochet baby blanketI like crocheting, rather than knitting blankets for babies and adults, because crocheting is so much faster. This is a cluster stitch crochet baby blanket. The cluster stitch creates a lovely lace-like look.

Here’s a video on how to crochet the cluster stitch.

Materials Used:

Cluster Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern:

  • Chain 84 (multiple of 3)
  • Row 1: Make the first cluster in the 5th chain from the hook. the first 3 chains count as a double crochet. Work a V cluster part 1, chain 2, work V cluster part 2 in the same chain space. Skip 2 chains, work a V cluster in the next chain – repeat across. Double crochet in the last double crochet. (You should have 27 clusters.)
  • Row 2: Chain 3, turn, work a V cluster in each chain 2 space (that’s the center of the previous clusters) across. Finish with a double crochet in the last stitch which is chain 3 of the previous row.
  • Repeat for length of project.*
  • For border, double crochet around entire blanket with 2 double crochet stitches in the corners. If doing this again, I’d make the border more substantial by adding another row of stitches and a picot or scalloped edge. You can do this too.

*Note: My finished blanked is 30 x 35 inches.

    This pattern is beautiful!! I am currently working on a three piece set for my sisters twins!! They are due in April…so they are going to be spring time babies. Still on the cool side, but not overly cold. The beanies I made have a similar look so this will match perfectly! I also made them booties that will fit right in with them. I am so excited I can not wait to finish it and put it all together!! Thanks again for sharing this!!

    I love the little baby blanket; this will be a new stitch for me. Your video is
    excellent. Just one question – how much yarn do I purchase to make the 30×35 inch
    blanket in your instructions? Thank you!

      Hi Joan,

      I wrote that I used two skeins on Ravelry, but now when I reflect on it, it could have been three. I’m sorry I can’t be more accurate. I can only say for sure that it is no more than three.
