Sherpa Baby Blanket Photo Prop Free Crochet Pattern

Making this project was so fun! The yarn is scrumptious and delightful. You will have an easier time of it if you feel your stitches. The finished project is light and warm and so so soft!

Technique: Regular Crochet

This is a lovely little blanket. It’s gorgeous for a photo prop. It’s lightweight, fluffy and warm and made to look like faux shearling, or sherpa. I’ve used this yarn before in my Love My Sheep Pillow. It’s so soft and squishy, softer than cotton. It’s just beautiful.

Notes

The yarn used isn’t the easiest. You need to stitch quite loosely and you have to use feel most of the time instead of sight. It is well worth the end result. Try to count the stitches in every row to ensure that you have the correct number. The stitch count is the important thing. If you are off a stitch or two, just add it on the next row because, just as difficult as it may be to work with this yarn, it’s also very good at hiding any mistakes.

I was able to find this yarn at Wool Warehouse. They ship to the US at reasonable rates and wonderful, friendly service.

Note that this project is worked in front loop only single crochet throughout. The front loop is the one closest to you as you stitch into it. The term “front loop only” doesn’t necessarily mean the literal front loop of the single crochet. It’s the loop closest to you… at the time you make the stitch.
