Tenga Venga Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

I love these two coordinating colors of Red Heart Yarns Super Saver. So pretty and they work so well with this stitch pattern. This blanket is worked in an easy two-row repeat with both written and video instruction. The rows are so short that you can carry up the yarn along the side so you don’t end up with tons of loose strands to weave in. And then you have the adorable little shell border. It’s a wonderful project, especially for a baby shower, but you can also use the provided stitch multiple to make it any size you like.

Notes

Stitch pattern is any multiple of 8, plus 2.

When changing colors, there is no need to cut off each time. Change the color and drop the yarn not in use. Pick it back up again when you change again, carrying it along the side of the row. It will leave a small strand, but this will be covered up when making the first round of the Border.
