Crochet Mini Blanket 18" x 18" - Pink & Blue Twin Set - FREE Pattern

The day after writing up the draft for the 10" x 10" Mini Blanket (back in May - yikes!), I drafted the following post on a 18" x 18" Mini Blanket. 

After completing my 10" x 10" Mini Blanket, I took a trip back to Joann's to get some more chunky yarn and start on a bigger mini blanket.

These mini blankets are great as photo props! They also work great for baby dolls!

     - L11/8mm Hook
     - Chunky Yarn (5) - I used about 146 yds (2 balls) of Deborah Norville's Chunky Serenity Yarn in Alaskan Blue and Lilac Chiffon.
     - Tapestry Needle for weaving in ends

Time Spent:
   I was able to complete this larger mini blanket and the matching hat in about an hour and 45 minutes.

   17" x 17" plus 1" border = 18" x 18"


   2 rows = 1.5". Border adds 1" to total.

   DC - Double Crochet
   SC - Single Crochet

     Chain 40. DC into the 4th chain, and in each chain across. (38 DC)

R2 - 25: Chain 2, and turn. DC into the 2nd DC, and in each DC across. (38 DC)

R26: Chain 2, and turn. DC into the 2nd DC, and in each DC across. (38 DC)

R27: Chain 1, and turn. SC in 1st DC, and in each DC across. (38 SC)

Border: (Add 2 SC to the last stitch (to create a corner), evenly SC along the side, and around the blanket until you reach the beginning of Row 27. Join to the first SC.

Fasten Off, and Weave in Ends.

  1. Awww, so cute! I like the addition of the button on the hats.

    I'd love if you'd link up at my first ever Yarn Fanatic Party!

    1. Thanks for the invite! Heading over right now!

  2. can I make pets mats out of 18 x 18 baby blanket?

    1. Absolutely. I recommend an acrylic yarn like Red Heart Super Saver, Bernat Super Value, or Caron One Pound - you can hold two strands together while crocheting to make a chunky strand. These yarns are very durable, and hold up really well to wear and machine washing and drying, and will get softer after washing. I made one for my cat, and he loves laying on.

  3. thanks. I always used red heart yarns (#4 medium weight )

  4. Do you have knitting version of this blanket?

    1. Welcome back! I don't currently have any knitting patterns on the blog, though I do have some in the works. I will put this request on the top of my list. Is your preference worsted weight yarn? Or a chunky version like this one?
