Back in 2010, I had a “learn how to crochet” party with some pretty cool teenagers. In fact, they brought over all their yarn and taught my daughter and me how to do a simple crochet stitch. It wasn’t long after that party that I wanted to learn harder stitches, or something other than the normal single stitch. I started browsing you tube and found an awesome woman called The Knit Witch who teaches you stitches like the double and triple crochet, and then even slows it down so you can see exactly how to do it.

It’s because of her videos that I was able to teach myself other stitches. Now, I love making baby blankets for people. In fact, to date,  I have made about 10 different baby blankets for friends and family members. They are easy to make, so here are my instructions on how to crochet a baby blanket.
