Crochet hoodie blanket – free pattern!

hooded baby blanket

In response to a few emails, here is the pattern for my hoodie baby blanket – Please email me if you have any trouble with the directions – this is my first take at writing a pattern so it might be kind of sloppy =o) I even had the courage to add this to Ravelry! Any feedback will be greatly appreciated.

**UPDATE** My apologies to everyone for a major oversight in the pattern. The directions on how to begin the hoodie section were missing. I have uploaded a new pdf to both the download link and to Ravelry. Please feel free to email me if the pattern is still unclear, and a special thank you to Turquoise for pointing out the problem to me!

I just want to point out one thing about the ties on the hood: Do not make them long enough to actually tie under the baby’s chin – that would be a hazard and the ties are not intended to be used in this way, they are just there as decoration, and to make the hood a little snugger when needed.

Edit: You can now download my pattern here:

    This is such a beautiful blanket and so very easy once you understand how to do it. It took me a couple “redo’s” before I understood the pattern. I am making these to take to Kenya Africa on a Humanitarian trip with my husband and others in January where we will be working in Orphanages and the village hospital. These will make wonderful blankets to give to newborns. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

    Can I sell this? (not the pattern only the finished product)

    First I love this blanket. Next I have started the hoodie a few times and it just doesn’t look like I am doing something right. When I am suppose to go one ss past the last crochet is that ss to go into the next SC in the last row of the blanket every time or just the turning chain of a previous row? I hope that I explained that clear enough.

    I am having trouble with it too. Row 3 just doesn’t seem right

  12. March 22, 2014 at 6:19 pm

    I am having trouble with the blanket too. Row 3 just doesn’t seem to work out. I have already undone and tried again 6 times. I am self taught and kinda new at crochet but I have tried everything and it still doesn’t work out.

  13. March 22, 2014 at 6:20 pm

    Or is it row 4? anyways can’t get past that

    • March 25, 2014 at 2:21 pm

      Hi everyone
      I’m sorry the blanket is giving you trouble! I’ve read through row 3 and it works out for me, so I’m going to look into possibly doing a video tutorial to help folks through this stage, and also the stage where you start the hoodie which seems to be the other rough patch. Hopefully I can get to that soon!

    I did not make this with the hood. I used the pattern to make 4 squares that I seamed together for a beautiful baby blanket. According to my friend who received it all of her friends want one too. Thanks for the wonderful no hole pattern.
