Crochet Three Color Granny Stripe Celebration Blanket

Hello friends! Thanks for stopping by for the Crochet Three Color Granny Stripe Blanket pattern. I made this to celebrate baby Jack’s three-year-old birthday. We took him to Disneyland! I thought we might need a stroller blanket to keep the babies warm as we stayed out late into the night. 

Or, as it happened, to snuggle Jack as he took his naps.

I think we literally wore him out with all the fun. The colorful black, red, and white blanket also helped us find the stroller easily. If you’ve been to Disney, you’ll know it’s a sea of stroller parking in the kid’s areas. We’d lay our blanket across the top so we could easily locate the stroller. It came in so handy. 

Our baby Kate looked adorable too with the blanket and her mouse ears. She had just as much fun.

I used three colors so I wouldn’t have to carry across the rows. I never cut yarn either, just kept switching colors each row and carrying the colors up the sides of the blanket. At the end I used a simple single crochet border to cover the ends that I carried. 

It was super fun to make and I’d like to experiment with even more colors. You really can’t go wrong with a classic granny stripe blanket. 

I did have time to make a tutorial, however I used Red Heart Super Saver for the demonstration. The pattern will be written for Caron Simply Soft. Basically, any 4 weight yarn will work, or any yarn you choose. I’m including the pattern repeat so you can make the base chain the width you need. 

I used the entire 3 skeins for the blanket and then another skein of white for the border. That was for a 30×30 stroller blanket size, so don’t forget to buy more yarn if you’d like to make this larger. 

Here’s the video if you’d prefer, or scroll to the end of the post for the free printable pdf. (And I’ll add more photos of our little trip! xo.
