hello everyone today I'm going to show

you how to crochet this beautiful baby

blanket this one is pretty big I can't

even get it into the camera so I will

show you here on the smaller piece we

will be working only with our fingers

because we are using loop yarn which is

super super fun to work with my

six-year-old daughter has so much fun

making stuff with that and I also had so

much fun making this baby blanket it's

very very easy to do great for beginners

and just the softest baby blanket ever

and now I will show you what we need and

how to make this beautiful baby blanket

today we will need a pair of scissors

and our loop yarn I'm using the Alice a

poofy color and like you can see here

the whole scheme just has loops this is

not normal yarn this is a loop yarn of

course you can use any brand you like

but I have to say this is really the

softest yarn of the loop yarns I ever

had and for my baby blanket I used five

skeins of that is a political war but

like I said you can of course use

different brands but this is definitely

the softest and now I will show you how

to make this beautiful baby doll with

laying down our yarn because what we are

going to do here's my skein of yarn we

will be working back and forth back and

forth so you have to adjust the scheme

but to begin like you can see we are

starting here with a loop but what I

like to have is the beginning of the

yarn that I can sew it in and since it's

a loop there is no way to sew it in so

what we are going to do we are just

going to cut two loops open so just

insert your and scissors in between and

cut and now you can see here's our

beginning but I'm gonna cut one more so

I just have more yarn to sew in and you

just cut it open and here's our

beginning of day young and now we can

start working our pattern and now I will

show you how to measure or how to start

your baby blanket what I did I count it

for my baby blanket which is 32 inches

wide 50 loops today in this tutorial

I'll be working with 10 loops just to

show you how it works and if you want to

make a baby blanket in my size I counted

50 looks of course you can do 60 or 70

this is totally up to you and you can

see how wide it is on the loop side when

you count it for example when I have

here 10 and this is how wide my baby

blanket is going to be and my baby

blanket was 50 loops white once you done

counting your 50 loops we will need the

50 first loop here to start with I'm

working today only with 10 loops just to

show you how it works otherwise this

would be way too big for the camera but

you need the fifty first loop in my case

like I worked my baby blanket and what

we are going to do here is the fifty

first one in your case this is my

eleventh one and we are going to put

this yarn to the left and here is the

tenth loop or the fiftieth loop we need

to work in so we are going to start

first grab the loop and bring the loop

from the back to the front and pull it's

very important that you don't miss a

loop if you miss a loop you will see it

on the back side and then you have to

open everything back up which is really

not fun to do so take your time and make

sure you grab every following loop and

that you don't skip one so here's our

next one and now we have bringing the

back loop to the front loop

and we pull it from the front to the

back like that here's our next one the

next one again from the back to the

front like that here's our next loop

again put it to the front and now work

from the front to the back and now again

here's our next loop this loop here from

the back to the front pull up and now

from the back in front of the next loop

and from the front to the back and you

pull it through and this is our first

row repeat again the next loop here from

the back to the front and the next one

put it in front of the next loop and

pull from the front to the back and here

is my last two so again from the back to

the front and here again from the front

to the back and this is how our first

row looks like for the next row we are

not turning the working part we will

only move the yarn now we need it from

the left to the right so here's our last

loop and we need to work into the last

loop again to start the next row so grab

the loop and go from the back to the

front this is our boarder stitch and

here we start our pattern like you can

see you have two both loops coming up so

we are starting here again from the back

two

the front just like I said make sure you

don't skip a loop in the back and now

our next loop here we will need the loop

in the back and we are working from the

front to the back and pull up here's our

next loop and this loop we work from the

back to the front and again the next

loop we need to work in us here in the

back so from the front to the back and

the next one again from the back to the

front and you will repeat this in every

stitch so again the next loop from the

front to the back and here again from

the back to the front and you will

repeat this in every stitch so the next

stitch again from the front to the back

pull up and here is our last stitch so

again from the back to the front and in

this row you can already see how our

pattern starts to come at the end of the

row and now we are not turning our

working piece all we need to do is grab

the yarn we work with and lay it back to

the left this makes it easier okay so

here's our last loop we worked in and

it's also our first now for the next row

and we always need to make our border

stage and for the borders that you're

going from the back to the front like

that

it's very important not to forget the

first one to work in first for the next

row that it's nice and even okay and now

like you can see here appears our knit

stitch and here in the back is another

loop what's really easy now now you can

really see how you need to work those

stitches so if you take it like that you

can see we have some in the back and

some in the front those are the knit

stitches and those are our back stitches

so if you have the back stitch here what

you're going to do always is go from the

front to the back like we did before

it's all the same but now you can see it

a little bit better now here our next

stitch is where the knit stitch appears

so you are always going from the back to

the front and again the next stitch is

the one here in the back so go from the

front to the back and here again is our

next knit stitch like that and you go

from the back to the front it's like we

did before but now you can see it a

little bit better so again from the

front to the back here's our next knit

stitch so we are going from the back to

the front and that's all it is it's

super super easy to do and once you get

the hang out of it it's really so fun

and it grows so fast I'm here at the end

of my row now and the last stitch is

always a border stitch like on the first

stitch here and you always go from the

back to the front and now you can

already see this beautiful stitch and I

hope you can see how soft it is I just

love this yarn and it's so much fun to

work with and so now I will show you one

more time how to crochet the next row

and then I will show you how to attach a

new scheme of your so for the next row

again you are not turning this working

piece all you need to do is grab the

yarn you work with and pull it now from

the left to the right this makes it

easier

to work with here's our last stitch

which is our border stitch and also our

first stage for the next row so again

always go from the back to the front for

the border stitch and you get a nice

border of that the next stitch you can

see we have here is our knit stitch so

for the red stage again from the back to

the front and again the next loop is in

the back

so this one we are working from the

front to the back here again our knit

stitch so from the back to the front the

next one is in the back so from the

front to the back and it's just this one

row repeat and you see it's very very

easy to do again

he was our stitch knit stitch so from

the back to the front and the next one

is just from the front to the back and

here again from the back to the front

since it's our knit stitch and I am now

almost at the end of the row so this

stitch here again from the front to the

back and I'm now again here at my last

stitch and for the border stage we

always go from the back to the front and

you get this nice corner and now you can

see how beautiful this stitch is coming

along and now again from the right to

the left move your yarn how you need it

and just repeat this row over and over

again I will make a couple more rows and

then I will show you how to attach a new

skein of yarn and also how to finish off

your project so just keep repeating this

row over and over again

I repeated the row a couple more times

and now you can see the stitch even

better on the backside it looks the same

so like I said it's a very very easy and

great pattern for a beautiful baby

blinking and now I will show you how to

attach a new skein of yarn so let's say

you here on the end what I always like

to do I own always use three loops so I

have five here in total or one two three

four five six so I keep working three

more loops until I have three loops left

so one more loop and now what I'm going

to do is just cut those loose open so I

have a nice string of yarn so I can

attach then you want so just cut it open

and here cut it open and the last one of

course you can only cut to open if this

is enough for you but I always like to

have a little bit longer tail to work

with and here's our new skein of yarn

and I will do exactly the same here too

so here's our one and here again I would

cut I will cut three loops open two

and three so all we have to do now is

attach those two together and I always

do it or with this yarn you do it with a

knot

so here's our first one from the new

skein so just grab it and make a knot I

always like to make about three nuts so

it holds really good and three you have

two options now you could cut the yarn

or you just leave it and sew in the ends

on the end like you would do on your

normal crochet project so just put this

one does it the turn through the back

and now you can repeat I'm crocheting

your pattern so the tails are now here

in the back and now this is my first

loop from the new skein and I can repeat

my pattern like I did the other rows and

this is how you attach a new skein of

yarn and now keep repeating this row

over and over and in a minute I will

show you how to finish off your project

when you are done and you got your

desired height you want for your baby

blanket we can finish off what's really

important is for example when you finish

off on your right like here's our

working yarn you need to start on the

left side on the left loop here if you

finished on the right on the left side

here if your yarn is so go on that side

you need to start from the right side so

always the opposite side so to finish

off your project we will start with the

first loop here and we will take the

next one and go from underneath

tilt up from the back to the front

here's our next loop on the back we will

be working in so again from the back to

the front and this is the whole repeat

for the last row so here's our next one

so again from the back up and again from

the back and you will repeat this with

every loop so from the back pull up here

is our next one again from the back pull

up and this is how our Porter looks like

and you see it makes a beautiful and

nice finish to your baby blanket so keep

repeating this until you get to your

last stitch so again from underneath to

the top and pull through and this is how

it looks like once you on your last loop

we can finish off are we going to do now

is just cut our yarn like three loops

apart and now just cut those loops open

so just cut through all the way until

you get to your last loop here's the

next one just cut this one open - I

always like to have a long tail to sew

in and once you cut the loops open put

your finger through now grab the yarn

pull through and just pull tight you can

either cut the yarn or you can sew in

the yard and then you are done it's very

easy to do you can use a crochet hook

for this or you can use a yarn needle

this is totally up to you and now I will

show you how

to do this with so I'm using a six point

five millimeter crochet hook like you

can see on here and now just go through

grab the yarn and pull through the loop

and just do this back and forth all the

way along until your yarn is sown in

it's very very easy to do you could even

do it with your fingers if you want but

it makes it a lot easier if you use a

normal crochet hook so just pull through

a couple times and then we can cut the

yarn in just a moment so pull through

pull up make sure it's not too tight and

grab your scissors and cut your yarn and

we are done and this is how it looks

line all your ends you are done I really

hope you enjoyed how to make this

beautiful baby blanket in this beautiful

knit stitch of course I would love to

see your finished projects with this

yarn or with this pattern you can find
