The lacy baby crochet blanket pattern fits perfectly between a thick and light baby blanket and is also gender neutral.

This lacy baby blanket is perfect for all weather. Yes, despite the lace details, it keeps the baby warm even in cold weather. The pattern uses basic crochet stitches that can be mastered by any level of crocheter.
How long does it take to crochet a baby blanket?
In as much as we crochet at different speeds, making a lacy crochet blanket works up pretty quickly that you can complete your very first blanket just within a few days.
If you are a beginner, the right way to calculate this would be – by crocheting a few rows per day. Since this soft, lacy blanket is a repeat of just basic rows, you do not need to follow the written instructions each time. You get to master the instructions and can continue the repeats until your desired length. Bear in mind that baby crochet blankets are so fun to make, this was made within a few days.
Details in this lacy crochet blanket pattern
The beautiful edges/border of this baby blanket was designed using the fillet crochet technique. Not to worry, what this means is that the lacy part uses a combination of double crochet stand chains. This creates a beautiful look around the blanket. Plus, the beautiful lacy edging in this baby blanket adds a chic look and can be made in colors of your choice.

The standard baby blanket size is 36 inches by 46″ This is however not cast in stone as you can vary the size of your blanket according to different variables such as -the age of the baby, type of yarn, yarn size, the season of the year and so on.
