Whether you are a parent with young children, or you just love making gifts, the Cuddle Robot Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is a delight to make and produces a beautiful and practical keepsake that will be treasured for many years.
Cuddle Robot now features on his own blanket. This pattern is easy to make but not boring, as you watch the little robots quickly come to life by your hands. Make it all in one colour or choose your own beautiful colour scheme.
The crochet pattern includes:
- Standard US and UK instructions
- Clear photos to guide you to success
This is an easy level crochet project; it is suitable for those that have practiced the basics of crochet and are ready for their next project. The techniques involved are US single crochet (UK double crochet), US double crochet (UK treble crochet), bobble stitch, chaining, and working in rows.
The blanket is 42 inches wide and 51 inches long (approx. 107cm wide and 130 long).
It can be purchased as part of the Cuddle Robot Baby bundle on Etsy or Ravelry, along with the Cuddle Robot Cushion Crochet Pattern and Cuddle Robot Toy Crochet Pattern. The blanket crochet pattern can be also purchased separately on Ravelry.
Usually most of my finished crochet projects are claimed by my girls, so when I found out that my friend was expecting, I was super excited to get the crochet hook and yarn out. It’s not everyday that I get to crochet for a baby.
What would a beautiful yet practical gift look like? It needed to be stylish but sweet, just like my friend. I was also in the mood for a larger project. It had been a while since I worked on a large project, however lockdown had just started and with after-school clubs and socialising paused I had plenty of time in the evenings to devote to my favourite hobby of crochet.
I started to come up with ideas that were both cute and gender neutral, because we didn’t know the gender of the baby. A couple of sketches later, I had a shortlist- bobble stitch, squares, hearts, robots. Well, I thought, let’s see what I can come up with. I wanted to create a matching set, that would be useful as well as look good, so I chose a blanket large enough for a baby or toddler, a cushion for Mummy to use in the nursery and a little toy that would complete the collection.
I had wanted to design a piece using bobble stitch for a while and this seems like a good time to do so. I started drawing basic robot shapes until I found one that I liked. The next decision was colour choice; I went for a beautiful colour palette of soft grey, mint green and snow white in a lovely baby soft yarn. I completed the blanket with a large border of hearts around the robots.
Hopefully my friend is pleased with the end result. I can see myself having to make another one soon, my eldest daughter loves the little robots. She wasn’t very impressed when I explained the blanket wasn’t for her. You can find the crochet pattern for Cuddle Robot Baby Blanket along with the Cuddle Robot Toy and Cuddle Robot Cushion available on Etsy or Ravelry.
