15 Free Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn Crochet Patterns

Are you looking to try your hand at crocheting with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn? Perhaps you want to make a cute baby gift, or maybe you just enjoy the luxurious softness of this fibre. Whatever the case is, unless you’re planning to freehand it, you’ll need some fun patterns to get you started. We’ve put together a list of our favourite 15 crochet patterns using Bernat Baby Blanket. But before we jump into those, let’s learn a little more about this yarn.

What Is Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn?

Bernat Baby Blanket is a super bulky, super soft chenille-style yarn. It is 100% polyester, making it quite easy to work with, even for less experienced crocheters. It comes in an array of solids, stripes, and variegated colour combinations. Its variations typically include various shades of blue and pink, although other colours are available. Being a super bulky yarn, Bernat Baby Blanket requires a crochet hook size K (although you should always follow the hook size recommendations cited in the pattern).

15 Free Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn Patterns

Ready to try out some fun projects with this yarn? Check out our top 15 free Bernat Baby Blanket yarn crochet patterns.

Free Leafy Time Bernat Baby Playmat

The first pattern on our list is the free Leafy Time Bernat Baby Playmat. Create a beautiful leaf-shaped, tri-colour playmat using three skeins of Bernat Baby Blanket in the shades of your choosing. This is an intermediate-level project, so be prepared for a little bit of a challenge. Additionally, since this is a double-layered playmat, you will technically need to make two leaves and join them together, so this project will also keep you occupied for a while. 

Free Gingham and Flowers Crochet Baby Blanket

The second project we have for you is this free Gingham and Flowers Crochet Baby Blanket pattern. This is yet another intermediate-level project, and it requires six skeins of yarn in five different colours. On top of the blanket itself, you will also need to crochet the flowers, which you will then attach to the blanket. 

Free Puffy Bernat Yarn Baby Blanket Pattern

Looking for something more beginner-friendly? Then this easy-level free Puffy Baby Blanket pattern will do the trick. You will need seven skeins of yarn in a single colour. Since we want the blanket to be puffy, that means that the stitches will need to be larger. That is why this pattern calls for a size P hook and a gauge of three clusters and three rows per 4”. 

Free Simple Baby Blanket Pattern

For an even more beginner-friendly project, try this free Simple Baby Blanket pattern. Even though it is multicoloured, it actually uses six balls of a single shade (the original uses Peachy, a beautiful combination of pinks and oranges, but you’re free to use any shade you prefer). This is a great project if you’re at the very beginning of your crocheting journey and looking to make your first baby blanket. 

Free Crochet Eyelet Striped Blanket Pattern

Yet another easy blanket to make, the free Crochet Eyelet Striped Blanket pattern is fun because it leaves a lot of room for playing with different colour combinations. The original uses Buttercup (yellow), Baby Sand (brown), and Baby Blue (blue), but other shades would surely look just as beautiful. Since this pattern calls for smaller stitches than the previous two, it will produce a sturdier, more durable blanket. 

Free Crochet Gingham Blanket Pattern

This tri-colour free Crochet Gingham Blanket pattern is an easy-level project great for practicing your crocheting skills. You will first have to make the square motif (somewhat similar to a granny square) twenty-five times, then join the squares together, and lastly, work on the edging.

Free Crochet Daisy Pillow Pattern
Sure, this yarn may be called Baby Blanket, but that doesn’t mean you should limit its use to blankets only. Take for instance this beautiful free Crochet Daisy Pillow pattern. Since this is an easy-level project, it is also a great opportunity to practice working with stuffing if you’ve never done it before. The pattern requires one skein of three colours each, but that is also enough material for three pillows, so you can even create a matching set. 

Free Crochet Chevron Baby Blanket Pattern

This free Crochet Chevron Baby Blanket pattern uses three skeins of Bernat Baby Blanket Stripes yarn in a single shade (the original uses the shade Seaglass). However, since this is a striped variety of the yarn, you will be making a multi-coloured blanket. If you’ve never done colour pooling or worked with striped yarns before, this easy-level project is a great place to start.

Free Bernat Crochet Ros Garland Pattern

Yet another non-blanket project on our list, this free Bernat Crochet Rose Garland pattern from Yarnspirations is an easy-level one. You will need three skeins of two different colours to make a 183cm-long garland that you can later use as home decor or a gift topper. 

Free A Snail’s Pace Crochet Blanket

This free A Snail’s Pace Crochet Blanket pattern is a two-in-one project where you will get to make a blanket and a snail-shaped sleeve for it. Since this project is easy-level, it is a great opportunity to learn how to crochet non-flat projects such as toys. You will need five balls of yarn (three for the blanket and snail base colour and one ball each for the stripes on the shell). You will also need to work with stuffing for the shell. 

Free Crochet Plaid Baby Picnic Blanket Pattern

Don’t let the simple look of this Crochet Plaid Baby Picnic Blanket fool you — this is not the easiest project to crochet. You will need two skeins of yarn for the base colour and one skein for the stripes. The original pattern uses the shade Vanilla for the base and Seafoam for the stripes, but you’re welcome to use any combination you prefer. 

Free Floral Fun Crochet Motif Ball Toy Pattern

Getting tired of all these blankets? Here’s a fun toy pattern that is surprisingly easy to crochet. This free Floral Fun Crochet Motif Ball Toy pattern makes for a great toy for babies or even an accent piece for your living room (if you have pets, we’re sure they’d enjoy it, too). The pattern uses six different colours, but with one skein of each, you will have enough material to crochet three toys.

Free Bernat Purrfect Crochet Play Rug Pattern
Yet another playmat with a twist, this cat-shaped Purrfect Crochet Play Rug is a fun, easy-level project. The original pattern uses yarn in the shades Baby Sand for the base, Vanilla for the eyes, lips, and whiskers, and Baby Pink for the nose and ears, but you’re free to make any kind of cat you’d like.

Free Bernat Crochet Cuddle Monsters Pattern
If you’re on the lookout for a cute and practical toy for a toddler, you’ve come to the right place. With this free Bernat Crochet Cuddle Monsters pattern, you can create two dinosaur-like toys with pockets for books or other toys. And the best part – it is an easy-level pattern, so even if you don’t have a lot of experience, you can try your hand at it.

Free Baby Cocoon Crochet Pattern

For this adorable free Baby Cocoon Crochet pattern, you will need two skeins of yarn in a single colour (the original uses the shade Baby Lilac). The easy-level project will make for a great gift for any new parents, especially as the cold season approaches.
