Since it is now officially springtime, what better way to start it off than with a vibrant, spring colored Watermelon baby blanket?!

Because this blanket is made in the bright colors of green and pinkish reds, I thought what could be a better name than the Watermelon Baby Blanket!

I always have a good time trying to take pictures outside of my finished projects and I always wind up with a helper

The Yarn

The yarn that I used specifically for this blanket is Hobby Lobby’s “Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek” This yarn work up beautifully and really shows the moss stitch off. It is a low peel fiber yarn and isn’t fuzzy at all!

This blanket is made using the Moss Stitch in a Square technique. This is a great stitch that works up easily and doesn’t require a lot of counting, so it’s perfect for working up while watching TV or something.

If you need any help with doing the moss stitch in a square, I have a video tutorial HERE


For the border, I done the Puff Edge Stitch.

With Green,

Start by pulling up a loop anywhere around the edge of your blanket and work an HDC (half double crochet) in that stitch. *Skip a stitch, Hdc, then, working around the post of the HDC, HDC3TOG.*

To HDC3TOG: yarn over, pull up a loop,(3 loops on hook) YO again, pull up a loop (5 loops on hook) YO again, pull up a loop (7 loops on hook) YO and pull through all 7 loops on your hook

Continue repeating * to * around your work. When you reach a corner, simply work 2 puff edge stitches in the corner placing a chain stitch between the 2 puff edge stitches.
