Sweet Stripes Baby Blanket, from TL Yarn Crafts

Sweet Stripes

If the Sweet Gingham Baby Blanket wasn’t enough, here’s another Tunisian crochet pattern to for your hooks! The Sweet Stripes Baby Blanket is a take on the traditional sampler, using three stitches that are equal parts beautiful and addictive.

Pin it now, Make it later!

Find a printer friendly, PDF version of the Sweet Stripes Baby Blanket in my Etsy and Ravelry shops and onTLYarnCrafts.com. PDF version includes full-color, 5 page instructions, a full schematic of the blanket, and links to helpful YouTube videos for Tunisian crochet techniques.

Some of my favorite pattern designs are inspired by the yarns they use. In this case, I had the pleasure of trying out the new Mainstreet Yarns from Love Crochet. Their Shiny & Soft collection features 30 colors of 100% acrylic yarns that are washer- and dryer-friendly. The yarn comes in large 7.1 oz. balls that are only $4.29 each, so large projects won’t break the bank. The yarn itself has a light sheen and is incredibly soft. My favorite thing about Mainstreet Yarns is how effortlessly the colors go together.

The Mainstreet Yarns Shiny & Soft collection comes in so many lovely shades, including neutrals, brights, and pastels. My care package from Love Crochet included all 30 colors, so I started my design by separating the yarns into their color families. I fell in love with the pastels, using Just White, Tweed Gray, Dusty Pink, Almond White, Light Purple, and Baby Pink for my sample. From there, I picked a few of my favorite Tunisian crochet stitches, did some swatching, and let this pattern take shape.

The Sweet Stripes Baby Blanket is the perfect project for the Tunisian crocheter who is looking to take their skills to the next level. The simple stitch combinations and easy striping make this a fun heirloom project. Adjust colors and section lengths to easily customize this blanket’s size and overall look. If I were making it again, I would love to see it in a solid gray or heathered rose color. I really hope you enjoy it and I can’t wait to see how you personalize my newest pattern.

    Beautiful blanket!! I have never tried Tusisian crochet before. However I can crochet. What are the exact colours in the blanket above? With this lovely combination of colours it wont matter if baby is a boy or girl. The colours are perfect. Please can you tell me how much wool I need per colour. Many thanks. 😘

      Hi Pauline! Thanks so much for your sweet comments! I used the colors Just White, Tweed Gray, Dusty Pink, Almond White, Light Purple, and Baby Pink for my sample. You’ll need 1 ball of each color to make this blanket. Have fun! – Toni L.

      Hi darling – there is not a Youtube video specifically for this blanket, but I do have videos for each of the stitches used. I use the Tunisian knit stitch, simple stitch, and honeycomb stitch in this blanket. Details for those are on my Youtube channel 🙂

    Hi Toni-
    Can I ask what the finished measurements are for this baby blanket? Goodness I love these color choices. If I wanted to shorten it I’m unsure which color to omit?? So pretty.
