The Bias Tunisian Baby Blanket – Striped Version

Every now and then, a pattern comes along that just works for every occasion. The Bias Tunisian Baby Blanket is that pattern. The design is so simple that it works as a canvas for your creativity. I put a new spin on it for my future nephew, and I kind of want to keep the finished blanket for myself!

My summer of baby showers continues and this one is extra special. My older brother and his wife are welcoming a brand new baby boy! There’s truly nothing better than being an aunt. I have a 4-year-old niece that I love spending time with and I can’t wait to hold my teeny nephew in a few months.

But, as excited as I am, free time is running short. For my nephew’s blankie, I wanted to jazz up a simple pattern and let the lovely colors of yarn do all the work for me. My Bias Tunisian Baby Blanket pattern was the perfect canvas and worked brilliantly with Caron x Pantone Bamboo yarn from Yarnspirations.

Caron x Pantone Bamboo is a luscious blend of bamboo, nylon, and acrylic. These fibers together have a silky, lightweight feel but are still machine washable. I’m so excited that the final blanket will keep its rich colors for years to come.

I rounded out this yarny gift with a Two-Legged Bunny, designed by Lanukas. I used the leftover yarn from the blanket to make the bunny and put little rattle inserts in the legs. Click here for the free Two-Legged Bunny pattern.

This version of the Bias Tunisian Baby Blanket is made the same as the original with the following edits:

  • The pattern uses only one strand of worsted weight yarn throughout but still with an 8mm Tunisian crochet hook with a 32″ cord.
  • This version is made with Caron x Pantone Bamboo from Yarnspirations in the following amounts: 2 skeins of Indigo, 2 skeins of Ghost Gray, 2 skeins of Sandy toes, and the white and light blue portions of 2 skeins of Sunset Sky.
  • The finished pattern has 169 total rows and measures about 42″ square.

To replicate my version of the Bias Tunisian Baby Blanket, use the following color sequence:

On the increase (85 total rows):

  • 32 rows with Sandy Toes
  • 9 rows alternating White and Indigo
  • 24 rows with Ghost Gray
  • 20 rows with Indigo

On the decrease (84 total rows):

  • 2 rows with Indigo
  • 30 rows with Sandy Toes
  • Alternate 2 rows Indigo and 1 row Light Blue 9 times (27 rows)

  • 9 rows with Ghost Gray

I hope you enjoy this pattern! Don’t forget to pin it and share it with friends 🙂

    Hi There. I love this blanket and want to give it a try for a baby gift. Can you suggest some other yarns in similar colors? I could not find the one you mentioned anywhere! Thanks!

      Hi Ashley – I’m so bummed that this yarn is mostly being discontinued. I’m not 100% sure who might have colors similar to this one, but Lion Brand Wool Ease DK Cake and Lion Brand Mandala Yarn are great places to start.

    I’d love to make this gorgeous blanket for a friend of mine and can’t find the yarn. Can you tell me a good substitute? I was thinking Loops and Thread Joy DK? and about how many yards I’d need of each color? I think I counted 5 different colors, yes? Thanks so much! Can’t wait to get started

      Hi! You can use any DK weight yarn held double or any worsted weight yarn held single for this blanket. Loops and Threads Joy DK would be a wonderful choice. I haven’t made this blanket with that yarn before, so I can’t really say exactly how much yarn it would take. I’d get at least what is recommended in the pattern, then maybe a ball or two more, just in case.

    Hi Toni! Do you have any idea how many yards/gms the skeins of Caron x Pantone Bamboo was? I am trying to figure out how much I will need using another yarn and resize it bigger slightly. Thank you!

      Hi Vicky – happy to help. Each small hank on the Caron x Pantone skeins is about 36 yards/ 20 grams. Hope that helps 🙂
