Perfect for baby, toddler, child, and adult! This pattern is easy, beginner friendly, provides loads of texture and warmth, plus can be made in any size desired!
I made this blanket roughly 4 years ago – talk about throw back for me! My son was 3 years old and in preschool where they took afternoon naps (those lucky ducks!) so I made him this blanket to snuggle under during those much needed naps.
He’s still able to snuggle under this blanket with his books since I made it extra long for him! I don’t know about you, but I love making sure every inch is covered. 🙂
Waffle Crochet Stitch
This stitch is textured, warm, easy to make, fairly quick, and perfect for any size! If you know how to double crochet, you will know how to make this blanket.
The thickness of the stitch makes it the perfect blanket to snuggle under during the fall and winter seasons. That’s a good quality for a blanket if you ask me.

For this blanket, I chose a dusty blue, gray, teal, and mustard yellow. I think these colors flow well together but also isn’t an expected combination of colors.
In this post, I put together many different color palettes that you can browse for inspiration or ideas of color combinations. One of my favorite things to do is pick the colors before starting a project! I like to think outside the box and put together colors that you wouldn’t always think of.
