Easy and full of texture crochet baby blanket pattern.
Meet the newest addition to my crochet baby blanket pattern collection, the Finnegan blanket. This crochet baby blanket was brought to life by my hands and the lovely people at Lovecrafts, who they kindly provided the yarn.

The yarn I used for this blanket, is a fantastic, luxurious merino wool from MillaMia. It is called Naturally Soft Aran and it’s exactly that. A soft merino wool that comes in skeins of 50 grams each and it’s a lovely yarn to work with.
Merino wool is one of the finest yarns you can find with really magical properties. And if you always thought that wool is scratchy, think again. Merino wool is really-really soft. I loved this yarn so much that I have at least two other baby blanket designs (one knit, one crochet) planned to make with the same yarn.
This design was born as an idea while I was watching the “Outlander” series, once again. There is something about that show and Scotland, that inspires me tremendously. I believe many more designs will come from the same inspiration.
As I said before, it’s a very simple design, with well-known stitches, that together create lots of texture and an interesting stitch pattern. It is one of those projects that you can easily make while you read a book, listening to a podcast, or watching your favorite show.
There is something to love about these mindless projects. There are times to challenge yourself and there are times to just sit down and relax with a nice cup of tea and crochet on.
Crochet baby blanket pattern details
The Finnegan crochet baby blanket pattern definitely falls in the second category. The pattern includes two sizes, baby and toddler. The baby size is 30” x 36” (76 x 92 cm) and the toddler size is 42” x 52” (106 x 132 cm).
If you decide to use the same yarn you will need 12 skeins for the baby size and 24 for the toddler size. I made mine with the color Cloud Grey, but there are many lovely shades you can choose from. You can find it on Lovecrafts, and they ship worldwide!
You will also need a US/I 5.50 mm crochet hook and a really comfy couch because you will not want to get up.
I hope you will like this pattern and embrace it as my other blankets. You can find it exclusively on Lovecrafts and while you are there you can browse their unique lines of yarns. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to their newsletter. Every day they have different yarns on sale.
Pin me for later… 😉
