The Nori Blanket

October 3, 2020

 


I'll come right out and say it: this crochet pattern might be my all-time favorite. First, this pattern is based on a flannel blanket I loved as a child, with its soft pink fabric and delicate white edging (yay!). Second, my daughter, Nori, was just two months old at the time I began brainstorming this design. Each time I held her, I thought about how quickly this phase of her babyhood would pass and how much I wanted her to have something special to hold onto when one day she might be rocking her own child to sleep (bigger yay!). Lastly, all proceeds from this pattern are being donated to The Conscious Kid, an education, research and policy organization dedicated to reducing bias and promoting positive identity development in youth (biggest yay!). They partner with organizations, children's museums, schools, and families across the country to promote access to children's books centering underrepresented and oppressed groups.


About the Pattern

This baby-friendly blanket is made using super soft yet durable yarn (seriously the Feels Like Butta yarn from Lion Brand Yarns used in this pattern is machine washable and dryable!), but you’re encouraged to use whatever yarn you love the most. The Nori Blanket is also a perfect project for first time crocheters, using basic stitches and minimal to no shaping. And because I love creating flexible blanket designs, this pattern includes instructions for making it any size! The finished baby blanket featured in this pattern’s photos measures 34” x 32”.


I promise it didn't take me three months to stitch this blanket! But, it was the perfect backdrop for Nori's five-month photoshoot! (Psst, check out the adorable strawberry headband from Naneville, a fellow Etsy seller!)
