Baby blankets are perfect for cuddling, swaddling, napping, and security. They also make the perfect luxurious handmade gift. This video tutorial is of an heirloom vintage inspired baby blanket using the ripple puff stitch. I found this free written pattern online. I followed the pattern pretty close but I added a border around the entire piece. You can find the free pattern here.
This generously sized super soft cuddly blanket is perfect for any nursery layette and is sure to be a baby or toddler’s favorite. I used one skein of each color of Bernat Baby Coordinates yarnIced Mint, White, Baby Pink, and Soft Blue. I’m in awe of how pretty this stitch turned out using these colors!
Follow along with this video to learn how to make this lovely baby blanket.
A handmade heirloom blanket is a gift that a child will cherish forever. It can be made in a medley of colors or one solid tone. This is adaptable to any type of yarn and you can go up in hook size as well.
Although the video tutorial shows how to make a baby blanket, you can apply the same technique and continue to expand the size by increasing the amount of chains. This pattern is in multiples of 18 (+2), and I explain in the video how to make it bigger.
This will add and elegant touch to any nursery.

Many times I stop to admire vintage baby clothing that I see in thrift shops and antique stores. I marvel over the craftsmanship of some of the old-fashioned designs, and I try to find ways to revive those patterns to keep the antiquity, yet add a little bit of modern feel. Today’s project is one such item. This baby bonnet is reminiscent of days gone by. This would make the perfect gift as part of a newborn layette. With a few modifications, you can make this for either gender.
Feel free to add some embellishments such as a small flower on the design to make it more feminine, or a bow would be darling! You can interchange your ribbon with lace or a different color ribbon. You could add a little button for a more masculine look. Get creative with yours! This timeless look and classic design will sure to please anyone and will look precious on any baby, boy or girl.
