Just like my other 3 in 1 baby blankets, the 3in1 Woodland Bear Baby Blanket acts as a toy, a blanket and a decoration for your loved one's room. 

Unfold it and keep your child warm and snuggly while he is entertained playing with the elephant.


Once done, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a decorative item that you can rest on the arm chair or the side of the cot.



Made with double knit (light worsted) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft, but light in weight, perfect for babies of all sizes and ages.

The blanket is crocheted in gender neutral warm shades of brown and will fit any nursery.

Make it your own and choose any color that suits your color scheme and decor, from pinks for baby girls to blues for baby boys.



Choose natural shades of white and grey for a neutral colored nursery or make it fun and playful with bright colors such as green, yellow, blue or purple. Your choice!

This pattern will create a baby blanket size 100cm by 80cm (39.5in by 31.5in), but you can make yours as small or as large as you like by changing the number of the starting chains and the number of rows.

Pin it for later

Supplies Used

- 2 x 100g balls of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in dark brown (chocolate)

  • - 2 x 100g balls of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in cream (oat)

  • Unfortunately Marriner Yarns is only found in the UK, so for my international customers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn , which comes is a multitude of colours and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.

  • - crochet hook size 4mm

  • - blunt sewing needle to fit the yarn used to stitch the parts together

  • Special Stitches

    First Double Crochet In The Row (dc1) – sc in the first stitch, ch2. 

    Compared to the usual method of crocheting a double crochet in the first row (ch3), this method of constructing it will eliminate the gap that usually occurs between the first two stitches.

    It will also help bringing the unused yarn over to the next row. 

    Single Crochet Back Loop Only (sc blo) – A stitch has a front and back loop that meet at one end and look like an horizontal V (looks like this >). 

    To single crochet in the back loop only, insert the hook in the middle of the V from top and under the back loop (the loop that is away from you), yo and draw up a loop. 

    Yarn over and pull through the two loops.



    Gauge

    Keep the tension relaxed, if your work is too tight, the ends will curl.

    Gauge is important when crocheting the gingham pattern.

    Make a small swatch before starting the blanket to figure it out how many rows you need to create a square. 

    My gauge for this tutorial is 10 stitches and 4 rows per square. 

    The entire blanket has 9 squares by 11 squares. 

    Use one size up hook to make the foundation chain and first row.

    Using the yarn weight and hook size suggested in this pattern will create a blanket size 100cm by 80cm (39.5in by 31.5in).
