The Charlotte Blanket is an even moss stitch baby blanket pattern with 4 other stitches to try and a cute picot border. Sized approximate to a stroller or receiving blanket, it’s a quick and straightforward pattern with video tutorials for the lesser known stitches, for any experienced beginner to try.
Using aran yarn and a 5.5mm hook keeps it cosy and snuggly, and with the quick stitches it’s a really fast project for a blanket! I used Stylecraft special DK for mine, I love how soft it is and in so many colour options, while being super affordable.

Stitch terms & abbreviations
Pattern is written in US terms.
Chain – ch
Slip Stitch – sl st
Stitch(es) – st(s)
Skip – sk
Single Crochet – sc
Double Crochet – dc
Half Double Crochet – hdc
In 4×4″: 13 rows of 14 sts using *sc, dc* repeat
Gauge is not so important for finishing the project, but may affect your yarn requirements.
- Starting chs do not count as a stitch
- Blanket is worked flat in rows, with a turn at the end of every row
- To adjust the size for a bigger or smaller blanket, use an even stitch count
- The pattern is written in sections assuming a colour change for each, though change colours wherever you like!
- The finished blanket will likely require blocking to even out the different stitch tensions. If using acrylic yarn, I suggest wet blocking.
