14 Beautiful Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn Crochet Patterns
The Bunny Blanket
If your heart doesn’t melt when you see this blanket, I’d be inclined to believe that you simply don’t have one. Just look at those fluffy bunny tails, and their tiny pastel t-shirts too. The Beatrix Potter-esque theme is enough to bring a tear to the eye.
The design is so simple, yet it seems rife with little embellishments that help it stand out in the bustling baby blanket crowd, and I don’t just mean the cute little bunny bums, I mean the squishy pom-poms at each corner too.
I’m not sure if the pictured design actually uses Bernat baby blanket yarn, but the pattern calls for any type of DK yarn, so using the baby-soft material shouldn’t be a problem. You’ll be left with a blanket so utterly huggable that you may end up keeping it for yourself.
The Words Blanket
Not only are the pastel colors of this blanket absolutely gorgeous, it’s an insanely clever design, so hats off to the maker, Peach Unicorn Designs.
I just love how perfectly every part is sectioned out to fit the words in without looking too bare or busy. It must have taken some serious trial and error to get right, so thanks for your efforts, Peach Unicorn!
I absolutely love the fact that it veers from the gender-typical blue/pink color scheme. I mean…they’re both in there, but you’ve also got a wonderful mix of yellow, green, purple, and cream as well. It’s beautiful, it’s well-made, it’s soft as heck…what more could little dreamers want in a blanket?
Just a beautiful blanket that works up so fast. This is such an easy stitch, too, you’ll have this little cozy throw ready for cuddles in no time.

The Chunky Baby Blanket
This chunky baby blanket made from Bernat baby blanket yarn is an absolute classic. Of course, you can make it whatever color you like, but I’m well and truly sold on the cream color in the displayed photos. Wrap your little bean sprout up in this to create a vision of utter purity!
It may not be the most adventurous design out there, but sometimes keeping it simple can yield truly beautiful results, which I think is clearly the case here. Besides, it’s suitable for beginner hook-heads to have a go at, and as it’s so small and chunky, you’ll have it done in as little as one or two sessions.
The Ripple Throw
This one’s for the parents and guardians out there. Who says that just because the yarn is called Baby Blanket that we can’t enjoy its velvety soft feel. Big kids need comfort too!
The pattern actually calls for Bernat Baby Velvet yarn, but the two fabrics are so similar, I can’t imagine switching them out will make any difference at all.
Simply put, it’s one of the most beautiful blankets I’ve ever seen, from the colors to the chevron patterning, to the fluffy tassels (I love a good tassel).
Everyone should have a blanket like this at the ready for when you’ve had a tough day at work, and you need to decompress and chill before you lose your marbles. It’s a bona fide marble saver; that’s what it is!
The Plush Snake
I tend to agree with Indiana Jones on snakes, that is until I met this little softy. Have you ever seen anything so darn cute in your life?
It’s a super easy pattern, so it’s great for beginners, and even crochet masters will have fun customizing this snake with their own color combinations. The maker suggests using any plush yarn, but as someone says in the comments, Bernat baby blanket yarn is a shoo-in for the job!
Go on, have a go at making the s, s, s, softest s, s, s, snake in town!
Beautiful stripes, beautiful chunky yarn and a fun set of colors?! I love this pattern. It makes for just such a bright and fun blanket.
The Zaylee Blanket
Here’s another gender-neutral work of art. It’s bold, it’s colorful, and it’s oh so soft. I particularly appreciate the frilly edges that add just a scooch more cuteness to the equation.
The 3-in-1 Cuddly Sheep Blanket
Okay, so, cards on the table…this design isn’t usually crafted with Bernat baby blanket yarn, but I’ve consulted the crochet guru in my life, and she claims that it absolutely could be made with the infamous soft-touch fabric — hurray!
It means I’m allowed to share it with you today, which I’m very happy about because it’s one of my favorite crochet patterns of all time.
Is it a blanket? Is it a playmat? Is it a toy sheep? Why, it’s all three! That’s right, my crafty chums. It can be a snugly security blanket for your wee one, a soft play surface to combat carpet burns, or even fold up into a toy for some farmyard fun.
The seller also has patterns for tons of other animals in the same 3-in-1 format, so if you’d prefer something else, say, a lion or a horse, no problem.
Crochet Water Balloons
Great for the soul and the planet, crochet water balloons have been a huge hit this summer, and I’m not surprised. They’re softer on the skin than standard balloons, they soak up tons of water for a nice big splash on impact, and as Bernat baby blanket yarn is 100% cotton, there’s zero plastic involved.
What’s more, they’re incredibly beginner-friendly, and as they don’t require all that much yarn, you can crochet them out of odds and ends you have leftover from larger projects.
They may not be all that beautiful to look at, but I think they’re a truly unique and beautiful idea, earning them a place on this prestigious, velvety-soft list.
Moss Stitch Baby Blanket
I don’t know if it’s the moss stitch (which I love) or the modern color scheme – or maybe the adorable pom poms, but whatever it is, this is such a fun pattern, my fingers are itching to get hooking!

The Squishmallow Cow
The Squishmallow Cow from New York-based maker, Vibes Crochet Co, has been another breakout success this year, and the world is a slightly better, softer place for it.
These squishy little cows feel amazing to hug, and as they’re so gentle on the skin, they’re perfectly suitable for young babies, but that doesn’t mean the toddlers in your life won’t demand a Squishmallow Cow for their very own too.
The Piggy Pillow
I know I’m running this farmyard theme into the ground, but you try taking a look into this beautiful little oinker’s eyes and telling it that it can’t be on the list…you can’t do it, can you?
The pattern calls for Bernat blanket yarn, but if you want to make it extra soft and squishable, feel free to use the baby variant. The larger the yarn, the chunkier the final piggy will be.
That was quite a journey, a plush pilgrimage if you will. I hope you found the Bernat baby blanket yarn crochet pattern of your dreams here today.
There’s a little something here for just about every skill level, so don’t worry if you’ve just started out; give one of them a try, at least just as an excuse to bring some of this uber-soft yarn into your life.
