Circle of Friends Baby Boy Blanket

Hello Lovelies,

I am sorry it took my so long to get these photos up. This pattern was a joy to make, and I plan to make many more bably blankets with this pattern. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to bring this one in to the office to share with my Thursday Crochet Lunch Group, so the photos will have to suffice. I took the color idea from this one and made it a boy version. As soon as I hear of a baby girl on the way, I will do it with the girl colors!

Just the yellows left to square

I left off the final row of the pattern (row of sc around)

The perfect size - at least I thought so!

Folded up and ready to go!
I used Vanna's Choice yarn for this blanket. The green and yellow are from the baby Vanna's Choice. The colors were: Silver Blue (light blue), Dust Blue (darker blue), Duckie (yellow), and Sweet Pea (green). The Vanna's choice yarn baby line isn't any softer than her regular line so they can be mixed together. The white from the baby and white from the regular don't appear to be different either. I have used some of each on projects before and can't tell a difference. Well, I did start working on something new last night and can't wait to share the photos soon!!
I hope you have a fabulous afternoon.
xoxo Susan


  1. Your blanket is so gorgeous. Very nice choice of colors :-) Congratulations on your finish!

  2. Hi Susan, your baby boy blanket is beautiful! I love the colours - fresh and contemporary. We can't get get Vanna's Choice round here and it's a shame as the colours do seem lovely. Looking forward to seeing your new project!

  3. I really like this pattern, and the colors look great together. Lucky baby!

  4. Thanks ladies! Jane - Vanna's choice is nice. I use it the most. Gay - this pattern is a lot of reading at first, but then once I got the hang of it, it was fast.

  5. I just wanted to share this:



  6. I love this blanket. It is exactly what i'd like to make my son for his first birthday.
    If you don't mind me asking where did you get the pattern?

  7. M Harrison, Thanks! If you click on "Links to Patterns Used" near the top of my blog (next to the Home tab) you will find the link to the pattern for Circle of Friends. I highly recommend this pattern, especially for baby blankets. It was a joy to make!
