After making The Finley blanket, I wanted to design a baby blanket with the same stitch.

And while I like Lion Brand’s Pound of Love yarn, I wanted to go with a yarn that had just a bit more softness.

One of my all-time favorite yarns is Lion Brand’s Heartland.

I love the softness, colors, and the fact that they’re named after U.S. National Parks is a bonus in my book.

Here are a few other I Can Crochet That patterns designed with Heartland:

The Drew Throw

The Raised Stitches Shawl

Get the details here.

The Getaway Infinity Scarf

Get the details here.

And last but not least…

One of the most popular patterns here…

The Simple Linen Stitch Blanket

As you can see, I really really like this yarn. 🙂

The Hazel Textured Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

I had someone ask me about the names I chose for my designs.

She noticed something…

I was going in alphabetical order. And it’s true! Here’s a list of the project names so far:

  • The Ava Throw
  • The Bryn Blanket
  • The Cora Blanket
  • The Drew Throw
  • The Ethan Throw
  • The Finley Blanket
  • The Griffin Blanket
  • And…The Hazel

Most of these names I find searching online, but The Ava Throw and The Hazel are named after family members.

Ava, for my mother-in-law, who left us entirely too soon, and Hazel, for my niece, who just turned one a few days ago!

Guess what she got for her birthday? 😉

The Hazel blanket of course! And some board books.

The Crochet Stitches

The Bean Stitch

As I mentioned, I used one of the same stitches as The Finley Throw – the Bean Stitch.

Here’s a video tutorial I made showing you how to do the Bean stitch. I hope it helps!

For those of you who like written instructions, here you go:

Bean Stitch:

  • Insert hook into stitch and pull up a loop (2 loops on hook)
  • Yarn over, insert hook into same stitch and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook)
  • Yarn over, insert hook into same stitch and pull up a loop (6 loops on hook)
  • Yarn over and pull through all 6 loops on hook
  • Chain 1 to secure stitch
  • Skip the next stitch and work steps 1 – 5 into the following stitch. Work bean stitch in every other stitch to end of row.

The Border

As for the border, I used the instructions from this video but tweaked it just slightly. Instead of doing 9 double crochet in the corner, I did 7.

Here are the colors of Lion Brand’s Heartland yarn I used for this blanket:

You can purchase Heartland yarn at LionBrand.com or Amazon.com.

The Hazel Blanket Pattern

You can purchase a printable PDF of this pattern at our shop here or Etsy here.

Description:

The Hazel crochet baby blanket is worked entirely in the bean stitch, giving it one incredible texture. Because of the nature of the stitch and the weight of the yarn, this blanket is fairly heavy making it the perfect item for those colder days and nights. This baby blanket will make a beautiful addition to a baby’s room.

Notes:

  • Finished size measures 47” wide x 47″ long
  • To change the length, simple add more striped rows
  • To change the width, chain an odd number
  • ch 1 does count as stitch
  • At the end of each row, it says to ch 1. You are actually chaining 2, but because you already chained 1 to secure the last bean stitch, the pattern states to ch 1
