Personalized Blanket With Infinite Options

The C2C Name Blanket Crochet Pattern is packed with step-by-step photos, tips and written instructions to make a 31½ x 43½-inch baby blanket with a center panel to stitch a baby's first name! However, in addition to being the perfect baby gift when stitched in colors that coordinate with the baby's room, we think this clever pattern could be modified in size to create blankets for people of all ages!

Personalized Blanket With Infinite Options

Need suggestions regarding how one would modify this pattern to create a larger size for a teen or adult? Try making the rectangles with worsted- or chunky-weight yarn and using a larger crochet hook, or crochet more rectangles and add them in rows or columns around the afghan's perimeter until you get the desired length and width.

This pattern would make a one-of-a-kind gift for your dad, son or grandson when stitched using his favorite sports team's name and colors. For a keepsake gift-giving idea, this blanket would make a wonderful graduation gift when stitched using high school or college team colors and the name of the graduate. Another gift option is to stitch an inspirational word such as “Faith,” “Hope” or “Courage” in the center panel and give it to a first responder or someone who is going through a difficult time.
