Welcome to Rich Textures Crochet! Today we will learn how to crochet this gorgeous gender neutral baby blanket: The Peek-A-Boo Baby Blanket.

When you don’t know the gender of the baby being born, it’s always a challenge to find gender neutral baby blanket.


This blanket features a beautiful moss stitch design with a simple edging of single crochet and puff stitches.

For this project I used the Caron Cotton Cakes which is a worsted/medium weight yarn and a 6 mm crochet hook.  I love the cotton/acrylic blend of the Caron Cotton Cakes, it is super soft and light making it a great candidate for a baby blanket.


The free written pattern will be found below along with a video tutorial.  If you would like to add this pattern to your library or purchase an ad free PDF you may do so from either my Etsy or Ravelry Shops:

  1. After Row 2, you say “Repeat row 3 until …” Since you don’t list a Row 3, I’m pretty sure you mean “Repeat row 2 until…”

    1. RichTexturesCrochet says:

      You are correct 🙂 thank you!

  2. Athirubarani Subramaniam says:

    As the sc on the 2nd row is on the 3rd , 5th, 7th chain and so on. The last sc will not fall in the 118th chain. The last sc is on the 117th ch. Am I correct? So what do we do?

  3. Mildred Bessellieu says:

    If I wanted to make it larger how many chains would I need.

    1. RichTexturesCrochet says:

      I would add multiples of 4

  4. Deb DeGreeff says:

    Hi Sarah! Your pattern above states to chain 119 but the you tube tutorial states to chain 118. Please clarify which is correct. Thanks so much! Am wanting to start this for my 1st grandbaby that’s due on August.
