It has two slits in the blanket that allow you to slip the bottom lock of the car seat through the blanket and then strap the child underneath it.
The blanket is designed to fit right over the car seat without extra length hanging off the edges and the bobbled stitches give your little one something to touch and feel. So let's get started!! : ) This is the perfect baby shower gift and because it is small it works up pretty fast.
Bobble Car Seat Blanket Pattern
MaterialsSize N crochet hook
Medium worsted weight yarn in two complimentary colors, or two skeins of the same color(they will be worked together). (Approx 488 yrds. 2 skeins of 244 each.)
Super bulky baby yarn (Approx 350 yrds.)
7/8" Ribbon (2 ¾ yrds)
5 sc x 4 rows = 2" square
Finished size: 18 in H x 19 1/2 in W
(I have made some pattern adjustments so there isn't as much bulk under the child's chin when using the blanket. Ignore the measurements in the the comments. These are now correct.)
I made a blanket using each of these yarns and the gauge comes out pretty close to the same. There is one adjustment, and I will let you know what it is when we get there.
All of the step by step photos are of the quilt made with the medium worsted weight yarn. It is MUCH easier to see your stitches. But the super bulky baby yarn is so soft and also turns out really cute as you can see –
Bobble - (YO, insert hook in next stitch, draw up a loop, YO draw through 2 loops on hook) repeat twice in same st. YO and draw through all 4 loops on hook.
Ch 32 (If you are using medium worsted weight, work 2 strands together at the same time.)
Row 1: Skip first ch, sc in each ch across, ch 1, turn. (31 sc)
Row 2: Sc in first st, bobble st, *sc in next 3 st, bobble st,* repeat from * to * across to last st, sc in last st, ch 1, turn.
Row 3: Sc across, ch 1, turn.
Row 4: Sc in first 3 st, *bobble st, sc in next 3 st,* repeat from * to * across, ch 1, turn.
Row 5: Sc across, ch 1, turn.
Row 6-16: Repeat rows 2-5 twice and then rows 2-4 once more.
Row 17: Sc in first 14 st, ch 3 (if you crochet tightly you may need to ch 5 so the buckle will fit), skip 3 sc, sc in remaining 14 st, ch 1 turn.
Row 18: Sc in first sc, *bobble st, 3 sc,* repeat from * to * twice, bobble st, 3 sc in ch 3 space, repeat from * to * three times, bobble st, sc in last st, ch 1, turn.
Row 19: Sc across, ch 1, turn.
Row 20: *Sc in 3 st, bobble st,* repeat from * to * twice, sc in 7 st, bobble st, repeat from * to * twice, sc in last 3 st, ch 1 turn

Row 26-33: Repeat rows 2-5 twice.
Row 34: Repeat row 2.
Row 35: Repeat row 3. Do not ch 1 on last time working row 3.
(Beginning in this next row, you will be working around the blanket.)
(This round the directions vary depending on the yarn that you have chosen to work with. The initial instructions will be written for the super bulky baby yarn and then the adjustments for the medium worsted weight yarn will follow.)
Super bulky baby yarn
Ch 3, (dc, ch1, dc, ch1) in same st. Side A: Working along left side of the quilt, dc, ch 1, working 14 dc evenly spaced in every other row ending, dc in corner st. (Dc, ch 1, dc, ch1) in same corner st. Side B: Working across the bottom of the quilt, dc, ch 1, working 14 dc evenly spaced, dc in corner st. Repeat Side A and Side B once again ending with a slip st in the second ch of beginning ch 3. (68 dc around blanket)
Changes for medium worsted weight yarn:
Ch 4, work the rest of the eyelet round just the same except use tc instead of dc. I found that the dc stitches were just barely not tall enough to accommodate the 7/8" ribbon. (The close up pictures for the next couple steps show dc because I didn't realize this till later. Just a clarification so the pictures aren't confusing.) When joining, slip st in the third ch of beginning ch 4. (68 tc around blanket)
Edging: Ch 2, sc in next ch 1 space, ch 2, [*sc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1*, repeat from * to * across to corner, ch 2 over corner dc], repeat from [ to ] around. Join in first ch of beginning ch 2. Finish off. Weave in ends.
Cut off 2 ¾ yrds of ribbon and weave it through the eyelet row securing with a bow, and you're DONE!!!
