Zebra Newborn Blanket


Lorene Eppolite


I love animal print, especially zebra print and I really love the way it looks with hot pink.  I have a friend who is expecting her first girl any day now and she is also really into zebra print so I created this lovely blanket for her soon to be bundle of joy.  It is VERY easy to work up and unlike some zebra prints I have seen it is varied in design.  I hope you enjoy creating this cuddly Zebra NewbornBlanket for someone in your life.

This blanket can be made in any size, instructions included in pattern.

Materials List

5.0mm hook
Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
2 skeins Simply Soft by Caron in White
2 skeins Simply Soft by Caron in Black
1/4 skein Simply Soft by Caron in hot pink or any color of your choice

Finished Size

Approx 36″x36″ but can be made any size.  Instructions included in pattern.


Gauge not important, just use consistent stitches


The first and last stitch of EVERY row are hdc, (as are each stitch between changes in height of rows).  This is so that you do not have to do a turning chain on any row and evens it all out at the end so that all the rows are exactly the same height when finished.  The blanket will always work up square.
