I recently crocheted the very popular Fenya Blanket by Dada’s Place and here is how I customized it to be the perfect stroller-sized baby blanket.

The Inspiration

This blanket has been on my radar for years now and I finally made it! I think I was always turned away from it based on the large amount of yarn it requires but… I came up with a solution! I decided to make only 4 squares and turn it into a square stroller-sized baby blanket.

Supplies Used:

Pattern (I purchased on Ravelry)

5 mm crochet hook

Caron Blossom Cakes in Yacht Club; [ 61% Cotton and 39% acrylic; #4 weight; (2 skeins / approx. 960 yds) ]

Caron Latte Cakes in Cream; [ 58% acrylic and 42% Nylon; #5 weight; (0.25 skeins / approx. 200 yds) ]

My Notes:

The pattern recommends a 4.5mm crochet hook, I sized up to a 5mm. Using the 4.5mm made the squares slightly too stiff.

I completed the first two rows of each square in Latte Cakes. I also seamed the squares together with Latte Cakes to add some more fuzzy texture.

After completing the 4 squares, I continued on an followed the border instructions, alternating between the two yarns for the border rows.


Overall, this project turned out really great! I’m always a little nervous purchasing patterns from international designers, especially if there may be a language barrier, but this pattern is pure perfection! The instructions come in several different formats, written with photos, traditional written and a chart. The chart was my favorite to follow. The photo instructions show every step of the process and would be perfect for any eager beginner to follow along.

So I highly recommend making your own Fenya blanket and get creative with customizing to make it your own!
