Crochet Cotton Baby Blanket

 

Pick any three colors to make this cotton crochet blanket or just a single color. The white panels looked gorgeous in this stitch. Nothing can beat the stitch definition of 100% cotton yarns, right?

 

This was actually a very mindless project for me. I didn’t set out with a clear plan in mind. I just made it up as I went, so I am really curious to see what you think of it.

Crochet Pattern

Notes

1. For the sake of convenience, we will call the colors white, pink, and mint.

 

2. If you are making this blanket in a single color, add up the yardage of all the three colors to find out how much yarn to purchase for your project.

 

3. To join a new color at the end of a dc row, start working your last dc as usual, and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, pull through the new color to complete your dc.

 

4. To join a new color at the end of a hdc row, start working your last hdc as usual, and when you have 3 loops left on your hook, pull through the new color to complete your hdc.

Border for Crochet Cotton Baby Blanket Pattern

Notes

1. Do not turn your work. The border is worked on the same side you worked your last row.

 

2. While working the first round of the border, take care to work around any tails left along the sides if they are white or they match the color of the stripe. Any other colors will show through your work and is best woven in later.

 

Round 1: Ch 1 at the corner(not counted as a st), work 2 sc in the corner, evenly distribute sc sts along the side of the blanket. I worked 2 sc across a dc row, 1 sc in the junction between a dc and hdc row, and 1 sc across a hdc row.

 

Continue to work sc sts along the side until you reach the next corner, 3 sc in the corner, proceed to work sc sts along the foundation ch side, work 1 sc in each of the skipped chs, and 1 sc at the base of each V-st until you hit the next corner.

 

3 sc in the corner, work sc sts along the side of the blanket until you reach the top corner, 3 sc in the corner, 1 sc in each st across the last row of your blanket, 1 sc in the corner, sl st to the first sc. Do not turn. 

 

Note: For the next round, switch to the smaller 4.25mm hook.

 

Round 2: *(Ch 5, sl st to the 3rd ch from hook to make a picot, ch 2, sk 2 sts, sl st to next st), repeat from * until you reach near the next corner, if you have one extra st to the corner, you can ch 3 after the picot, sk 3 sts, and then sl st to the corner.

Now continue to work along the foundation chain side. Here you will skip 3 sts instead of 2 as the sts are tightly packed. *(Ch 5, sl st to the 3rd ch from hook to make a picot, ch 2, sk 3 sts, sl st to next st), repeat from * until you reach the next corner.

 

Now again you will go back to skipping 2 sts. *(Ch 5, sl st to the 3rd ch from hook to make a picot, ch 2, sk 2 sts, sl st to next st), repeat from * until you reach the next corner.

 

Now work along the last row of your blanket skipping 3 sts like you did across the foundation chain side. *(Ch 5, sl st to the 3rd ch from hook to make a picot, ch 2, sk 3 sts, sl st to next st), repeat from * until you end with a sl st in the corner you started this round. Fasten off.
