Crochet Pattern

With Almond color yarn, Ch 64. You can chain any even number if you want to make your blanket wider. To make the blanket longer, you can add additional rows to the Almond stripes or add one additional stripe.

 

Row 1: Work this row tightly. 1 sc in 2nd ch from hook and ch across to end, turn. ——63 sc

 

Row 2: Ch 1(does not count as a st), 1 sc in the same st as ch 1, *(ch 1, sk 1 st, 1 sc in next st), repeat from * to end of the row, turn.——–32 sc+31 chs

 

Note: In the next row, you will be working a sc on top of the sc and a ch on top of the ch.

 

Row 3: Ch 1(does not count as a st), 1 sc in the same st as ch 1, *( ch 1, sk 1 ch, 1 sc in next st), repeat from * to end of the row, turn.——–32 sc+31 chs

 

Note: To join a new color at the end of the row, start working your last sc as usual and when you have 2 loops left on your hook, pull through the new color. You can watch a video on changing colors here:

 

 

Rows 4-6: Repeat Row 3 above and at the end of Row 6,  join white yarn, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——–32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 7&8: Repeat Row 3 with white yarn and join back the Almond color at end of Row 8, turn. Do not fasten off the white.——–32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 9&10: Repeat Row 3 with Almond color and join back the white at end of Row 10, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 11&12: Repeat Row 3 with white yarn and join back the Almond color at end of Row 12, turn. This time, fasten off the white.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 13-21 (total 9 rows): Repeat Row 3 with Almond color and join back the white at end of Row 21, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 22&23: Repeat Row 3 with white yarn and join back the Almond color at end of Row 23, turn. Fasten off the white.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 24-33(total 10 Rows): Repeat Row 3 with Almond color and join back the white at end of Row 33, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 34&35: Repeat Row 3 with white yarn and join back the Almond color at end of Row 35, turn. Fasten off the white.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 36-44(total 9 rows): Repeat Row 3 with Almond color and join back the white at end of Row 44, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Row 45&46: Repeat Row 3 with white yarn and join back the Almond color at end of Row 35, turn. Do not fasten off the white.——32 sc+31 chs

Row 50-54: Repeat Row 3 with Almond color and join back the white at end of Row 54, turn. Do not fasten off the Almond color.——32 sc+31 chs

 

Note: We started the blanket with a sc row but our last row will be a hdc row. This is because the foundation chain adds a little bit of width to the first stripe and a hdc will ensure that both the beginning and ending stripes are of the same width.

 

Row 55(Last Row): Ch 2(counts as 1 hdc), 1 hdc in each st and ch across to end. Fasten off.———-63 hdc.

 

Adding a Border to your Crochet Blanket

Sl st to the fasten off the corner with white yarn. distribute sc sts as evenly as possible across the row edges, when you reach the next corner, place 2 sc on each side of the corner to help you turn, work 1 sc in each free loop of the foundation ch, place 2 sc on each side of the corner and work along the remaining 2 sides in the same way . Once you have worked sc all around, sl st to the first sc and fasten off.

 

Finishing your Crochet Baby Blanket

1. Weave in any tails left into the wrong side of your blanket. The side on which you worked your border will be your right side.

 

2. Make 4 pom poms with a pom pom maker and tie it to the 4 corners, trim the excess tail to match the length of the rest of the strands. Use pom-poms only if you are making it for an adult or for your home. It may not be safe for babies.
