I’m too in love with this blanket to not share the pattern right away! Even though the blanket isn’t finished, and I don’t know what the border will be, I must share, that’s how excited I am about this pattern! It is a variation of a coral and grey I have done before, but these colors! And the yarn! It’s all about the yarn for this one in my opinion.
(see bottom of page for abbreviation guide)
Finished size 36 x 36. Yarn: Red Heart With Love, one skein each of mint, papaya and white.
Do a foundation chain of multiples of 8 plus five.
ROW 1: (with white) 1 SC into 2nd CH from hook and every chain across to the end.
ROW 2: CH 1, turn, SC in first SC and in every SC across to the end.
ROW 3: (Change to mint) 1 SC into 2nd CH from hook, 1 SC in next 3 CHs, *1 DC into each of next 4 CHs, 1 SC into each of next 4 SC; REP * to end, turn.
ROW 4: CH 1, 1 SC into each of next 4 SC, *1 DC into each of next 4 DC, 1 SC into each of next 4 SC, REP * to end, turn.
ROW 5: (Change to white) repeat row 1.
ROW 6: Repeat row 2.
ROW 7: (Change to coral) CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), SK first SC, 1 DC into each of next 3 SC, *1 SC into each of next 4 SC, 1 DC into each of next 4 SC, rep from * to end, turn.
ROW 8: CH 3, SK first ST, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC, *1 SC into each of next 4 SC, 1 DC into each of next 4 DC; REP from * to end, working last DC into 3rd of CH-3, turn.
ROW 9 to the end of the blanket however big you’d like to make it, repeat rows 1 to 8.
So to sum up, you are putting two rows of SC with the white, in between each row of the mint and coral.
The yarn I used, which I am recommending if you want this look, is Red Heart WITH LOVE,
I am not suggesting Red Heart Super Saver. It’s too scratchy. Don’t do it, even though it’s cheap and you’ll find it on sale everywhere.
I use a K hook, feel free to go up a size or down, it all depends on how tight or loose you crochet.
I also have a Facebook page, a Pinterest page, a Twitter account, a YouTube channel all named Daisy Farm Crafts. So come and find me! I do love Instagram the best and I’d love if you’d tag me and share a picture of what you are making!
