Crochet Boho Berry Stitch Blanket

Hello! Hannah here.  I first got the inspiration for this Boho Berry Stitch blanket when I saw a picture of a blanket on the Magnolia Instagram feed a few weeks ago.  The blanket was so pretty and simple and I loved that it still looked very soft even with all the different colors and the little alternating poms poms.

I had a bunch of leftover yarn from my last few projects and I tried to make it look like the blanket with a bunch of different colors, but some of the colors were just too bright or too dark and it wasn’t looking the same.  For some reason the mint, plum and peach colors really stood out to me, so I decided to just stick with them and space the stripes out a little more.

And I’m so happy I just kept it simple because it actually turned out better than I thought it would! I decided to call it a boho blanket because it looks like it could be friends with the Modern Boho Granny Blanket my mom made a few months ago – she also used these gorgeous plum wine and light country peach colors from Caron Simply Soft.

Instead of doing bobbles, I decided to use the berry stitch, which is a more subtle cluster stitch and doesn’t make the bobbles pop out quite so much.  In between the berries, I just worked single crochet, because I wanted the lines to be really straight to stand apart from the berries, so this might be a good beginner project if you are just learning to crochet!

Berry Stitch

Before you get started, you may want to do a quick practice swatch to learn the berry stitch.  Here’s how to work a berry stitch:

YO, (yarn over), insert hook, YO, pull through, YO pull through ONE loop on the hook, YO, insert hook, YO, pull through, YO, pull through all five loops left on the hook. Berry complete.

In case you are more of a visual learner, here is a video demonstration to show you how to work the berry stitch:

Pattern

Chain 96 in white.  (If you’d like to make the blanket bigger, chain any multiple of 6.)

SC (single crochet) in each chain across.  Chain 1 and turn.  SC in each SC across.  Chain 1 and turn. Repeat for three more rows.  (So work 5 rows of SC).

First Set of Stripes

On the last white row, pull through with plum before you complete the last SC (you should have two loops on your hook when you pull the plum through).  Chain one and turn.

Work 5 SC, then a berry stitch.  Continue working SC, placing a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 5 SC.

On the last stitch of the plum row, pull through with white, then chain one and turn.  SC 5 rows of white, chaining one and turning at the end of each row.  On the last stitch of the fifth row, pull through with light country peach and chain one and turn.

Work 2 SC, then a berry stitch so that the berries are alternating with the plum row.  Then place a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So after the first berry, work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 2 SC.

On the last stitch of the peach row, pull through with white, chain one and turn. SC 5 rows of white, chaining one and turning at the end of each row. On the last stitch of the fifth row, pull through with soft green and chain one and turn.

Work 5 SC, then a berry stitch.  Continue working SC, placing a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 5 SC.  On the last SC of the green row, pull through with white. Chain one and turn.

SC 11 rows of white, chaining one and turning at the end of each row.

Second Set of stripes

On the last stitch of white, pull through with plum.  Chain one and turn.

Work 2 SC, then a berry stitch.  Continue working SC, placing a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 2 SC.

On the last stitch of the plum row, pull through with white.  Chain one and turn. SC 5 rows of white, chaining one and turning at the end of each row. On the last stitch of the fifth row, pull through with light country peach.  Chain one and turn.

Work 5 SC, then a berry stitch.  Continue working SC, placing a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 5 SC.

On the last stitch of the peach row, pull through with white.  Chain one and turn.  SC 5 rows of white, chaining one and turning at the end of each row.  On the last stitch of the fifth row, pull through with soft green. Chain one and turn.

Work 2 SC, then a berry stitch.  Continue working SC, placing a berry stitch every sixth stitch.  So work 5 SC, Berry, 5 SC, Berry, etc.  You should end with 2 SC.

On the last stitch of the green row, pull through with white.  Chain one and turn.  Work 11 rows of white with SC, then repeat starting with the first set of stripes!

Here’s a close-up so you can see how the two sets of stripes alternate with the berries.

I ended up with six sets of stripes when I felt the blanket was the length I wanted.

 

Tassels

After I weaved in all my ends with a tapestry needle, I added tassels to each end of the blanket.  For the tassels, I used the same simple method that I used in my Diamond Berry Stitch Blanket

Supplies:  A small notebook (the one I used is about 6 in. x 4in.), Scissors, Yarn

Wrap a piece of yarn around the notebook horizontally.  Then cut the yarn in half.

Take two to three pieces of yarn (depending on how thick you want your tassels) and fold them in half.  Insert the folded end into the chain space above the last row of single crochet.

And pull tight to make a knot.

And that’s it! For the Boho Berry Stitch Blanket, I put my tassels in every other chain space above the first and last rows of SC, but you can space yours out however you desire.  You can also make the tassels longer by using a bigger notebook, or trim them down if you want them to be shorter.

Thank you so much for coming to Daisy Farm Crafts! I hope you enjoy making this blanket and I hope you’ll share your work with us on Instagram or Facebook when you are finished!  We’d love to see your creativity!
