Crochet Christmas Tree Farm Blanket

Hey there, Hannah here, after I made my Christmas tree puff hot pads a few weeks ago I realized that I had a lot of Paton’s Alpaca Blend in this pretty green color so I decided to make a tree puffs throw! The blanket is worked the same way as the hot pads, but I used a slightly different stitch for the main part of the blanket and made the puffs a little bit thicker. 

In the pattern below, I’ve written out the counts for each row of the first two sets of triangles, but I think you’ll find after you get started that you really only need to count on the bottom rows of the triangles – after you build the base you can visually build the triangles by decreasing one puff on the next puff row. 

Materials

Yarn: 12 skeins of Paton’s Alpaca Blend in Lagoon (100g/3.5oz, 142 m/155 yds)
Tools: Size J/6mm hook, Tapestry Needle, Scissors
Size: Finished blanket 42 in x 50 in

Stitches

Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC): Yarn over (YO), insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop and pull directly through first loop on hook. YO and pull through remaining two loops. 

Puff Stitch: YO, insert your hook, YO and pull up a loop, *YO, insert your hook into the same space, YO and pull up a loop. Repeat from * two more times, then YO and pull through all loops on hook. 

Front and Back Post Double Crochet (FPDC & BPDC): A front post double crochet means you insert your hook from front to back around the post of the next DC and work a DC. A back post double crochet means you insert your hook from back to front around the post of the next DC and work a DC. (DC=Double Crochet, YO insert your hook around the post, YO and pull up a loop, YO pull through two loops on hook, YO pull through remaining two loops.)

Pattern

Chain 119. (To make your blanket bigger or smaller, multiply an odd number by 9, then add 2.)

ROW 1: Starting in the 3rd chain from the hook, work a HHDC in each chain. Chain 2 and turn. (117 stitches, turning chain does not count as a stitch)

ROW 2: *Work a HHDC into each of the first 9 stitches. In the next 9 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Repeat from * across the row. End the row with HHDC in each of the last 9 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 3: Work a HHDC into each stitch across the row. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 4: Work a HHDC into each of the first 10 stitches. *In the next 7 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 11 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 10 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 5: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 6: Work a HHDC into each of the first 11 stitches. *In the next 5 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 13 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 11 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 7: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 8: Work a HHDC into each of the first 12 stitches. *In the next 3 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 15 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 12 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 9: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 10: Work a HHDC into each of the first 13 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work a HHDC into each of the next 17 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * across the row. After the last puff, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 13 stitches. 

ROWS 11 – 17: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 18: Work a HHDC into each of the first 18 stitches. *In the next 9 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 9 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 18 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 19: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 20: Work a HHDC into each of the first 19 stitches. *In the next 7 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 11 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC into each of the last 19 stitches. 

ROW 21: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 22: Work a HHDC into each of the first 20 stitches. *In the next 5 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 13 stitches. Repeat from * to the end of the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 20 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 23: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 24: Work a HHDC into each of the first 21 stitches. *In the next 3 stitches, work puff stitch, HHDC, puff stitch. Then work a HHDC into each of the next 15 stitches. Repeat from * across the row. After the last set of puffs, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 21 stitches. Chain 2 and turn. 

ROW 25: Repeat row 3. 

ROW 26: Work a HHDC into each of the first 22 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. *Work a HHDC into each of the next 17 stitches, then work a puff stitch in the next stitch. Repeat from * to the end of the row. After the last puff, end the row with HHDC in each of the last 22 stitches. 

ROWS 27 – 33: Repeat row 3. 

Repeat rows 2 through 33 two more times, then repeat rows 2 through 26. Work one row of HHDC to end the blanket, then chain 2 and turn and begin working down the side of the blanket to begin the border. 

Border

Round 1: Work one round of HHDC around the blanket, working 3 HHDCs into each corner. On the sides of the blanket, do your best to work one HHDC per row. 

Round 2: When you reach the corner you started with, continue working in the same direction and work a DC into each stitch around the blanket. Work 3 DCs into each corner stitch. 

Round 3: When you reach the corner you started with, continue working in the same direction and work alternating front and back post around each DC. When you reach a corner, work 3 alternating front and back post around the middle DC of the 3 DC that made the corner in the round prior. (In other words, if you get to the corner post and you are supposed to work a FPDC, then work a FPDC, a BPDC, and a FPDC all around that corner post. Then in the next stitch you would continue the alternating pattern, working the opposite of whichever stitch you just used.) 

Rounds 4 – 5: Continue working in same direction and repeat round 2. Always match your post double crochets so that they are poking out in the same direction as the previous row. When you finish the last round of your border, slip stitch into the starting corner and tie off.
