Crochet Crumpled Griddle Stitch Gingham Blanket

Crumpled griddle gingham blanket

I always get very excited when I find two shades of the same color that I can pair with white or cream to create a beautiful gingham blanket. 

These two shades of grey in the Caron Simply Soft line of yarn are perfect for gingham. For years, Caron Simply Soft line of yarn only had one shade of grey, the darker shade. A few years ago, the Feathered Grey, or lighter shade was introduced at Joanns, but only for a limited time and then it was discontinued. 

Luckily, the team at Yarnspirations was able to bring Feathered Grey back, for another limited run and have it available as a special shade in our Daisy Farm Crafts Curated Grey Gingham box. I was so excited when I heard the news! 

And, as a special bonus, they also added a handy little tape measure with our Daisy Farm Logo into the box as well. 

The box is specially priced at $46.99 for 12 skeins of yarn. You will have plenty to make a lap size blanket. I used 2 of each color for a nice-sized baby blanket. 

I love that the grey gingham can be used for a boy or a girl. It is a perfect gender-neutral blanket to make as a gift. We dressed Nora up to take our photos!

I used the Crumpled Griddle Stitch for the blanket. It is a combo of SC and DC. I also made a video tutorial to help you along and teach you how to carry yarn along the rows. Once you make the practice swatch, you will be ready to go. 

The practice swatch will help you discover if you are using a good hook size. You want the stitches to be tight enough to cover the yarn carried through, but not so tight that it turns into a doormat. You want a nice drape.

A common question I receive is if the yarn that is being carried shows through. The lighter grey shows through the white, but once the blanket is finished, it adds to the overall look. 

I talk about all the tips and tricks in the video so if this is your first time making a gingham blanket, I highly suggest giving it a listen.

2 skeins each White, Grey Heather, Feathered Grey

Size H 5.00 mm hook or I 5.5 mm hook (or size needed for a nice drape), tapestry needle, scissors


SINGLE CROCHET (SC): Insert your hook, yarn over (YO) and pull up a loop, YO, pull through two loops on hook.

approximately 34 x 36 inches

Gauge: 7 inches = 25 sts and 20 rows of pattern


-Pull through with the new color on the last step of the stitch.

-Lay whichever color you aren’t using along the top of your work and crochet over it as you go.

-To avoid your yarn getting twisted as you carry it along your work, it helps to always keep one color to the front and one color to the back each time you switch colors.

Chain 126 with Feathered Grey (the lighter grey shade) (Pattern repeat is any odd number x 25 plus 1.) 

ROW 1: In the second chain from the hook, SC. In the next chain, DC. Alternate SC and DC for the next 23 chains. Insert your hook into the 25th chain space, yarn over and pull up a loop but then stop, and change colors. Pull through and finish the SC with Grey Heather. DC into the next stitch with the new color, and crochet OVER the Feathered Grey. You are bringing it along with you, underneath and through your work. You will be changing colors every 25 stitches. Chain 1 and turn.

You should have ended the row with a SC and with Feathered Grey. Bring Grey Heather around the end of your work and continue crocheting over this strand.

ROW 2: Work your first SC into the SC you just made in the previous row. Then, work a DC into the next DC. Continue this alternating pattern and before you finish the 25th stitch, pull up the Feathered Grey to change colors. Now work the next 25 stitches with the new color, switching back to the Grey Heather in the 25th stitch. Continue switching colors every 25 stitches. Chain one and turn.

Repeat row 2 instructions until you have 20 rows. 

ROW 21: Cut the Grey Heather and begin the row with White. Work the first 25 sts and change color to Feathered Grey. Work the crumpled griddle stitch alternating between White and Feathered Gray. 

Each section of alternating colors are 20 rows high. 

Repeat the pattern until you have 5 blocks in height. 

Tie off and weave in the ends. 


Round 1: With white, pull up a loop in any corner. SC into each stitch across the top and bottom of the blanket, work 25 SC per every 20 rows on the sides of the blanket, work SC, CH 2, SC into each corner. Join the round with a SL ST to the first SC of the round. CH 2, do not turn. 

Round 2: Work DC into each stitch, work DC, CH 2, DC around the 2 chains in each corner. Join the round to the first DC, CH 1, do not turn. 

Round 3: Work SC into each stitch, work SC, CH 2, SC, around the 2 chains in each corner. Join the round to the first SC, tie off and weave in the ends. 

Thank you so much for stopping by! I wish you the best of luck on your gingham blanket. I hope you fall in love with them as much as I have. They make the best gifts and everyone I have given one to are just amazed that it is a crocheted blanket. 

XO, Tiffany
