Crochet Triple Bobble Blanket

Hello!

I’m Nicolina and I’m Tiffany’s second oldest daughter. I’ve been crocheting for almost a year now and I’m excited to share this new pattern. I learned bobbles! Definitely not as hard as I thought as a beginner. This was great practice for me to get the hang of counting stitches so the bobbles all line up perfectly.

I chose Caron Simply Soft yarn in Dark Country Blue, Plum Wine, and White. I love the navy blue and pink together and I was excited to find it in this yarn.

This blanket uses three different stitches: single crochet, herringbone half double crochet and DC4tog bobbles. If you’d like to see a tutorial of how to work the stitches in this blanket together, you can watch this video before you get started!

Materials

Finished size 29 in x 32 in

4 skeins of Caron Simply Soft in White

1 skein of Caron Simply Soft in Plum Wine

1 skein of Caron Simply Soft in Dark Country Blue

Hook Size H, 5.00mm

(A PDF of this pattern is available on Etsy.)

Pattern

Chain 96 in blue. (If you’d like to make your blanket bigger or smaller, the pattern repeat is a multiple 6.)

ROW 1: Starting in the second chain from the hook, work a Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC) in each stitch to the end of the row. When you reach the end of the row, chain 1 and turn.

(Here’s how to work a HHDC: YO, insert your hook, pull up a loop and pull directly through the first loop on your hook. Then YO and pull through the remaining two loops.)

ROWS 2-10: Work nine more rows of HHDC in Dark Country Blue. The chain 1 from the row below does not count as a stitch, so at the beginning of each row you’ll want to insert your hook directly into the first stitch of the row below, and then you don’t have to go into the turning chain at the end of the row. When you reach the end of row 5, pull through with White on the last stitch when you still have two loops left on your hook. Cut the Dark Country Blue yarn, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain 1 with White and turn.

ROWS 11-17: Work seven rows of HHDC in White, chaining 1 and turning at the end of the first six rows. At the end of the last row, pull through with Plum Wine, and chain 1 and turn.

ROW 18: Work 5 SCs, then work one DC4TOG cluster to make a bobble.

(Here’s how to DC4TOG: YO, insert your hook, pull up a loop, and pull through 2 loops. Then, *YO again, insert your hook into the same space, pull up a loop and pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 2 more times until you have 5 loops on your hook. Then YO and pull through all 5 loops on your hook.)

Continue the pattern of working 5 SCs, then a DC4TOG cluster until you reach the end of the row. You should end with 5 SCs. On the last SC, pull through with White. Cut the Plum Wine and leave a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain 1 with White and turn.

ROWS 19-25: Work seven rows of HHDC in White, chaining 1 and turning at the end of the first six rows. At the end of the last row, pull through with Plum Wine, and chain 1 and turn.

ROW 26: Repeat row 18 in Plum Wine. Chain 1 and turn.

ROW 27: Work 1 row of single crochet.

ROW 28: Repeat row 18 in Plum Wine. Chain 1 and turn.

ROW 29: Work 1 row of single crochet.

ROW 30: Repeat row 18 in Plum Wine. On the last SC, pull through with White. Cut the Plum Wine and leave a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain 1 with White and turn. 

ROWS 31-37: Work 7 rows of HHDC in White.

ROW 38: Repeat row 18 in Plum Wine.

ROWS 39-51: Work 13 rows of HHDC in White.

ROWS 52-61: Work 10 rows of HHDC in Dark Country Blue.

ROWS 62-74: Work 13 rows of HHDC in White, at the end of the last row, pull through with Plum Wine.

Repeat rows 18 through 38, then work 7 rows of HHDC in White and end with 10 rows of HHDC in Dark Country Blue.

Border

Weave in all ends. 

Round 1: With White, pull up a loop in any corner and chain one. Work one round of single crochet around the blanket, working 3 SCs into each corner. When you reach the corner you started with it, slip stitch into the starting stitch, chain 1 and turn. 

Rounds 2 – 4: Work one round of HHDC, working 3 HHDCs into each corner. When you reach the corner you started with it, slip stitch into the starting stitch, chain 1 and turn. 

When you finish the last round, slip stitch into the starting corner and tie off. 

Thanks so much for coming to read this pattern, I hope you enjoy making this blanket! When you finish please come share a picture with us on Facebook or Instagram with #daisyfarmcrafts, we’d love to see! —Nicolina

Instructions

Chain 96 in blue. (If you’d like to make your blanket bigger or smaller, the pattern repeat is a multiple 6.)

ROW 1: Starting in the second chain from the hook, work a Herringbone Half Double Crochet (HHDC) in each stitch to the end of the row. When you reach the end of the row, chain 1 and turn.

ROWS 2 – 10: Work nine more rows of HHDC in Dark Country Blue. The chain 1 from the row below does not count as a stitch, so at the beginning of each row you’ll want to insert your hook directly into the first stitch of the row below, and then you don’t have to go into the turning chain at the end of the row. When you reach the end of row 5, pull through with White on the last stitch when you still have two loops left on your hook. Cut the Dark Country Blue yarn, leaving a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain 1 with White and turn.

ROW 18: Work 5 SCs, then work one DC4TOG cluster to make a bobble.

(Here’s how to DC4TOG: YO, insert your hook, pull up a loop, and pull through 2 loops. Then, *YO again, insert your hook into the same space, pull up a loop and pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 3 more times until you have 6 loops on your hook. Then YO and pull through all 6 loops on your hook.)

Continue the pattern of working 5 SCs, then a DC4TOG cluster until you reach the end of the row. You should end with 5 SCs. On the last SC, pull through with White. Cut the Plum Wine and leave a tail long enough to weave in later. Chain 1 with White and turn.
