Does this blanket look a little familiar? Maybe you have already made it:)
I wanted to update the original Yellow and Gray Bobble and Mesh Stitch Blanket for some time, and when I had the opportunity to experiment with Red Heart Super Saver yarn, this seemed to be the perfect project to do so.
Here’s the one you may have already seen/made:
I added a different border and rearranged the striping sequence a bit, as well as changed the yarn type.
Red Heart Super Saver (100% acrylic, 198 g/7 oz, 333 m/364 yds)
1 skein Dusty Gray, 2 skeins Lemon, 2 skeins White
Size I/5.5mm hook, scissors, tapestry needle
Finished size 42 in x 32 in
Gauge 4 in = 16 st and 12 rows of pattern
Stitches (US TERMS)
Single Crochet (SC): Insert your hook, pull up a loop, then yarn over and pull through two loops.
Bobble (BL): *Yarn over, insert hook, yarn over pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 3 more times into the same stitch to form a cluster or bobble.
With White, chain 126. (Pattern repeat is any multiple of 4, plus 2.)
Row 1: (Mesh stitch rows) SC in the 2nd chain from the hook and CH 1. Skip one chain, then SC, CH 1. Skip the next chain and continue the pattern of SC, CH 1, SK 1 all the way across. When you reach the end of the row, CH 1 and turn.
Row 2: SC into SC of previous row, CH 1. *Skip next CH, SC in next SC of previous row, CH 1. Repeat from * across the row.
Rows 3 – 6: Repeat row 2.
Row 7: (Bobble row) SC in first SC, CH 1. *bobble stitch in next SC space, CH 1, SC in next SC of previous row, CH 1, repeat from * across. CH 1, turn.
Row 8: *SC in first SC, CH 1, SC into top of bobble stitch, CH 1, repeat from * across.
Rows 9 – 12: Repeat the instructions for rows 7 and 8.
Rows 13 – 18: Repeat Row 2 instructions. Pull through with Dusty Gray on your last stitch of row 18.
Rows 19 – 20: Repeat Row 7 and 8 instructions one time.
Repeat rows 1 through 20, 4 times.
Tie off and weave in all the ends.
Round 1: (with white) Pull up a loop in any corner, chain 1. Work 2 SC into the top of each SC, skipping over the ch 1 spaces on the top and bottom of the blanket, work 2 SC at the end of one row on the sides of the blanket, skipping over a row. Work 3 SC into each corner. Join with a slip stitch to starting SC. Ch 1 and turn.
Round 2: Work 1 SC into each SC around, work 3 SC into each corner SC. Join with a slip stitch to starting SC, pull through with Dusty Gray. Chain 3.
Round 3: Do not turn. Continue in the same direction, *skip 2 SC, work 1 SC into the next SC. Chain 3. Repeat from * around. End with 1 SC into the the same stitch of your starting chain 3. Do not turn.
Round 4: *Slip stitch around the next ch 3 space, chain 5. DC5tog in the 4th chain from the hook. DC5tog in the fifth chain from the hook. Slip stitch one side of the bobble to the other to form a ball. Repeat from * around each ch 3 space. (Please watch Youtube video if you are confused as to how to slip stitch the two dc5tog together.)
Tie off and weave in the ends.
