I’m too in love with this blanket to not share the pattern right away! Even though the blanket isn’t finished, and I don’t know what the border will be, I must share, that’s how excited I am about this pattern! It is a variation of a coral and grey I have done before, but these colors! And the yarn! It’s all about the yarn for this one in my opinion.
(see bottom of page for abbreviation guide)
Finished size 36 x 36. Yarn: Red Heart With Love, one skein each of mint, papaya and white.
Chain 93, (pattern repeat is 8 plus 5.)
ROW 1: (with white) 1 SC into 2nd CH from hook and every chain across to the end.
ROW 2: CH 1 and turn, SC in first SC and in every SC across to the end. CH 1 and turn.
ROW 3: (Change to mint) 1 SC into each of the next 4 SC, *1 DC into each of next 4 SC, 1 SC into each of next 4 SC; REP * to end.
ROW 4: CH 1 and turn. SC into each of next 4 SC, *1 DC into each of next 4 DC, 1 SC into each of next 4 SC, REP * to end, turn.
ROW 5: (Change to white) repeat row 2.
ROW 6: Repeat row 2.
ROW 7: (Change to coral) CH 3 (counts as 1 DC), SK first SC, 1 DC into each of next 3 SC, *1 SC into each of next 4 SC, 1 DC into each of next 4 SC, rep from * to end, turn.
ROW 8: CH 3, SK first ST, 1 DC into each of next 3 DC, *1 SC into each of next 4 SC, 1 DC into each of next 4 DC; REP from * to end, working last DC into 3rd of CH-3, turn.
ROW 9 to the end of the blanket until approximately 36 inches, repeat rows 1 to 8. (When repeating ROW 1 your first SC will be worked into the first SC of the row below.)
So to sum up, you are putting two rows of SC with the white, in between each row of the mint and coral.
The yarn I used, which I am recommending if you want this look, is Red Heart WITH LOVE,
I use a K hook, feel free to go up a size or down, it all depends on how tight you crochet.
Good luck on your project!
