Timeless Crochet Baby Blanket
While Shelley & I were creating our Timeless Collection we wanted a blanket that was super simple.
We decided to slightly modify our Simple Stripes Blanket and work it all one colour.
The result, a timeless blanket to be treasured for years to come.
And I am delighted to offer it to you as a free pattern.
We used just under 700m of beautiful New Zealand merino to create our in-store baby blankets.
The baby size measures approximately 60cm (24 in) wide by 70cm (27.5 in).
To make a cot size blanket measuring 80cm (30 in) wide by 105cm (40 in) you'll need approximately 1400m of yarn.
With our 4.00mm hook, we have a gauge of 3.5 2DC groups wide x 4 DC rows high in 5cm.
So let's get to the pattern.
3.5 2DC groups wide x 4 DC rows high = 5cm
Stitches used (US Terms):
Ch - Chain
HDC - Half Double Crochet
DC - Double Crochet
Row 1: Chain 87 (115), work 1HDC into 3rd chain from hook, then work 1HDC into each chain to the end, turn (85, 113 HDC)
Row 2: Chain 2 (counts as 1DC), work 1DC into the same stitch as ch2, skip 1, *2DC in next HDC, skip 1 stitch*, repeat from * to * to last stitch, into last stitch work 2DC, turn (43, 57 2DC groups - including start & end groups)
Row 3: Chain 2 (counts as 1DC), work 2DC into each space to end, into turning chain of previous row work 1DC, turn (42, 56 2DC groups)
Row 4: Chain 2 (counts as 1DC), work 1DC into space right beside chain 2, work 2DC into each space to end, turn (43, 57 2DC groups - including start & end groups)
Repeat rows 3 & 4 until blanket measures approximately 70cm, 105cm.
Last row: Chain 1, work 1HDC into each stitch to end (85, 113 HDC)
Cut yarn and pull through the last stitch.
Weave in all ends.
