Hello my crocheters, for my second baby blanket I choose the chevron stitch. I love this pattern and I think it’s perfect for a blanket.
Of course my model for this post was my cat, he just loves everything I crochet and he enjoys sleeping on my crocheted or knitting items.
The dimension of the blanket is 91 cm length X 91 cm width (36 inches X 36 inches). I used cotton from my stash, (I bought a large quantity of cotton a few years ago and I’ve lost the label of it and unfortunately I don’t know the brand) and a 2 mm hook, the pattern is very easy, perfect even if you are a beginner.
I love the color (a beautiful mustard, unfortunately the light wasn’t to good and I didn’t succeed to capture the true shade of the color) and I think is perfect for both sex: girl or boy, but you can choose any color you love for your blanket. You can use this pattern to crochet any kind of blanket, not just a baby blanket, you can crochet a lapghan or a throw blanket just for you or for someone you love, you just have to work until you reach the size you need.
The blanket sizing:
Baby blanket: 91 cm x 91 cm / 36″x 36″;
Toddler blanket: 107 cm x 132 cm / 42″x 52″;
Lapghan: 91 cm x 122 cm / 36″x 48″;
Throw blanket: 132 cm x 152 cm / 52″x 60″;
Twin bed: 150 cm x 216 cm / 59″x 85″;
Full/ queen: 229 cm x 229 cm/ 90″x 90″;
King: 274 cm x 229 cm/ 108″x 90″.
You will need:
300 g cotton (use your favorite brand);
2 mm hook (or what hook size is indicated on the label);
sc= single crochet;
dc= double crochet;
For this pattern you have to make multiple of 12 chain.
Row 1: 3ch, 5dc, *skip 2 ch, 5dc, 2ch, 5dc*, repeat *-* in the last ch make 2 dc ;
Row 2: 3ch, 5dc starting with the 1st dc of the previous row, skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc (the 5th dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), *2ch, 5dc (the 1st dc in space of 2ch of the previous row), skip 2 dc of previous row, 5dc starting with the 2nd dc from the hook of the previous row*, repeat *-*, in the last dc of previous row make 2dc;
Repeat from row 2 until you reach the desired length.
Make an edge working 2 rounds of sc.
You can wash it by hand or in a washing machine at 30 degrees and iron it (only if you use cotton yarn) or block it.
I hope you will enjoy making this pattern like I did, and as you can see my cat enjoys the blanket very much, I think he will have a new crochet blanket.
