Spring Fling Crochet Blanket

Crochet Blanket Spring Fling Granny Square - Missed Stitches

I'm not one who does Granny Squares or connecting them for blankets. It always seemed so tedious to me so I avoided making them. Continually seeing Granny Square crochet blankets and even clothing in such intricate designs kept me thinking about them every time I began a new project.

I finally have gotten over my fear of the Granny Square connecting and made a blanket!

Welcome to Spring Fling Crochet Blanket!

Easy granny squares in gorgeous Spring colors to get you in the mood for warmer weather! I used four different pastel colors that I varied per block (only 3 colors were used per block) and coupled them with a soft, light blue for the borders around them and around the blanket.

There is no specific combination of colors that I did, I just made sure to vary them throughout. With their initial blue border, the squares measure 7".

Note: Be sure finished sides are 23 dc stitches each.

Joining:
Using your favorite joining method, connect your squares! Not sure what my method is called but I wove yarn using my yarn needle back and forth through the loops farthest from each other on the squares. Then I made a single row of dc all the way around for the final border.

Hope you enjoy!

Happy Hooking!

  1. Hi Shelly,
    I love to crochet granny square blankets. Yours is really pretty and soft looking. I like the colors you used and I especially like how you used such a pretty blue for the border. Hope you make some more! You truly are inspiring me.
    Thanks for sharing your pretty Spring Fling Granny Square blanket - Bobbie :)

  2. Thank you so much for this beautiful soft pastel blanket. My grand daughter loves rainbows and it would be so cliche to literally make a rainbow blanket. This is a soft gentle colour way like looking at the sun breaking through a rain shower. Perfect.

  3. Lucky me just stumbled upon your blanket. Many thanks for sharing the beautiful pattern with us. I am most anxious to begin this project as I just found out 2 days ago that our next door neighbor will be having their first child. As it turns out I completed a knitted cowl while at the doctor's this morning. I found my next project thanks to you! I will go through my vast stash shortly and begin the blanket this evening. Thank you again for the pattern. It is both kind and generous of you.

A New Year And A New Pattern!

Soft Bobbles Baby Blanket aka Effortless Baby Blanket

Crochet baby blankets are very popular and there are so many out there! Here's a little pattern for you to whip up for the newborn in your life. This pattern is very simple and very easy to make.


There are many on the web that are very similar to this with soft cluster stitches and thus is how I got my inspiration to make my own! I actually used a dish cloth pattern and turned it into a baby blanket.







I'm not perfect at making crochet patterns but I hope all the information any crocheter would need is in here!

Hook Size: H8 Gauge: 1” across cluster Measures: 32” wide by 34"-36” long (sizes vary by crafter) Supplies: 2 skeins each of three contrasting yarns. I used one of my favorite brands of yarn- Caron Simply Soft in Soft BlueRoyal Blue and Off White.
Instructions: Ch 122
Row 1: sc in second ch from hook and across
Row 2: ch 1, *(sc, ch 2, 4 dc) all in next sc, sk next 3 sc, repeat from * across, sc in last sc
Row 3…

Perfect Pot Holders: Free Crochet Pattern

Perfect Pot Holders

Double-thick, perfect pot holders! Made with cotton yarn. This pattern may be somewhere else on the internet, in a different context, but here is mine for the way I make my pot holders.






ch 27 Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook and sc in each ch across. Ch 1, turn
Row 2: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sc, sl st in next sc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1 turn
Row 3: sc in 1st sc, *hdc in next sl st, sl st in next hdc*, repeat * to * across, sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Repeat rows 2 and 3 until piece is square. Make two and then using a steel yarn needle and the same yarn used for making them, combine them using an overcasting stitch.


Light & Lacy Crochet Baby Blanket

This lacy crochet blanket made of rows of tilted clusters is perfect for your next stashbuster project! The lacy spacing between the crochet stitches goes great in Summer for your little one!

Baby pink, sage green and a soft cream come together to make a delightful crochet baby blanket. I may have put too many stitches on the sides because it made for a ruffled border, which is fine because I think it looks cute that way! The pattern is quite easy!










Supplies: Hook Size: 5.00mm 1.5 skeins each of pink, green and cream I used Bernat Satin Yarn in Fern and Flamingo mixed with Caron Simply Soft Off-White
Sizing information: Gauge: 1 pattern repeat = 3" Finished Size: 27" x 32" Skill: Beginner/Intermediate
