Joyful Easter: A Lovey Crochet Blanket Pattern

This blanket of yummy Easter colors- purple, blue, pink and yellow- was inspired by the midwife blanket. I admire filet crochet and when I found this stitch I knew I wanted to make something that would POP!

The pattern is SUPER easy, very ideal for the beginner crocheter. It's a multiple of 14 plus 17. However, the way I worked mine up with an even amount of double crochets on the ends to make the filet repeats centered, may not be the way yours works up.

Hook: 5mm/H8 Multiples: 14 + 17 (with variant) My Finished Size: 30" x 36" Gauge: 4in Materials: One skein each of 4 colors of your choice. Special Stitches: V-stitch= [dc, ch 1, dc] all in same stitch                             Shell= [3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc] all in same stitch


ch 101 1) dc in 4th ch from hook and in each ch across
2) ch 2, turn, 1 dc in each of next 3 dc, *ch 2, sk next 3 dc, V-stitch in next dc, ch 2, sk next 3 dc, dc in each of next 7 dc, repeat from * across to last 10 sts- ch 2, sk next 3 dc, V-stitch…
