New design! What do you guys think? It’s actually a little bit of an older design because I was going to include this pattern in my very first crochet book, coming Fall of 2016 but I decided not to include blankets in it and so…..here you go 🙂
This is a super easy blanket that looks AMAZING draped over a couch or thrown on a bed. Who doesn’t love ruffles anyway?
K hook (6.5 mm)
6 ½ rows and 9 dc = 3”square
I used four skeins of Rainbow Classic by Purl Essence.
Each skein of Rainbow Classic is:
11 oz. (312 g)/ 615 yds. (562 m)
Yardage: approx. 2000 yds.
You will not count your beginning ch as a st. Finished blanket, when lying flat, measures 48″ wide and 58″ long.
Hk – hook
Ch – chain
Lp – loop
St – stitch
Slst(s) – slip stich(es)
Sc(s) – single crochet(s)
Dc – double crochet
Row 1 – sc in 2nd ch from hk, sc in next 2, *dc in next 20, sc in next 3, repeat from * across. (141)
Row 2 – Ch 1 and turn, sc in first 3, *dc in next 20, sc in next 3, repeat from * across. (141)
Row 3 through Row 175 – Repeat Row 2
Fasten off and weave in ends. I like to work a row of slsts up the center of your sc rows. This helps make the blanket a little more ruffle-y. For more help with this, you can download the free pdf of this pattern HERE.
