I have finally finished this beautiful blanket for my baby nephew and I am so very excited to share the pattern with you! It only requires 2 stitches so it’s really quite simple. It’s recommended that baby blankets measure at least 40×60″, this ended up measuring 40.5×45.5″, if you want yours to be longer simply add in another block of color, any shade of blue, or even white would look gorgeous. Ready?? Let’s go!
(See stitch explanations at the very bottom)
*2 skeins of each color
H hook (5mm)
1. sc chainless foundation = 142sts
2. Ch 1, turn, *sc, Hhdc* across, end with sc, ch 1, turn = 142sts
3. *Hhdc, sc* across, ending with Hhdc, ch 1, turn = 142sts
Repeat rows 2 & 3 until desired length, fasten off, see row 156 below.
Rows 1-31. Caron Simply Soft “Dark Country Blue”
Rows 32-62. Caron Simply Soft “Soft Blue”
Rows 63-93. Caron Simply Soft “Cobalt Blue”
Rows 94-124. Caron Simply Soft “Royal Blue”
Rows 125-155. Caron Simply Soft “Dark Country Blue”
Row 156. Starting in one corner, sc evenly along side, then across top, then along remaining side – 3sc in corners, finish by completing 3 sc in last corner, then sl st in next stitch to complete. Fasten off & weave in ends.
sl st = slip stitch
Here’s a close-up of the stitches, isn’t it just lovely?
