Here it is in all of its glory! I started this in the 100 items in 100 days challenge and I meant for it to be the very last entry but I just couldn’t wait to get this finished.
I love granny square blankets, but this one is great too! It has one thing going for it that the Granny Square blankets don’t. Can you guess what it is?
It has no holes! That is right, absolutely no holes for the air to get through. So, if you want to crochet a blanket for a non-Granny Square lover this is the one to use! I used DK weight yarn for this blanket as it was what I had on hand and a G sized hook.
This is a super simple pattern and I am going to share it with you right now! If you need a more complete pattern, I am pretty sure that there is already one on Ravelry.com.
Chain the length you want the blanket to be as a multiple of four. Half double crochet in each chain across.
chain five, skip the first two half double crochets and half double crochet in the third, half double crochet in the fourth chain two and skip the next two half doubles, half double in the next two and continue in this pattern across the blanket.
Chain two and turn. You will have a funny loopy thing there at the start. Double crochet down into the 2nd row into the first half double that you skipped and then double crochet again into the second half double that you skipped in the row previously.
Chain two and continue in this pattern across the blanket.
This is the basic pattern if you have any problems just let me know.
The last row in the blanket you double crochet into the spaces and half double into the tops of the double crochets of the previous row.
To finish it out I simply crocheted a simple grey border around all the edges of the blanket with two chains in each corner stitch.
Talk to you later,
P.S. This one is for sale in the ChocolateDogStudio.etsy.com shop!
