Happy February, friends!
It’s a new month, a new season (almost), and I am feeling so thankful to have some new patterns to share with you. It's actually been a while since I posted a free pattern on the blog and I am just so excited to put it all into action!
I am so happy to share the Marshmallow Blanket with you! I created this blanket for a little girl some time ago; every time I look at the colors I immediately fall in love! Baby blankets are really useful and essential for newborns and babies, plus this would make a lovely baby shower gift (if it's a boy just use boyish colors)!
The Marshmallow Blanket (32'x32 / 81x81cm exl.border)
5.00 mm (H/8) crochet hook
100% cotton yarn ( I used Rico Creative Cotton in Rose, Brown and Natural)
12 sts in dc =4' (10 cm)
Row 1: Dc in 4th ch ( counts as dc) from hook and in each ch across, turn, ch 3 (96 sts)
Row 2: Dc in each st across, turn, ch 3 (96 sts)
Row 3 - 74: Repeat Row 2
Fasten off and weave in any ends.
Blanket Border (Scallop/ Shell Edging)
Worked over: multiple of 4 stitches + 1
To begin work one round of sc around entire blanket (work 3 sc in each corner) making sure you end up with the above stitch count.Pattern: Ch 1, sc in first st, *skip 1 st, 5 dc in next st, skip 1 st, 1 sc in next st; Rep from * to end, sc in last st. Fasten off.
