CROCHET MARSHMALLOW BLANKET FREE PATTERN

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)

Materials
5.00 mm (H/8) crochet hook
100% cotton yarn ( I used Rico Creative Cotton in Rose, Brown and Natural)
Tapestry needle 
Scissors

12 sts in dc =4' (10 cm)

Pattern
Ch 98
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)

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.

  3. I love this blanket but I have a question. I need to know how many yards are needed to make this afghan. Thanks

    1. Thank you!
      You should consider using 11 skeins (approx. 1050 yards) of natural, and around 8-9 skeins of the other colors(appro.7502 yards). Hope this helps!
