Hello everyone, I’m back with a long awaited crochet blanket pattern. It’s taken me forever to finish this blanket little bit by little bit while my hand heals up, but I’m so happy it’s ready to share with you all.
This blanket pattern is one of those crochet patterns that can be taken in so many different directions and the crochet blanket itself is really versatile and practical.
You can make it any size you want, from a baby blanket all the way to a king size blanket. Take it to the park, snuggle on the couch, swaddle baby up, the possibilities are only limited by your imagination. You could make one for you, one for baby and one to update the décor in the living room. Just sayin’.
I used the granny stripe stitch for this pattern. If you missed my granny stripe stitch tutorial or just need a refresher, be sure to click the link and check it out.
I used Berroco Remix Light in a #3, which seems more like a #2 yarn. For this project it isn’t as important, because it doesn’t have to be an exact fit, but if you use it for other patterns, be sure to check your gauge.
I LOVE this Berroco yarn. It’s a blend made from 100% recycled fibers, so it’s got a little bit of everything. They really know how to blend them because its got a great feel to it, it’s easy to work with and they have some great color choices.

About the pattern:
The chains when you start will be the width of the blanket, so make it the width you want by adding more or less chains. Just make sure it’s in multiples of 4 chains.
The length will be the number of rows, and can be adjusted to any length you want to adding more or less rows. I’ll explain more as the pattern goes along, but keep mind you can alter this design to make a blanket of any size (or a doily or beach towel lol).

The end of row 107 cut the yarn and weave all the ends
If you’d like a shorter or longer blanket, just REP row 2 and 3 less or more times.
Tassels (Make 4)
For the tassel, you can make them however you like. You can cut a piece of cardboard to whatever dimensions you want your tassels to be and use it to wrap your tassel around. Make sure you leave yourself an extra half an inch or so to cut off the tassel and make it even.
For my tassels, I just used a gift card, which is about 3.5 inches long, so I had about a 3″ tassel when it was finished.
Cut two 14″ pieces of yarn. Put them aside
Step 1: Wrap the yarn around the card 30 times. You can adjust this number, depending on how thick you want your tassel. (Picture 1)
Step 2: Place one of the 14″ pieces of yarn that we cut earlier under the top edge of the wrapped string and tie a couple knots. (Picture 2)
Step 3: Cut the wrapped yarn along the bottom of the card. (Picture 3)
Step 4: Take the other 14″ piece of yarn and place it about 3/4 inch below the top of the tassel. Tie a couple knots and wrap the yarn around the knot a few times, then tie a couple knots again. Hide the ends behind the wrapped yarn into the tassel with the yarn needle. Trim all the ends. (Picture 4, 5, 6)
Step 5: Using the two strings at the top of the tassel to attach into the corner of the blanket, tie a few knots then weave all the ends. Do the same into the other three corners. (Picture 7 and 8)
That’s a wrap, congratulations on your new blanket! I hope you enjoyed making it. Remember, it doesn’t have to be the same dimensions as the one demonstrated here. Make it to suit whatever task you need it for.
Till next time, happy crocheting! ✌💖🧶
