"I really enjoyed crocheting this textured baby blanket in pastel. This crochet pattern is a repeat of one row using single crochet and double crochet stitches. These pastel yarn colors just pop with this pattern. This blanket is just the right size for both a baby blanket and a lap afghan. Not too big that it drags on the floor, but large enough to take the chill off. Additionally, some folks like to feel the texture in a blanket and this is full of lots of nice squishy texture."
NotesSo I was crocheting this beautiful baby blanket and thought it would look pretty with our without a crochet edging. The thinking was that the pastel colors were so complimentary that I did not want to take away from the color scheme with a border. I will let you be the judge.
The crochet pattern on the website also has links to video tutorials to help with the pattern.
Crochet HookH/8 or 5 mm hook
Yarn Weight(4) Medium Weight/Worsted Weight and Aran (16-20 stitches to 4 inches)
Crochet GaugeGauge is not critical to this pattern. I had 15 stitches per four inches. This pattern is worked in multiples of 3. Therefore to make this blanket wider or narrower, increase or decrease stitches by 3. The length can be adjusted by the rows completed.
Finished SizeWith the crochet edge, the blanket measures 44 inches wide X 39 inches long.

- Soft Pink Caron Simply Soft Yarn 2 skeins or 630 yards.

- Size H Crochet Hook
- Yarn Needle
Chain 171 (To make this bigger or smaller, use multiples of 3).
Row 1: 2 DC in the 3rd CH from the hook, [SK 2 CH, in the next CH, SC and 2 DC]. Repeat from [ ] across until the last 3 CH. SK 2 STs and end with SC in last ST. Turn.
Row 2: CH 2, 2DC in Same ST. [SK 2 DC, in the next ST Work SC and 2 DC in SC in ST]. Repeat until the last 3 STs, end with a SC in the last ST. Turn
Rows 3-112: Repeat Row 2.
(Note: there is an alternative to row 2: Rather than start the row with CH 2 and DC, you can start the row with CH 1 and SC).
Yarn Color Pattern
Begin with 5 rows of the green yarn.
Repeat the next 15 rows 5 times.
5 rows soft pink, 2 rows white, 5 rows orchid, 3 rows green. 15 rows X 7 = 105 rows
End with 2 additional rows of the green yarn. (that way the pattern starts and ends with a total of 5 green rows).
Total rows = 5 green + 105 pastel rows + 2 green = 112 rows.
Weave in ends prior to starting the border. Trim off any excess yarn. Once this is done, you are ready to add the border. It also makes it so much nicer later when you complete the border…there are only a few pieces of yarn that need to be weaved in later and snip off. Change to the White yarn
Round 1: Starting in one of the corners and chain 3. DC around the entire blanket, working 3 DC into each corner ending with a SL ST into the top CH of the first chain 3.
Round 2-4: Start with a CH 3. Then go around the blanket again; however, this time, you will work the DC alternating between the front and back post. See more detail below for the corners…
Corners: When you get to the corners, continue to work 3 DC into the middle DC ST from the previous row. However, on the other two stitches from the previous row DCs in the corner – blend those into the FPDC and BPDC. End with a Sl ST.
Weave in yarn ends and cut off excess.
