Crochet Green Baby Blanket, free pattern



Another baby blanket is ready!



I borrowed the Teddy Bear and small chair for the pictures from my youngest son. Too bad he is too old (he’s 2 years old now) to be wrapped in this darling baby afghan.  



I tried to do my best to write the pattern, but mistakes and typos are possible. I didn’t have anyone proof-read or test the pattern. If something doesn’t make sense, don’t hesitate to ask in the comments or in an e-mail.

I would rate the skill level for this blanket as advanced. In this pattern I used 2-dc clusters (two unfinished dc made in same space, then finished together) as well as 2dctog (two unfinished dc made in two different spaces, then finished together). The ends of rows are somewhat challenging too. 

In case you would like to use this stitch pattern for another project, it’s a multiple of 6, plus 2.  



This pattern is my original design. It cannot be posted on other sites or distributed in any other form. If you would like to share this pattern, you can post ONE image on your site with the link to my original post. You can use this pattern to make items for personal use or for sale. If you sell finished items from this pattern, you must give design credit to Lacy Crochet blog (lacycrochet.blogspot.com). Please, respect my work. Thank you!


Finished Size: approximately 38 inch (96.5 cm) square



Snuggly Wuggly Big by Loops and Threads, 1 ball (1263 yards/1154 m)


US hook G/6



Ch 128 loosely.



Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, *ch 1, skip 2 ch, (2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in next ch, ch 1, skip 2 ch, sc in next ch* across. Ch 3, turn.



Note: After you make (2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in one ch, the next ch may become very small and hardly visible. So make sure you are skipping 2 ch and not 3!

When Row 1 is finished you must have 18 pattern repeats!



Row 2: dc in next ch-1 space, *ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 3, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 1, 2dctog over next two ch-1 spaces* across; end with ch 1, 2dctog over next ch-1 space and last sc. Ch 2, turn.



Row 3: (dc, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in same beginning space, *ch 1, sc in next ch-3 space, ch 1, (2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in next 2dctog* across; end with ch 1, (2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in space between last 2 dc. Ch 1, turn.



Row 4: sc in same beginning space, *sc in next ch-1 space, ch 1, 2dctog over next two ch-1 spaces, ch 1, sc in next ch-1 space, ch 3* across; end with sc in next ch-1 space, sc in last dc. Ch 1, turn.



Row 5: sc in same beginning space, *ch 1, (2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster, ch 1, 2-dc cluster) all in next 2dctog, ch 1, sc in next ch-3 space* across; end with sc in last sc. Ch 3, turn.



Repeat Row 2 – Row 5 until you have made 84 rows in total. You must end with Row 4.



Trim



First Round:



Working in last row: hdc in same beginning space, ch 1, skip next sc, *hdc in next 2dctog, ch 1, hdc in next ch-1 space, ch 1, hdc in next ch-3 space, ch 1, hdc in next ch-1 space, ch 1* across; end with {ch 1, hdc} 3 times in corner space.



Working in end of rows: *ch 1, hdc* in each end of row across; {ch 1, hdc} 3 times in corner space.



Working in original chain: *ch 1, hdc in next ch-space, ch 1, hdc in space where clusters were made, ch 1, hdc in next space where sc was made* across; {ch 1, hdc } 3 times in corner space.



Working in end of rows: *ch 1, hdc* in each end of row across; {ch 1, hdc} 2 times in corner space, ch 1, sl st to join round.

  3. This brings back memories. I crochet a blanklet that was similar to this one for our son when he was born. I passed it down to one of my cousins when she had her son. She thought she could not have kids. She still has the blanket.

  16. Great pattern! At the end of the first row, is the last st in the last chain? I think I may have made a mistake along the way..

    1. Yes, at the end of the first row, the last sc should be made into last chain.

  17. Row 1: please explain how the 2dc-cluster works? How do I keep it all in the same stitch? :-)
