Today we are going to continue making some beautiful blankets and this time we are going to make African flower crochet blankets, which is one of the classic crochet motifs. Also, as it is knitted with pills, you can do it in your spare time.
Crochet blankets with African flowers are a classic that never goes out of style. The best thing is that if you know how to knit the granny stitch, then it will not be difficult for you to knit each one of these pills, since the fabric of this flower is based on the g-spot. If it gets complicated for you, you can do it by alternating the flower motifs with simple squares or granny squares, so you won't have to crochet many flowers. If you also want to have one of these beautiful crochet blankets, then keep reading because we will give you the step-by-step instructions below.
CROCHET BLANKETS AFRICAN FLOWER HEXAGONAL MOTIF As we have said, the African flower is a crochet classic because it is a simple flower but it looks great on any type of fabric. You can use these motifs in a square or hexagonal way. This time we present the hexagonal shape, but you can finish it with a few stitches. high to form a square we are going to make it in three colors so it will be a very colorful and showy blanket.
Occasion I have decided to knit in pink, purple and red but you can use different shades of pink or different shades of the same color or colors that are totally different from each other for each motif we are going to need pink wool to go to the center purple wool to will go in the flower and red wool what will be the rest of the reason.
To start, knit five chain stitches in the pink yarn, close with a slip stitch, then chain 3 to gain height and then continue knitting 12 double crochets as follows, knit together and then a chain stitch, another two stitches and a chain stitch until finish the lap.
The second part changes from wool to purple and weaves the following pattern over each chain stitch: 2 double crochets a chain: double crochets to pass the next stitch, leave four chain stitches, weave this shape the whole round in the next round, continue it with the colored thread purple and you are going to work over the chain stitch between the two double crochets 7 double crochets.
We are about to finish this motif to finish the African flower crochet blankets, you are missing a round in the red color that we are going to knit as follows, place yourself between each motif you were going to knit a double crochet in red but taking it from the second round, that is, from the first round in purple and ending or until the second round, then go on to the next motif, weaving four double crochets in a chain of four double crochets.
At the end of the row knit in red. and make a hooked double crochet again until the row below ends in this way the entire row and thus you finish the motif.
You only need to weave several of these motifs or weave one of these motifs and square motifs around them to form the blanket.
