Today's post is special for everyone who likes to decorate their bedroom or living room, because we are going to learn how to crochet step-by-step blankets that, due to their size, 80 cm by 90 cm, are perfect to snuggle up in. the armchair while watching a movie covered with a nice blanket.
There is a great variety of stitches for crochet blankets, in other of our tutorials we have explained how to make several models of knitted blankets and of different sizes and this time we are going to knit a nice medium-sized blanket that you can use on the bed or as a blanket to cover the couch.
CROCHET BLANKETS STEP BY STEP For this blanket we will need 200 grams of medium thickness yarn in the color of your choice and a number 1.5 hook. To begin we have to knit 422 chain stitches, or as many as are necessary to reach 80 cm in length, then knit 3 air stitches to replace the first double crochet and starting at the 5th stitch from the hook, work the following sequence:
1 double crochet in each of the next 3 stitches and form the first row of the motif as follows: leave 4 empty spaces, then work a filled space, 3 large empty spaces, 5 double crochets, until the first row of blankets is finished to crochet step by step.
On the next row, knit 2 double crochets in each of the next 2 stitches, a drop stitch skipping a stitch, then knit 11 double crochets, one in each stitch of the previous round, a drop stitch, skip a stitch, then repeat this sequence one more time, then double crochet in each of the next two stitches. Repeat this sequence until the end of the round, which should give you approximately three more repetitions.
SECOND PART OF CROCHET BLANKETS STEP BY STEP To continue with these crochet blankets step by step, you have to crochet 4 double crochets, one for each stitch of the previous round, then a chain stitch in the air, then in each empty space, crochet a crochet stitch and a double crochet over the double crochet. following, until the motif is formed, once formed from the 3rd pass.
Then work the spaces with fancy stitches as follows: knit 4 air stitches and then two incomplete double crochets, that is without finishing the yarn over, stuck in the fourth stitch from the hook, yarn over and close the 3 loops together in one. once. Repeat rows 1 to 12 8 times and repeat row 8 once, then repeat rows 1 to 12 again and work the remaining 97 rows like this. if they are not enough to reach 80 cm in length, then repeat a few more rounds.
At the end of this round, the 97 works 4 rows as you did at the beginning of the blanket, this will help your blanket to have more shape and be more resistant, you can also only work the last 10 cm of rows of half double crochets or stitches high, to gain height, you can do this same edge on the sides of the blanket, so it will be a little bigger.
