Color Blocked Stripes Baby Blanket

Posted on March 9, 2010 at 12:02 PM Comments comments (15)

I recently finished this baby blanket and thought I would share the "pattern" that I came up with as I was making it.



 


The finished size is, 33" x 37".

 


I used Lion Brand Cotton Ease [Blue: 3-1/2 skeins (725 yds), White: 1-1/2 skeins (311 yds), Lime: 3/8 skein (79 yds)], but any medium weight yarn would work.


J (6 mm) Hook  (roughly 7 pattern rows & 14 stitches = 4")


sc, dc alternating stitch pattern


 

Chain 108.


Row 1: sc into 2nd ch from hook, dc into next ch and repeat alternating across row, ending with sc. (107 st)


Row 2: Turn, ch 2 (or 3), dc into sc, sc into dc, repeat across row.


Row 3: Turn, ch 1, sc into dc, dc into sc, repeat across row.


Rows 4 - 90: Repeat rows 2 and 3 following the color pattern.


Color pattern by rows:


Blue: 30


White: 3

Lime: 2

White: 3


Blue: 14


White: 3

Lime: 2

White: 3


Blue: 30



 

Border:


White: 1 row sc, 1 row dc, 1 row sc

Lime: 2 rows sc

White: 1 row sc, 1 row dc, 1 row sc

Blue: 1 row reverse sc
