Another baby, another blankie.

Posted on October 27, 2011 at 10:00 PM

Another wee friend is coming in January and this blankie will help keep him warm.   This is my Textured, Random Striped Blankie.



Random stripe pattern generated using the Random Stitch Generator, beware it is addictive.  It took me a good two hours to get a pattern that I loved, and then I still tweaked it.

 

The finished size is, 36" x 42".

 

I used Lion Brand Cotton-Ease [Seaspray: 2 skeins, White: 1-1/4 skeins (270 yds), Lime: 1-1/2 skeins (280 yds), Yellow: 1 skein (207 yds), Orange: 3/4 skein (150 yds)] and Lion Brand Martha Stewart Crafts Extra Soft Wool Blend [Sable: 1-1/2 skeins (225 yds)], but any medium weight (worsted) yarn will work.

 

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



 

sc, dc alternating stitch pattern

 

Chain 114.

 

Row 1: sc into 2nd ch from hook, dc into next ch and repeat alternating across row, ending with sc. (113 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 - 123: Repeat rows 2 and 3 following the color pattern, sl st at end of rnd 123 to end off.

 

Color pattern by rows:

9 - Lime

3 - Seaspray

3 - White

7 - Seaspray

3 - White

3 - Sable

8 - White

5 - Banana Cream

2 - White

12 - Orange

4 - Seaspray

3 - White

11 - Seaspray

2 - White

4 - Banana Cream

2 - Orange

9 - Banana Cream

3 - Seaspray

5 - Lime

2 - Sable

4 - White

8 - Lime

6 - Sable

5 - Seaspray

 


Border:

Rnd 1: With right side facing, attach Sable 1 stitch to right of the Lime corner. sc around doing [1 sc, ch 2, 1 sc] in each corner and one sc in each row on the sides (use pattern chart for correct number of stiches for each color)

Rnd 2: Do alternating stitch (sc, dc) around doing 1 additional sc, dc or dc, sc as pattern dictates in each corner.

Rnd 3: Do alternating stitch (dc into sc, sc into dc) around doing 1 additional sc, dc or dc, sc as pattern dictates in each corner.

Rnd 4: Do alternating stitch (sc, dc) around doing 1 additional sc, dc or dc, sc as pattern dictates in each corner.

I love this color combination and pattern. I'm a beginning - very! - crocheter but like something that's a bit of a challenge. I think this will fill the bill perfectly. Thank you for making it available...and for free.

So I am a beginner and had a question about this pattern. I have started it and am confused as to why for the 2nd row you chain 2, and row 3, only a chain 1?
And you were very correct about the random stitch generator being addictive! But I was a little confused on that also, (sorry) In step 2, is that telling you how many rows of a particular color, the ones you choose above. guess I'm just making sure I am understanding it correctly.
Thanks so much

@ Cara.....Because you ch 1 before a sc and ch 2 (or 3) before a dc and one row begins with a sc while the other begins with a dc.

Step 2 on the Random Stripe Generator site is how many rows you would like to see of each color. You can choose them all or choose only the numbers you want. I usually don't choose more than 9 for any one color, but sometimes adjust the pattern after the fact.

I too like this random combination of colors. It makes the doing more enjoyable when there is so much variety to the work that is taking place. A great pattern and especially so for those half skeins we so often have lying around wondering how to use them. Thank you for sharing this pattern.

I love this pattern. It makes the doing that much more enjoyable when there is so much variety to the making and it gives us an opportunity to use those half skeins we have lying around. Thank you for sharing.

I love this pattern. It is well worth the doing when there is so much variety and the opportunity to use up half skeins is quite helpful too. Thank you for sharing.

This is so pretty. I was thinking that it would make a wonderful lap blanket for the car of someone disabled (in a wheelchair, for instance). Plus the cotton yarn makes it usable by people who are allergic to other yarns. Beautiful job.
