Mint and Coral single and double crochet blanket




I'm too in love with this blanket to not share the pattern right away! Even though the blanket isn't finished, and I don't know what the border will be, I must share, that's how excited I am about this pattern!

It is a variation of a coral and grey I have done before, but these colors! And the yarn! It's all about the yarn for this one in my opinion. 




Do a foundation chain of multiples of 8 plus five.

ROW 1: (with white) 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook and every chain across to the end.

ROW 2: ch 1, turn, sc in first sc and in every sc across to the end.

ROW 3: (Change to mint) 1 sc into 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in next 3 chs, *1 dc into each of next 4 chs, 1 sc into each of next 4 sc; rep * to end, turn.


ROW 4: Ch 1, 1 sc into each of next 4 sc, *1 dc into each of next 4 dc, 1 sc into each of next 4 sc, rep * to end, turn.

ROW 5: (change to white) repeat row 1.

ROW 6: Repeat row 2

ROW 7: (change to coral) Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), sk first sc, 1 dc into each of next 3 sc, *1sc into each of next 4 sc, 1 dc into each of next 4 sc, rep from * to end, turn.

 ROW 8: Ch 3, sk first st, 1 dc into each of next 3 dc, *1 sc into each of next 4 sc, 1 dc into each of next 4 dc; rep from * to end, working last dc into 3rd of ch-3, turn.

ROW 9 to the end of the blanket however big you'd like to make it, repeat rows 1 to 8.

So to sum up, you are putting two rows of sc with the white, in between each row of the mint and coral.

The yarn I used, which I am recommending if you want this look, is Red Heart -WITH LOVE,

I am not suggesting Red Heart Super Saver. It's too scratchy. Don't do it, even though it's cheap and you'll find it on sale everywhere.

I use a K hook, feel free to go up a size or down, it all depends on how tight or loose you crochet.




Good luck! And please tag me on Instagram @daisyfarmcrafts. I would love to see how it's working out!
