Woohoo! It’s time for my section of the Wonder Crochet Blanket CAL!
I’ve been waiting for this moment for quite a while now 😉
My section of the blanket has particular meaning to me. I created it as an homage to my Grandma, who taught me how to crochet.
My Grandma is an AWESOME crocheter. She was a great teacher and I owe my love of crochet to her! (Thanks Grandma! <3)
So today I’m sharing my part of the blanket with you, but I’m also sharing a part of my crochet journey…so thank you for taking this journey with me!
Just a reminder: you should be using an I/5.5mm hook (or your equivalent) and worsted weight. For my sample, I used various Loops and Threads Impeccable colors.
Okay, let’s get started!
Depending on what section you chose to do for #12, you’ll have either a row of sc, hdc, or dc as your last row.
If your last row left you with the wrong side facing you, then you’re good to go! If it left you with the right side, do a row of hdc before you begin the pattern below.
sk – skip
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
fpdc – front post double crochet
fptr – front post treble crochet
bpdc – back post double crochet
BLO – back loops only
FLO – front loops only
Turning chains do NOT count as a stitch throughout. Repeats are in ( ).
R1: (right side) ch2, turn, (in BLO, 1 dc each in next 4 stitches; sk next st, in next st: 2dc, 2ch, 2dc; sk next st, in BLO, 1 dc each in next 4 stitches) repeat ( ) until end
R2: ch2, turn, (4hdc, ch1, sc in 2ch from last round, ch1, 4hdc) repeat ( ) until end
R3: ch2, turn, (in BLO, 1 dc each in next 4 stitches, skip the ch1, in sc from last round: 2hdc, ch1, 2hdc; skip next st; in BLO, 1 dc each in next 4 stitches) repeat ( ) until end
R4: ch2, turn, (4hdc, hdc in 1st hdc from cluster in last round, skip one hdc, hdc in ch, skip one hdc, hdc in 2nd hdc from cluster in last round, 4hdc) repeat ( ) until end
R5: ch2, turn, dc in each stitch across
R6: ch2, turn, (in FLO, 1 dc each in next 5 stitches, fptr, in FLO, 1 dc each in next 5 stitches) rep ( ) until end
R7: ch2, turn, (5bpdc, fpdc, 5bpdc) rep ( ) until end
R8: ch2, turn, hdc in each stitch across
