You’ll need:

2 balls of Caron One Pound, 454g/16 oz, 742 m/812 yds in Soft Sage color;

Crochet hook 3.

 

Size: option 1: Baby Blanket

Baby blanket is 36” x 36”. Beautifully textured baby blanket with a simple single crochet border. 

Option 2: Blanket with Middle Side Hood

Baby blanket is 36” x 36”. Hood is positioned in the middle that is 8” tall x 15” across the side. It is created as an extension and sewn at top to close the hood. 

To change the size of the blanket: the quantity of sts is multiple 2.

 

Special Stitches

Clusters: Yarn over, insert hook into assigned stitch, yarn over and pull through stitch, yarn over pull through 2 loops, hold remaining on hook. *Yarn over, go into same assigned stitch, yarn over and pull through stitch, yarn over and pull through 2 loops. Holding remaining on hook. Repeat from * twice more. 5 loops on hook. Yarn over, pull through all 5 loops.

Rep rows 3 – 12 (7 more times). Then row 3 once. Fasten off. 

Main baby blanket is complete. If you prefer no hood, proceed to blanket border next. If you prefer a hood, do the hood first. 

 

Blanket Border

Proceed directly to the border for the regular baby blanket or corner hood style. 

Rnd 1: With RS facing up, join to a corner. Ch 1, 3 sc in corner st. Evenly space sc across top and sides of the blanket, placing 3 sc in each corner. Join with sl st to beg sc. Fasten off. 

 

Middle Hood Version

The hood will already be attached to the blanket. You will do the sc evenly spaced around the blanket with 3 sc in each corner. Include the hood when going around the blanket. 

 

Option 2 – Middle Hood

The middle hood is built up as a rectangle directly on the blanket. We have to maintain the stitch look. At the end, we will fold the top of the new rectangle in half and sew shut to form the hood. 

Locate the centre of side. 

Fold blanket in half and place stitch marker on closest cluster to the centre point. 

Starting with next cluster, count 10 clusters over and mark ch 1 space after it. Then go back to centre stitch marker and count 10 clusters over and mark the ch 1 space after it. 

You should have 21 clusters between the two outside stitch markers in approx the centre of the blanket. This is where the hood will appear. 

The first row that you will start with has to have the single crochets correctly placed. It looks just like row 4 but with the first and last spaces having 2 sc in each. 

1st row: (RS) With RS facing up, join with sl st to 1st stitch marker ch 1 sp. Ch 1, 2 sc in first ch 1 sp.  1 sc in next cluster, *1 sc in next ch 1 sp, 1 sc in next cluster. Rep from * across. 2 sc in last ch 1 sp where the stitch marker is. You should had an odd number stitch count. 

2nd – 9th rows: Rep rows 5 – 12 from main blanket.

10th – 18 th rows: Rep rows 3 – 11 from main blanket.

Fasten off and proceed to final border.
