Earlier I crocheted a blanket for my sister with this stitch. If you like it, you can read it HERE. However, I now crocheted one for my own coming baby. I am calculated at 1 November! And time flies, because ‘suddenly’ I have already arrived at the last trimester of my pregnancy!
This baby blanket is now ready: nice on time so that I can crochet even more. If you want to make this blanket with this format, you can! I tell you how you can crochet this blanket.
At the beginning of this year – I only knew that I was pregnant, I bought -specially for a baby blanket, yarn at Wolplein. I knew that I mainly wanted to work with one color and I wanted something different. For example, I love those orange hues and I love autumn: because of the weather and the colors! And since November 1 is still in the middle of autumn, I can work in all kinds of autumn colors! At that time I did not know what the gender of the baby is, now I do: a girl! But I think this color is very beautiful for our upcoming baby girl!

The stitch pattern is a multiple of 3 stabbing. I used the hook terms from the american english!
Round 1: Make a chain of 120. (120ch.) (More or less, just how large the blanket must be.)The stabbing number divisible by three
Round 2: Crochet 2 double crochet (2 dc) in 3rd chainstitch from the hook. #Skip 2 chainstitch , crochet in the next chainstitch 1 single crochet (1sc) and 2 double crochet (2dc) #
Repeat #-# Finish round with skipping two chainstitch and hook in the last chainstitch one single crochet (1sc). Crochet 2 chainstitch (2ch) ( equal to a single crochet) turn around.
Round 3: Crochet 2 double crochet (2dc) in the first sc (single crochet). #Skip 2 dc (double crochet) , work 1 single crochet (1sc) and 2 double crochet (2dc) in the following single crochet (sc) #
Repeat #-# Finish with 1sc (single crochet) in the top of the 2 chainstitch from previous row. Repeat this row until the desired size . Tie-off.
As a ‘finishing touch’ I also crocheted the same stitch. Pay attention to where you stick on the sides: that there is enough space between the stitch groups, otherwise it will wrinkle / pull.
