Please forgive me if it is not translated perfectly . I only just beginning.
With a lot of fun, the last period i have made this lovely baby blanket. I’m so happy with it and fortunately my sister too. Because now i can finally show off the baby blanket, because the daughter of my sister is born!
 Typical was this stitch processed in a baby cape, found on the blog of “Steek voor Steek”.
This is the link of the baby cape.
I was going to make the baby cape.
But in conversation with my sister we thought that a crib blanket lasts longer .
Then we will be more able to use..!
Here in the Netherlands we have a store called ‘de Zeeman’. There they sell a wool called ‘ soft’ wool. I used this wool three shades in a pastel shade. And three of these colors , I started crocheting together with: bright pink, mint and lilac/purple. The blanket is remarkably light, but all the colors you see again! So sweet and soft!
12 balls soft wool in three soft colors
    • 3 scoops of mint
    • 3 scoops Pink
    • 3 scoops lilac / purple
    • Crochet hook 8mm (set up with hook 10mm)
The stitch pattern is a multiple of 3 stabbing. I used the hook terms from the american english!

Round 1: Make a chain of 93 chainstitch. (93ch.)
(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 hooked around the same pitch, watch out for yourself where you put on the sides, so that there is enough space between the stabbing groups, otherwise he wrinkling/ pull.
I hope you have as much fun as I had with crocheting this blanket!



  1. Hallo, wat een supermooi dekentje is dit! Nog een vraag hierover: op de foto zie ik naald 6, het patroon geeft naald 8 (en opzet 10) aan. Heeft u echt naald 8 gebruikt? Alvast bedankt.

    • Heel oplettend van je! Deze foto heb ik eerder gemaakt dan het dekentje klaar was: ik heb het deken uitgehaald en later op een grotere naald opnieuw begonnen! Vandaar dus een kleinere naald op de foto!
      Ja, echt naald dus! Maar ik ben wel echt een ‘strakke’ haakster, dat is uiteindelijk ook persoonlijk!
