Free crochet pattern for a versatile but vintage looking granny stripe blanket. Use up your scrap yarn making one of these cozy blankets.
Hey everyone!…………. I wrapped up the pattern for my new owl afghan a couple of days ago and decided to post a new free pattern.
*Update 2/4/15: This pattern was previously posted on the “mypoochiebaby” blog. It has been moved to this new site by Poochie Baby.
This striped granny afghan works great for babies! It is also the perfect lap afghan size for adults. If making this blanket for a baby, you can match the colors to the nursery. The finished blanket measures approximately 31 x 38 inches when complete (if using a three color scheme). You can always modify the width by adding rows. Just work out the number of rows per color before you begin. I usually start and finish the rows with the same color.
When using three colors, you will need one 7 oz. skein of yarn per color. The blanket I decided to make while working out this pattern is made in many different colors though. Needless to say, I have a lot of yarn left over from other projects. A good portion of it has too much left on the skein to be considered SCRAP but it’s not really enough to use on another large project. So, I gathered these skeins to make this blanket. It worked out perfect even though the colors don’t match at all!! I used each color to make three rows on the blanket. I would estimate that it took about 2 oz. of yarn for three row section.
So……….. on to the pattern!
- Three 7 oz. skeins of yarn in your preferred colors or approximately 2 oz. of yarn in each color for every three row section
- H Hook
R1 – DC in the third chain from the hook. Skip two stitches and 3 DC in the next stitch. Skip two stitches and 3 DC in the next stitch. Continue to skip two stitches and 3 DC in the next stitch across the row. When you reach the last three stitches, skip two stitches and 1 DC in the last stitch.
R2 – CH 2 and 2 DC in the same chain space. 3 DC in the next chain space, 3 DC in the next chain space. Continue this pattern across the row until you reach the end. At the end of the row, 1 DC in the last stitch.
