Rows 1 – 10
Welcome to the Mixed Stitch Blanket Crochet Along, brought to you by Couch Surfer Crochet!
Thanks for joining me on this Crochet Along! Below is the pattern for the first 10 rows.
For this project I chose to use 6 colors, chosen at random throughout the piece.
Stitches used in this pattern are located HERE.
If you would prefer to read a chart, those are available HERE.
To begin this project you will need to determine the number of chains you need to start with.
Begin by chaining any multiple of 24 + 2 (i.e. 98, 122, 146, etc., and be careful not to chain too tightly!). With my worsted weight yarn and my H/8/5mm, I chained 218 total to make my throw about 60″/180cm wide, but you make yours however long you want to! As long as it’s a multiple of 24 plus 2 you’re fine! Double check your starting chain count so you don’t have to start over later.
Start with foundation chain. I chained 218 if you want to make your blanket the same size as mine!
Row 1: hdc in 3rd chain from hook, hdc in all st to end of row, turn
Row 2: ch 2, hdc in all st to end of row, turn
Row 3: ch 2, hdc in all st to end of row, turn
Row 4: ch 3, dc in all st to end of row, turn
Row 5: repeat row 4
Row 6: Ch 3, 2 dc in next st, skip 2 sts, *3 dc in next st, skip 2sts, repeat from * to second to last st, 2 dc in the second last st, and then 1dc in the last st (to make a straighter edge)
Row 7: ch 2, hdc in first 2 st of granny cluster, **3rd hdc goes into the “space” created between clusters.
Row 8: repeat row 6
Row 9: repeat row 7
Row 10: ch 3, dc in all st to end of row, turn
My first 10 rows look like this:
