Blanket crochet tutorial

 


 

CROCHET PATTERN by HILARIA FINA

Oh sea, enormous sea, brave heart
of unequal rhythm,  bad heart,
I am softer than that poor stick
that rots prisoner of your waves.
Alfonsina Storni

 

THE INSPIRATION + DESIGN


Alfonsina has been made using easy crochet stitches inspired by cozy fall vibes. Purpose of this blanket is to curl you up with on cool autumn evenings. The four-colour palette is the right match for seasonal home decor; it seems like the perfect fall option. Some of the other features that I love about this blanket is its softness and that it looks great on either side, it´s definitely reversible!

STITCHES AND TECHNIQUES USED


SLIP KNOT
With about 15 cm of yarn, make a loop. Insert your hook through the center of the loop, draw the end of the yarn through the loop, and pull on the tail to tighten.

CHAIN (ABBREVIATION ch)
YO and pull through loop on hook.

SINGLE CROCHET (abbrev. sc)
Insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (2 loops on your hook), YO again and pull through both loops on the hook in one go.

DOUBLE CROCHET (ABBREVIATION: dc)
YO, insert hook into the stitch, YO and pull the yarn through the stitch (3 loops on your hook), YO and pull through the first 2 loops on the hook in one go (2 loops remain on the hook), YO again and pull through the remaining 2 loops on the hook.

INCREASE (ABBREVIATION: inc)
To work an extra stitch, you simply need to work into the same stitch more than once. Work one stitch as normal. Insert hook into same stitch you’ve just worked and complete another st.

DECREASE
Insert the hook into the first stitch.
YO and pull a loop through the stitch (2 loops on hook). Insert the hook into the second stitch. YO and pull through the stitch (3 loops on hook). Insert the hook into the third stitch. YO and pull through the stitch (4 loops on hook).YO again and pull through all 4 loops on the hook in one go.

CROCHETING INTO THE BACK BUMP OF A CHAIN
Usually you crochet in the right side of the chain. When you turn your chain, you’ll see a small ‘bump’ on the wrong side of each stitch. Insert your hook under this back bump.

CHANGING TO A NEW COLOR
You will change to another colour by joining in the new colour during the final step of the last stitch in the old colour as follows: work the last stitch in the old colour until the last two loops of the stitch are on the hook, then using the new colour, YO and pull through the 2 remaining old colored loops on your hook. The next stitch you make will be the first stitch in the new colour.

JOIN YARN WITH A STANDING SC
Make a slip knot onto hook then insert hook into indicated stitch, YO and pull through stitch (2 loops on hook), YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
