School Spirit Crocheted Blanket

school spirit crocheted blanket

I recently crocheted a blanket from the book One Skein Baby Projects from LeisureArts.com.  It was an adorable Teddy Bear with a blanket attached to it.  If you would like to see that project, just click HERE.

I really loved the look of the stitch from that blanket, so I decided to make a larger blanket with that same stitch for my daughter.

I used the Icelandic and Grey Heather yarn from Red Heart Yarn.  For some visual interest, I alternated between wide and narrow stripes on the blanket.  I purchased these colors of yarn just because I really liked them when I saw them in the store.  Once I got them home my daughter mentioned that it there was light blue, grey and white in the blanket, which are her school colors . . . so I guess that decided who the blanket was going to be made for.

The basic blanket starts off with a chain stitch, then you single crochet into every stitch for the first row.  For the next row you do a single crochet and a double crochet into the same stitch, skip a stitch, then do a single crochet and a double crochet into the next stitch, skip a stitch . . . continue like this for the whole row.  When you come back for the next pass, you are doing a single crochet and a double crochet into every single crochet stitch for the row before.

The border is simply two rows of single crochet.

I really like that this blanket does not have a lot of open holes in it.  The stitches create a very solid looking blanket that does not have a lot of open spaces, but it is also very soft and flexible.

  1. Do you do a single crochet and double crochet in the same stitch, skip a stitch, then repeat or is it a sc in one stitch, dc in next stitch, etc?

    1. It is a single crochet and a double crochet in the same stitch, skip a stitch . . . repeat that all the way across for the row.

    1. Cathy . . . this blanket is based off a baby blanket pattern I had, which called for 66 chains to start with. I believe I did this one 165 chains, and I believe it was a G size hook.

  2. Your result is really pretty. Thanks for sharing with us at Creatively Crafty Link Party #CCBG tryit-likeit.com/link-party-it
