The Jacob Blanket - Textured colour block baby blanket pattern...

Hello friends.  Today I have a blanket pattern to share with you that was previously only available in my store.  The blanket features a colour block design that would look great in many colour combinations.  It's such a simple pattern and is suitable for beginners.

60% cotton 40% acrylic

With White ch 117.

Row 1 *Sk2 ch (first ch counts as turning ch), [sc, ch1, dc] in next ch* repeat from *to* until last 3 chs, sk2 chs, hdc in last ch.  Turn.

Row 2 Ch1, *[sc, ch1, dc] in next ch sp* repeat from *to* across, hdc in turning ch from previous row. Turn.

Rows 3-32 repeat row 2, changing colour on last row by pulling new colour through last st of row.

Rows 33-64 With Haze repeat row 2, changing colour on the last row.

Rows 66-96 With Dixie repeat row 2.  Fasten off.

Single Crochet Border

Sc evenly around blanket, changing colours when necessary to keep colour block effect correct.  How many sts you work will depend on your tension.  If your border makes your edges “wavy” you have too many sts, if your sides are “pulling in” you have too few, adjust accordingly.

This is what worked for me…

Along sides 2sc around each hdc post, sc in side of each turning ch, 95sc evenly across top, 95sc evenly across bottom, 1sc in each corner.

  1. Hi, can you tell me the multiply of this to make this larger? Thanks

    1. Hi just make your starting chain as wide as you would like the blanket in multiples of three.

  2. The colours of The Jacob blanket are beautiful and so soft. What a pretty stitch too!

    1. Thanks Sandra, the mix of cotton and acrylic makes for a very soft, snuggly blanket.
