The Bobbles and Stripes Blanket

October 3, 2020

 


In late June, I began to get the itch for autumn - I know, a bit too early! I started sifting through my yarn stash and discovered that I had just the right colors to create a fall-themed crochet blanket filled with offset bobbles and stripes. (The original name for this blanket was "The Harvest Berries Blanket," but I quickly realized this pattern would be gorgeous using any colors - including a stunning monochromatic palette!)




About the Pattern

This cozy blanket is made from alternating rows of double bobble rows, single bobble rows, and simple stitches to create a beautifully textured pattern. I used Caron Simply Soft yarn from Yarnspirations, but I encourage you to experiment with different yarns to find one that fits your personal style! If you're searching for yarns similar to Caron Simply Soft, I highly recommend exploring Yarn Sub, a free and independent tool to help crocheters find the perfect yarn substitutes! The blanket is finished with a simple border along all four sides, complemented by a jumbo multicolored tassel on each corner.


This pattern uses a variety of basic stitches and easy color changes, ideal for an enthusiastic beginner! And because I love creating flexible blanket designs, this pattern includes instructions for making it any size! The finished baby blanket featured in this post (and in the pattern's photos) measures 37.5" x 38.5".



What's in the pattern?

In this PDF pattern, you'll find:

  • A detailed 63-page tutorial with 116 step-by-step color photos that teach you exactly how to crochet this blanket (including photos showing you where to place your hook and stitch!)
  • Instructions provided for the body of the blanket, border, tassels, and fastening off/weaving in all yarn tails
  • A comprehensive supply list
  • Tips that are written as if I'm teaching a good friend, so you'll encounter minimal abbreviations or crochet jargon
  • Instructions written in US terms


What stitches should I know?

Although this pattern's instructions are very detailed, I recommend you be familiar with the following stitches that are used in this blanket:

  • Foundation chain stitches
  • Slip stitches
  • Single crochet stitches
  • Half double crochet stitches
  • Double crochet stitches


Am I able to sell items I make from this pattern?

Please also use your own photos to advertise products made for sale. I strongly (but politely!) request that you give credit to my shop for the pattern and post a link if you sell online.
