Vesi Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

 

 


I made this blanket for one of my best friends – Vesi. She bought an appartment 3 years ago and moved in about a month ago. I decided to make her a blanket for a housewarming gift 😉
It is made with single crochets and double crochet, and it has a bit of texture due to yarn hold with 3 strands. It can be done with a solid color bulky weight yarn, of course.




Materials:

For a 110 cm x125cm blanket (with border)

Main colour:
Alize Superlana Long Batik – 3 balls, 600 m
Contrast colour:
Nako Luks Minos – 440 gr, 1480 m (6 balls, about 140 gr left), held with 3 strands

1 crochet hook – 8mm, size L

Notions:

sc = single crochet
dc= double crochet

sl st = slip stitch
MC = main colour
CC= contrast colour

Pattern:

If you’re using the recommended or similar yarns. when you see CC, hold 3 strands of the CC yarn. If you’re using a bulky weight for CC, you do not need to hold 3 strands.
