Hi ladies and gentlemen!
Once again we have the pleasure if translating a wonderful pattern from Lucie (Vivre au Crochet) from French to English. The Boho Chic Blanket is a true beauty and we are very happy that Lucie trusted us with translating this beauty!
So without further ado, here comes the pattern!
Free Pattern: Boho Chic Blanket
You will need
- Scrap yarn in various colors (Aran)
- 5 balls of yarn (100g each) in an off white color as the main color (Aran)
- 2 balls of yarn (100g each) of another secondary color for the border (Aran)
- 5 mm crochet hook
Important: You will not turn your work after Row 1. You will need to start at the same side of the work all the time.
Use the border color to crochet a chain. The chain should measure about 150 cm, the stitch count is not important as long as it is a multiple of three, plus two.
Row 1: 1hdc into the third ch from the hook, and then into each ch. (Note: The turning 2ch at the beginning of this row does not count as a stitch!)
Note from Anne: You can also start with a hdc foundation row in the desired length in a multiple of 3. A tutorial for the foundation row can be found here.
Row 2: Using main color and start with the V-stitch. Chain 3, sk 2 st, *(1dc, 1ch, 1dc) into the next st, sk 2st* til the end of the row, (1ch, 1 dc) in the last st. Finish off. Do not turn.
Row 3: Change color to any desired color (expect the main color). You're going to work into every second v stitch from the row below. Ch3, *3hdctog, ch1, 3hdctog into the next v-stitch from the row below, sk 1 v-stitch from the row below, 2ch* repeat till the end of the row, finish with 1hdc into the last ch1 from the row below. Finish off.
Row 4: Change color to any desired color (expect main color). You're going to work into the skipped v-stitches from two rows below and into every v-stitch from the row below. Ch3, *1hdc, ch1, 1hdc into the v-stitch from the row below, 1dc, ch1, 1dc into the v-stitch from two rows below* repeat till the end of the row, 1hdc into the last ch1 from the row below. Finish off.
Rd 1: 1hdc into every stitch around, with 2hdc into the side of a hdc, 3hdc into the side of a dc, and three hdc into every corner.
Rd 2-5: 1sc into every stitch around, with three sc into every corner.
