Bubbles Baby Blanket

This is the perfect blanket to make when you need a fast gift. It's soft, puffy and warm. Perfect for the car, stroller or whatever. This is great because you can make it however big or small you want, just by changing the starting chain. Works up very quickly, about 3 hours from start to finish. You can use any yarn, hook, etc.

Materials (for this blanket) (29 x 32)

14 ounces worsted weight yarn (I used 7 ounces yellow and 7 ounces white-Pound of Love)
N hook (9.0 mm)
Blunt needle for weaving in edges.

Pattern stitch: sc-2 dc in same stitch

I used two strands of worsted weight yarn held together throughout.

Make chain any length in multiples of 3 plus 2 (Explanation of multiples can be found here)

Row 1:
Chain 62, sc and 2 dc in second chain from hook. *Skip two chains and continue sc/2 dc* across. For last stitch skip two chains and just sc in last stitch, ch 2 and turn

Row 2: 2 dc in sc from last row (first stitch). Do sc, dc, dc in each sc from previous row (so it's basically skip two stitches and sc, dc, dc in next across). End with one sc in top of turning chain and repeat to desired size.

This lays flat, doesn't curl and doesn't need any edging put around it. It does work up beautifully.

I love it! I'm getting started on one right now - only I'm going to make it a bit longer to use as a lapghan for people at this one oncologists office to use while they're sitting and getting chemo treatments. The nurses there said the patients get really cold and need something warm - this will be perfect! Thanks, Deneen!

I accidentally used a smaller size hook, and now my blanket is too small! can you help me know what I could do for a border? I'm not sure what to do along the top edge to make it straight, since now it has the bubbles!

I'm new to crochet, in fact this is my first blanket! but i don't know how you guys did it in 3 hrs! LOL

Deneen said...

Do an row of loose sc around the edge all the way and then perhaps to make it larger, do a round of hdc around and then perhaps a shell stitch around the edge of three dc in one stitch, skip stitch and sc in next, skip stitch, shell and repeat.

can u better explain multiple of 3 plus 2

Deneen said...

Multiples of 3 plus 2 would work like this and only for the starting chain. Make the starting chain the length you wish, as long as it is divisible by 3 (example if you chose 93 for the starting chain, that would make it 3 go into 93 a total of 31 times) and then add two for the turning chain. The following rows, you would just chain two at the end and work as the pattern states.

I hope this helped.

FINALLY! I've been searching for a pattern to make a baby blanket for my new great-niece, due in February. This pattern is IT! Thanks!

LOL my word verification is edtot...the baby's father's name is Ed. :-)

Deneen said...

Kittypie, so glad you like the pattern. Funny about the word verification, must be a sign ;P

Many thanks from the UK for sharing this pattern. I discovered it by chance and I'm delighted with the result.
In the last two weeks I have made two blankets using 2 100g DK balls of yarn each (one white, one coloured)and they came up 18inches x 26inches, perfect car seat/pram/buggy size.
Great value for money gift and quick to produce too....now pending the arrival of two babies to snuggle in them!
Many thanks for your talents,
Rosemary, UK

You are welcome Rosemary!

Just a quick question. Your general instructions say 3x +2, but the starting chain on the detailed instructions say chain 61. Should that be chain 62?

Deneen said...

OMG-it's the first I noticed this or that's it's been pointed out. Yes, you are correct.

Deneen said...

It is correct on the DocStoc document, just a typo here and I'll fix it now. Yikes!
