Little Treasure Baby Blanket Pattern.

I always like to be working on a baby blanket along with whatever I'm working on at the time, they are great portable projects, ideal for practising crochet stitches and great for stash-busting too,  this is my latest using a very easy scallop stitch which I have used and loved in the past because it's so quick and easy.


Little Treasure Baby Blanket

Abbreviations
The pattern is written in UK terminology
ch - chain
tr - treble   (dtr double treble US)
dc - double crochet  ( sc single crochet US)
sk - skip
Measurements
My blanket is Preemie size measuring 20 inches by 20 but can be easily adjusted by adding multiples of 6 + 1 for the starting chain.

Materials 
4 mm hook
Double Knit yarn this is what I used 3 random balls of baby wool I found in my stash...


in shades of lemon, mint and white with a sprinkling of mint and lemon it took 150 grams.

Tension 

Four shell groups = 10cms
11 rows = 10cms

Pattern
The pattern consists of  clusters of 4 tr with a dc between.  The rows end with a dc and start with a 2ch.

Ch 97 loosely
1st row - 2tr in 4th ch from hook, sk 2 ch, dc in next ch, *4tr in next ch, sk 2 ch, dc in next ch* rep from * to * to end, 2 ch turn.

2nd row - 2tr in 1st dc, *dc in between 2nd and 3rd tr, 4tr cluster in next dc* rep from * to * ending with dc in 3rd starting chain.

Repeat 2nd row until the blanket is as long as you wish my blanket has 58 rows and measures 20 inches including the border.


Border

Dc evenly all around blanket, 3dc in each corner, 

Use same pattern for border but leave only 1 st between each cluster and each dc placing a cluster in 2nd dc of each corner.

  10. I feel the exact same way, if I have a big project going then I always have something small and portable that I can take with me when traveling. Love those colors and the pattern is pretty too. Thank you for sharing this with us and for having the pattern in your post.
