As you know, I really like to make baby blankets. They can be created as gifts and are also great for donating to hospitals and charities. Most of these crochet blanket models also work as lapghans, so you can give them to retirement homes, not just babies.
That’s really simple and fast crochet blanket. Even a total beginner can make it easily. I used Trinity stitch for the blanket and Alpine stitch for the border. Both of them is just one row repeat.
Video tutorial also can help you. I would like to see and share your finished projects. Please don’t forget to tag me at instagram ( @sirinscrochet).

This pattern is done in multiples of 2. Starting with 6.5mm hook
Row 1. Ch90 and turn, sc in second ch from hook. Insert hook into the same sp as sc st and pull up a loop, pull up a loop from the next 2 sts, now you should have 4 loops on your hook, yo and pull through all loops on your hook, ch1 to close. (insert hook into same sp and pull up a loop, pull up a loop from the next 2 sts, yo and pull through all loops on hook ch1 to close)* repeat across, on the last one don’t close with ch1 do a sc into the last st.
Row 2. Ch1 and turn, 1sc into first st, (insert hook into same sp and pull up a loop, pull up a loop from the next 2 sts, yo and pull through all loops on hook ch1 to close)* repeat across, on the last one don’t close with ch1 do a sc into the last st.
