What is Baroque Interior Designs?

According to Design Threads, Baroque Interior designs feature extravagant ornamental features; such as, swags, intricate scroll work, and intense color palettes. Home decor details are made to be in a grand scale, to showcase sophisticated and elegant detail. Additionally, to achieve the extraordinary aura of a baroque interior, the color palette must be intense and almost sensual. While gold is the quintessential color within any Baroque interior, supplementing it with a rich range of shades is a must. Colors such as cobalt, crimson, emerald and plum all play beautifully into a baroque interior’s aesthetics. 

Handmade Baroque Style

If you love modern baroque interior designs and style, this blanket will fit in your home decor nicely. This crochet blanket pattern will be a treasured heirloom for years to come. Use two versions of the v stitch to achieve a beautiful look and feel. This pattern is a four-row repeat to create the luxurious crochet pattern.

Here are is a close up to help see the stitches a bit better.

Crochet Pattern Notes

There are a few things that I want to make sure I point out for successful completion of the crochet pattern.

Each row is starts with a Chainless starting stitch. For instance, use the Chainless Double Crochet rather than a Chain 3. Use the Chainless Single Crochet rather than a Chain 1.

Use Stitch Markers after each four-row repeat. This will help be able to tell what row pattern you are on when you pick your work back up.

Special Stitches Used

V Stitch: (DC, CH 1, DC) into the same stitch

2 DC – V Stitch: (2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC) into the same stitch

Crochet Skill Level

Intermediate

This pattern is a bit more difficult; however, once the initial nine rows are completed, the pattern has a four-row repeat. Therefore, I would place this as an intermediate level.

Crochet Blanket Size

The overall size of the blanket is 37.5 inches wide X 45 inches long.

One skein of yarn yielded a section 37.5 inches wide X 9 inches long.

Changing the Blanket Size

The blanket is worked in multiples of 5 + 7. Therefore, if you would like the blanket wider or narrower, make sure that the foundational row of stitches is divisible by 5. Then add 7. For instance, this blanket is 145 + 7 stitches, which equals 152 stitches. Adjust the length by just stopping on after any one of the four row repeats.

Repeat Crochet Rows

Continue on with the pattern making it as long as you wish by repeating rows 6 – 9. After the initial 9 row set up, I repeated rows 6 – 9 33 times or until the crochet blanket was 64 inches long.

Finishing Border

I tried two different crochet edges on this throw.

Begin with Single Crochet

Starting with the Blackberry Caron Simply Soft Yarn.

Both of the options include a Single Crochet in each Stitch all the way around the blanket. Make sure to Crochet 3 Single Crochet Stitches in each corner. This helps ease the stitches around the corners and they will lay flat.

Second Row of Crochet

Both of the edge options also have the 2 double crochet v stitch. Start in one of the corners with 2 DC. Skip 2, in the next ST, complete 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC. [SK 4, in next ST, complete 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC]. Repeat between [ ] until the next corner.

NOTE: Depending on how many stitches were completed along the edge, you my be a stitch short. Go ahead and adjust the last stitch count so that there is a 2 DC V Stitch 2 stitches away from the corner SC ST.

Continuing On: Once the last 2 DC V Stitch is completed, SK 2 Stitches, complete a 2 DC V Stitch in the corner ST, SK 2 Stitches, complete 2 DC V Stitch. Then carry on with the repeating pattern [SK 4, in next ST, complete 2 DC, CH 1, 2 DC]. Repeat between [ ] until the next corner.

Complete the next two corners. End with 2 DC, CH 1, and a SL ST into the first DC.

First Edging Option

The directions written to this point complete the crochet blanket edging that is shown in the following photo.

Second Edging Option

Complete the directions for the first edging option. There will be one more row added. There is also two options for this last row. One option is to use the Blackberry yarn and the other is to use the Baroque yarn. I have included photos to help you choose your favorite finishing border.

DIRECTIONS: Complete a SC in each stitch. When you come to the CH 1 spaces between the 2 DC stitches, complete SC, CH 3, SC. Repeat this all the way around the blanket. SL ST into first ST. (you are creating a crochet picot stitch).
