Glorious Springtime Blanket Crochet Pattern

The glorious springtime blanket is another version of the new springtime soft shells crochet blanket pattern. Change up the crochet edge to create a completely different look. This pattern also uses 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.

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.

The foundational row uses the No Chain Double Crochet rather than a chain of stitches and row of double crochet. For your convenience, here is a video on the No Chain Double Crochet Stitch.

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 52 inches wide X 66 inches long.

One skein of yarn yielded a section 52 inches wide X 7 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 195 + 7 stitches, which equals 202 stitches. Adjust the length by just stopping on after any one of the four row repeats.

Finishing the Crochet Borders

This first found for the crochet edge is done in Chartreuse yarn. This round is completed for both the Springtime Soft Shells Crochet Blanket and the Glorious Springtime Blanket. However, it is the ending row for the all green Springtime Soft Shells Blanket. The rest of the instructions for the Glorious Springtime Blanket are a bit further down yet.

Since the pattern started off with the no chain double crochet, one of the sides of the border is already complete. Therefore, start the yarn on the top of one of the corners. I started on the bottom right as I am right handed and will be working from right to the left. The first photo below shows the corner where I started the yarn.

Complete a Double Crochet for each stitch along the three sides without a border. For the corners, double crochet 3 times in the corner stitch. This will help ease the stitches around the corner and the blanket will lay flat. Join to the initial no chain double crochet with a SL ST. Weave in all yarn ends until they are snug. Cut off excess yarn.

Round 4:

Change back to the Chocolate yarn. Starting in a corner, work the chainless DC into the Stitch just to the left of the corner center Stitch. In the same ST, complete a DC, CH 1, 2 DC, SK 4. [In the next ST work 2 DC V Stitch, SK 4]. Repeat between [ ] all the way around. Working Work 2 of the 2 DC V Stitch in each corner. End with a SL ST into the top ST of the first chainless Dc.

Round 5:

Using the Chartreuse yarn, starting in the Ch 1 ST of any of the 2 DC V Stitches, work a SC, [SK 2 STs, V Stitch into the CH 1 SP space between 2 DC – V Stitch of the previous row, CH 1, SK 2 STs, SC into the next CH 1 SP, CH 1]. Repeat between [ ] and join with a SL ST into first SC.

Crocheting a Heart in the Blanket

If you look closely, this crochet edge creates the look of a heart. While this is completed in the chocolate yarn color, it could be worked in a fuchsia or another color that would look like a pink heart and coordinate with the yarn you choose for the rest of the blanket.
