Hi everybody! Brenna from BrennaAnnHandmade here, with another FREE DIY tutorial in collaboration with HobiumYarns! I’m so excited to bring you all this cute little “Summer Sunset Crochet Baby Blanket” pattern! If you haven’t guessed already, the fun colors chosen to create this blanket were inspired by a summer sunset! ๐Ÿ™‚ Even better, the silky softย Kartopu Organica yarnย used (which I’ve heard in comparable in quality to the SMC Cantina yarns, but SO much more affordable!) is 100% cotton – another reason it’s perfect for warmer weather! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ready to get started? Great, let’s go! ๐Ÿ˜‰

*Finished blanket measures approximately 30″ x 38″

Materials Needed:

2 Skeins each color below (10 skeins total) ofย Kartopu Organica yarn, 100% cotton by HobiumYarns:

– PURPLE (K1709)

– PINK (K244)

– LIGHT PINK (K258)

– LIGHT ORANGE (K154)

A 5mm Crochet Hook

A pair of Scissors

 

Abbreviations:

Ch = chain

St = stitch

Dc = double crochet

 

Directions:

Row 1: Starting with the PURPLE yarn color, ch 120. Put 2 dc in the 3rd ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, dc 3 in the next st. Repeat from * across.

Row 2: Ch 2, turn. *Skip 2, and place 3 dc in the space between the 2 (3 dc) clusters from the previous row as pictured. Repeat from * across, when you reach the end of the row, put 1 dc in the last st.

Row 3: Ch 2, turn. Place 2 dc in the space between the ch 2 and 1st (3 dc) cluster from the previous row. *Skip 2, and place 3 dc in the space between the 2 (3 dc) clusters from the previous row. Repeat from * across. When you reach the end of the row, place 3 dc in the space between the ch 2 and last (3 dc) cluster from the previous row.

Rows 4-15: Repeat Rows 2-3, alternating. When you reach the very last dc of row 15, DO NOT complete the last “pull through” – instead, use the next color (PINK) to pull through and complete that final stitch. Cut the previous yarn color and tie it to the tail of the new yarn color you just attached as pictured in the example photo below.

Rows 16-30: Repeat Rows 2-3, alternating. When you reach the very last dc of row 30, DO NOT complete the last “pull through” – instead, use the next color (LIGHT PINK) to pull through and complete that final stitch. Cut the previous yarn color and tie it to the tail of the new yarn color you just attached.

Rows 31-45: Repeat Rows 2-3, alternating. When you reach the very last dc of row 45, DO NOT complete the last “pull through” – instead, use the next color (LIGHT ORANGE) to pull through and complete that final stitch. Cut the previous yarn color and tie it to the tail of the new yarn color you just attached.

Rows 46-60: Repeat Rows 2-3, alternating. When you reach the very last dc of row 60, DO NOT complete the last “pull through” – instead, use the next color (YELLOW) to pull through and complete that final stitch. Cut the previous yarn color and tie it to the tail of the new yarn color you just attached.

Rows 61-75: Repeat Rows 2-3, alternating.

Cut yarn, weave in all ends and trim yarn.

You’re all finished! ๐Ÿ˜‰
