Monique is one of my favorite blanket patterns to make for The Linus Connection.
It’s easy, relatively fast, works well with just about any yarn and can be adapted to be a smaller or larger size. Make it with all one color or use up your leftovers!
I’m not including yarn amounts here because it really varies on what size you’d like to make and what kind of yarn you choose. The one shown is made with Caron Simply Soft.
- The yarn of your choice, I prefer a soft worsted. Please note that the amount will vary depending on your choices.
- I hook – this is my preference, but it works with any size hook from G up to about a J, depending on yarn weight.
Ch 122 (or any multiple of 3 + 2)
Row 1: 1 hdc into third ch from hook, skip 1 st *(1sc, ch 1, 1 dc) in next st, sk 2 sts*, rep *to*, end of row, 1 sc in last st, ch 2, turn.
Row 2: Work (1 sc, ch 1, 1 dc) into each chain space across, ending with a sc in the top of the final ch 2 from the previous row. Ch 2, turn.
Rep row 2 until blanket is the size of your choice.
For edging, continue pattern in ch sp around remaining 3 sides. Join with sl stitch and finish off.
