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.

  • You’ll need:
    The yarn of your choice, I prefer a soft worsted, like Caron Simply Soft. Please note that the amount will vary
    depending on your brand choice
    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,
Row 2: 1 hdc in first st, (1 sc, ch 1, 1dc) in ch sp of the previous row. 1 sc in ch 2 space, ch 2, turn.
Rep until blanket is approximately square or slightly rectangular.
For edging, continue pattern in ch sp around remaining 3 sides. Join with sl stitch and finish off.

    Hi, Jennifer — This looks so lovely. So I can gauge how much yarn to use if I go with a size other than worsted, would you please let me know how many skeins of Caron Simply Soft you used for the Monique Baby Blanket shown above and what the finished size was? Thank you so much for sharing! — Anne

    Was looking for a baby blanket to crochet that was ‘different’ and came across this pattern. Want to thank you so much for posting the pattern; I love it. It works up quick. Thank you again!!

    Love, Love, Love this pattern! I’m fairly new to this and found it easy to do. Turned out beautifully – thank you!

    Just starting row 3 and I want to make double sure that no more hdc happen right? Just do what’s between the brackets from now on? I sure do appreciate you sharing this pattern. It seems like it will go quickly. -thank you

      Please clarify on DebW’s question and I am also confused by the “ch2, turn]” occurring within the brackets — assuming that is meant when end of row is reached?

    I am confused about row 2. You say to sc in the chain 2 space. In row 1, I don’t see where you cained two anywhere.

    I apologize to everyone who has unanswered questions about this pattern. I sadly don’t crochet much anymore due to a repetitive stress injury and haven’t been able to get back to it to rework the pattern in several years. I am currently working with a pattern tester to clarify the pattern and make it easier to work up.
