The original version of this pattern was given to me by a friend as a hand written pattern. I lost that pattern for years, but continued to make the blanket, and when I finally found the pattern again, I realized I’d modified it significantly from the original version as I’d tried to work from memory. Oops!
Another name for this blanket could be “stash eater” because it loves yarn! It’s a very simple pattern that makes a squishy, thick and snuggly blanket.
The one pictured will be donated to The Linus Connection.
The blanket works up to be approximately 36″ wide. It looks great with wide or thin stripes, in variegated yarn or solid!
- Worsted Weight Yarn (I used “I Love This Yarn” and a few other random greens I had on hand) – approximately 30 oz.
- J Hook
Shell = (sc in next sc, ch 3, dc) in same st
Row 1: dc in 4th ch from hook, skip next 2 ch, (sc in next ch, ch 3, dc) in same st. [sk next 2 ch ( )] to end of base ch, sc in last ch.
Row 2: ch 3, dc in same st, sk ch 3, (shell) in each sc across, sc in last ch 3 sp.
Repeat Row 2 for desired length.
For edging, continue pattern around by working (shell) in ch 3 spaces along sides and back of foundation row. Finish off.
