Textures and Tassels Blanket Week 37
Crochet Pattern by Underground Crafter
Join motifs and rows together and add a decorative edge.
The Textures and Tassels Blanket is a mystery crochet along for a throw-sized blanket worked in a combination of motifs and rows. Borders are crocheted in the round and the blanket is finished off with tassels. (Optional, of course, if you don’t like tassels.) New clues will be released on Fridays through December 10, 2021.
- Throw Blanket.
- Lion Brand Heartland yarn (Solids: 100% acrylic, 5 oz/142 g, 251 yd/230 m; Tweeds: 94% acrylic/6% rayon, 4 oz/113 g, 200 yd/183 m): 14 skeins in your choice of colors, or approximately 3,320 yards/3,036 meters in any medium weight yarn.
- Clover Amour US Size I-9/5.5 mm crochet hook, or size that matches gauge or you prefer using with medium weight yarn.
- Clover Tassel Maker in Large or Small, or the bundle of both sizes (optional, but very helpful if you plan to finish your blanket with tassels).
- Clover Quick Locking Stitch Marker set (optional, but helpful for marking the front and holding pieces together for seaming).
- Clover Chibi yarn needle.
- See individual clues for gauge information.
Textures and Tassels Blanket Pattern Notes
- The Textures and Tassels Blanket Blanket is constructed using a combination of motifs and rows. Borders are crocheted in the round. New “clues” will be released on Fridays during 2021.
- I am using 3 colors for my version of the blanket: Lion Brand Heartland yarn in 178 Pinnacles (CA), 195 Biscayne (CB), and 350 Mount Rainier Tweed (CC). This is a “dye lot” yarn, so be sure to get enough of each color you plan to use so that the colors match. If you substitute a “no dye lot” yarn, the dyes are consistent between batches so you can order additional yarn as needed and the colors will match.
- You can use as many or as few colors as you like for your version. I recommend at least 2 colors to show certain stitch patterns.
- Whenever possible, I recommend crocheting over your yarn tails as you work. Sometimes, a stitch pattern will be too lacy to effectively crochet over your yarn tails. In that case, I recommend weaving in ends.
- Fiber Flux has a helpful video tutorial for crocheting over your yarn tails as you work here.
- Stitches n Scraps has helpful video and photo tutorials for 3 ways of weaving in ends here. I use the yarn (tapestry) needle method.
- Because the border will be crocheted in the round over the unworked sides of rows, when changing colors often you can carry your yarn tails up the side of your work. AllFreeCrochet has a helpful video tutorial for carrying your yarn tails up the side of your work here.
- Color changes are only suggestions. You are welcome to change colors more or less often.
Abbreviations Used in This Pattern
- BL – back loop only – Lion Brand has a helpful video tutorial for identifying the back loop here.
- bob – 3-repeat bobble – [Yo, insert hook into st, yo and draw up a loop, yo and draw through 2 loops] 3 times in the same st, yo and draw through all 4 loops on hook. A video tutorial for this stitch is available below.
- If you can’t see the bobble video above, click here to watch it on Instagram.
- CC – Color C
- ch – chain
- sc – single crochet
- sl st – slip stitch
- sp – space
- st(s) – stitch(es)
- yo – yarn over
- *Repeat instructions after asterisk as indicated.
-  Repeat instructions between brackets as indicated.
Notes for Part 37
- Gauge: Row = 48” (122 cm) wide; or approximately 13.5 sts = 4” (10 cm) in pattern.
- Ch 1 at beginning of Rows and sl st joins do not count as a stitches.
- Color changes are only suggestions. You are welcome to change colors more or less often. For this section, my Color C is Lion Brand Heartland yarn in 350 Mount Rainier Tweed.
Assemble Squares 31-36
- Using long yarn tails from end of final round, join squares from Parts 31-36 with a slip stitch seam (see below for video) as follows:
- Position Square 31 and Square 32 with Right Sides together. On Wrong Sides, start at corner ch-2 sp. Working through both layers, join 1 side with a slip stitch seam through outer loops of stitches across square, finishing in next ch-2 sp, evenly working 26 slip stitches across to join.
- Position Square 33 on Square 32 with Right Sides together. Join as for previous squares.
- Position Square 34 on Square 33 with Right Sides together. Join as for previous squares.
- Position Square 35 on Square 34 with Right Sides together. Join as for previous squares.
- Position Square 36 on Square 35 with Right Sides together. Join as for previous squares.
- If you can’t see the video for the slip stitch seam above, click here to watch it on Facebook.
Join Row of Squares 31-36 to Row from Part 30
- See below for an assembly diagram.
- Using CC, join Row of Squares 31-36 to Part 30 with a slip stitch seam (see video tutorial above) as follows:
- Position Row of Squares 31-36 to last Row of Part 30 with Right Sides together. On Wrong Sides, start at corner ch-2 sp. Evenly work 160 slip stitches across as follows: [Join with 27 sl st across next square, join with 26 sl st across next square] twice, [join with 27 sl st across next square] twice.
- After completing this week’s section (below), your blanket should look like the assembly diagram above.
Alternating Bobbles (worked over any multiple of 4 sts)
- With Right Side facing up, join CC with sl st to corner ch-2 sp.
- Row 1: (Right Side) Ch 1, sc in ch-2 sp, *scBL 38 times across next square,** sc in next 2 ch-2 sp; repeat from * across, ending last repeat after **, sc in last ch-2 sp. (160 sts)
- Row 2: Turn, ch 1, sc in first 3 sts, *bob in next st, sc in next 3 sts; repeat from * across to last st, sc in final st.
