Calm Dreams Baby Blanket

Heirloom Crochet Pattern by Malloo

Free crochet pattern: Calm Dreams Baby Blanket by Malloo in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn for Underground Crafter

I always loved baby blankets as a project. Even before I had a baby to use them. It is a great way to practice new stitches, use leftover yarn, keep your interest long enough — but not so long that you want to get it over with.

I have many of them — much more than my baby will ever be able to use –and, I don’t think I will stop making them. New babies always come in our family and there is always the donation option.

Free crochet pattern: Calm Dreams Baby Blanket by Malloo in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn for Underground Crafter

If you need to know one thing about me is that I love texture. And this blanket is full of it. From the wavy look to the bobbles on the trim.

This blanket is worked sideways. That means your rows are the length of the blanket not the width. If you would like to make this blanket bigger just add 14 stitches (in the initial chain only) as many times as you like until you are satisfied with the length of your blanket. As for the width, just keep adding rows until you reach the desired result.

You can pretty much make this blanket in any size you like. And since 14 stitches is 4 inches you will be adding 4 inches of length for each repeat.

Are you ready to dive into the pattern?

Free crochet pattern: Calm Dreams Baby Blanket by Malloo in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn for Underground Crafter

You will need:

  • Aran weight yarn (I used Paintbox Cotton Aran, 11 skeins of the main color and ½ a skein for the edging)
  • US I/5.50 mm, US J/6.00 mm crochet hook
  • Yarn needle
  • Scissors

Gauge:

  • 14 st and 12 rows = 4″ (10 cm) in pattern

Yardage:

  • 930-950 m (1017- 1038 yds) of Color A
  • 40-50 m (43-54) of Color B

Dimensions:

  • 30″x35″ (76×89 cm)

Abbreviations:

  • ch: chain
  • dc: double crochet
  • Fpsc: front post single crochet (see Special stitches and tutorial, below)
  • hdc: half double crochet
  • Psc: picot single crochet (see Special stitches, below)
  • R: row
  • sc: single crochet
  • tr: treble crochet

Notes:

1. The chain in the beginning of every row does NOT count as a stitch.
2. The pattern is written in standard US terms.
3. Color A is Granite Grey (607) and Color B is Mustard Yellow (624) in Paintbox Cotton Aran yarn.

Special stitches and tutorial: FPsc

  • In all even rows you will be doing a Fpsc. Although it is technically a front post single crochet you will not be going around the post but near the top, just underneath the v. I have a couple of pictures for you to show you the correct placement of the Fpsc as well as how to perform them.
  • The first Fpsc will be around the first stitch and not the initial chain.
Free crochet pattern: Calm Dreams Baby Blanket by Malloo in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn for Underground Crafter
  • The last Fpsc of the row will be around the initial chain. Can you see the crochet hook that is sticking out of the row?
Free crochet pattern: Calm Dreams Baby Blanket by Malloo in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn for Underground Crafter
  • This way your blanket will have straight edges!

Special stitches: Psc

  • Insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, * yarn over and pull through one loop on your hook** repeat from * to ** 2 more times. Repeat once more but this time pull through all loops (2) on your hook.
  • This is called a picot sc. If you add a sc in the next stitch it is called the granule stitch. This combination of sc and Psc is what we are going to use as a trim for our blanket.

Sweet Honeycomb Super Wrap

Crochet Pattern by Stitch in Progress

Free crochet pattern: Sweet Honeycomb Super Wrap in Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran yarn by Stitch in Progress for Underground Crafter | smiling model wearing shawl against tree background

Hello Underground Crafters! I am so excited to share this super wrap with you!

It really is super…super stylish, super long, and super fun to crochet!

I love, love, love to make patterns that are a repeat of something geometric and this honeycomb trellis stitch is one of my favorites. It is very easy and looks simply stunning when worked with a a stiff cotton yarn or a bulky yarn. The key is to use something sturdy that will hold the stitches wide open.

I used the Paintbox Yarns Cotton Aran generously supplied by LoveCrochet and when I saw all those fun summer colors in one pack of 10 balls, I was all in!

At Stitch In Progress, I focus on Learn More, Make More, so I usually provide a tutorial for all the stitches that I learn and use. If you would like to see how this stitch pattern is created, you can check out my honeycomb trellis stitch tutorial post for the honeycomb trellis stitch pattern.

Crochet Pattern: Bonfire Fringe Scarf

Free crochet pattern: Bonfire Fringe Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn by Underground CrafterThe Bonfire Fringe Scarf Free is a free crochet pattern for a striped, ripple scarf. It’s made using simple increases and decreases and there’s no need to weave in ends! Since it’s crocheted from side to side, the yarn tails are part of the fringe. This easy peasy scarf makes a great accessory for yourself or to gift. And, I’m even sharing a great tip for trimming your fringe to perfection.

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links. Materials for the sample were generously provided by LoveCrochet/Paintbox Yarns and Fiskars.

Do you ever come across a crafting tip or hack and it’s so amazing, but also so simple, that you don’t understand how you have lived your life to this point without knowing about it? Well, a few weeks back this helpful video tutorial for cutting fringe with a rotary cutter by One Dog Woof showed up in my Facebook feed. Mind blown! How had I never done this before? I was practically kicking myself. I knew I had to try it out, especially since the nice folks at Fiskars had just sent me their Folding Cutting Mat, Folding Ruler, and RazorEdge Softgrip Fabric Shears for some upcoming sewing projects.

Fiskars Folding Ruler and Cutting Mat with Razor Edge via Underground CrafterThese are perfect for me because I do a lot of crafting on the go, and they fold up for carrying (and, in the case of the scissors, sheath for safety) and then expand to full size once you get to your crafting destination. The picture below also includes my trusty Fiskars 45 mm Easy Change Ergo Control Rotary Cutter.

Fiskars Folding Ruler and Cutting Mat with Razor Edge via Underground CrafterNow that I had my rotary cutter and mat set up, I went digging into my yarn stash for the perfect colors for a project with fringe. I had several skeins of Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn, a soft acrylic yarn, on hand. Confession: These skeins were supposed to be for a totally different project, but now all I could think of was a scarf with fringe and I loved the color combination!

Free crochet pattern: Bonfire Fringe Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn by Underground Crafter | Detail of striped crochet ripple patternRipple patterns are so fun to crochet and they look great with fringe, so I searched for a simple ripple pattern with no complicated decreases in my stitch guide collection. I came across this stitch pattern and I love how it turned out with the colors. There’s a great, earthy look to it and it’s a very unisex color combination.

Free crochet pattern: Bonfire Fringe Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn by Underground Crafter | striped ripple scarf with fringe on fabricThe best part of this scarf is that, because it’s crocheted side to side, you don’t have to weave in any ends. That’s right, not a single yarn tail gets woven in. They all end up in the fringe.

Free crochet pattern: Bonfire Fringe Scarf in Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky yarn by Underground Crafter | striped crochet ripple scarf with fringe on hangerThis makes it the Bonfire Fringe Scarf a pretty quick project. So, how exactly did I trim my fringe to perfection? I used ChiWei’s hack of cutting it with my rotary cutter. It makes the fringe edges so much easier to deal with. If you have a rotary cutter, cutting mat, and quilting ruler on hand, I highly recommend using this method. It’s much faster than the dreaded scissor trim that I usually do.

  • Prepare 18 groups of fringe (one group for each row on each side of scarf) as follows:
  • Cut 12” (30.5 cm) pieces of CA, CB, and CC (or add approximately 1”/2.5 cm to your planned final length of fringe and then double that number).
  • Fold each group of 3 strands of yarn in half.
  • Attach fringe using crochet hook at end of each row, incorporating hanging yarn tail from that row into group. See Pattern Notes for detailed photo tutorial for attaching fringe.
  • Repeat for each row on each side of scarf.
  • Trim fringe to approximately 5” (13 cm). I used the rotary cutter method. See Pattern Notes for video tutorial for trimming fringe with rotary cutter.
