Crochet angel heart baby blanket

Crochet angel heart baby blanket

last year I designed the Angel heart granny square – a slanted winged heart on a solid granny square. I wanted to make a granny square baby blanket but had no time to finish it. Therefore, untill now, I have been able to post this crochet project xD

It’s a reversible crochet baby blanket, flying hearts on the front side and colorful dots on the back side.

Abbreviations

Note: I used chainless starting dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round instead of ch 3/ch 4. There’s another good crochet technique to use is ch 2/ch 3, dc/tr into same stitch ( counted as 1st dc/tr ). In the pattern below you’ll see I simply state dc/tr for every first dc/tr of each round, so just choose your best technique 🙂

  • You can use any hook size for this crochet angel heart baby blanket pattern, just choose a yarn type that matches.
  • This is type of scrap yarn crochet project, fun and colorful. I also modified the square pattern a bit to have a straight flying heart on the square.
  • Each square size: 10 x 10 inches
  • Finished crochet project: 35 x 35 inches ( stroller size )

Special stitch used: 5dc-shell stitch ( 5 dc into same stitch or space )

Skill level: Intermediate

  • Crochet 9 squares with different color themes, now it’s time to join them. There are many ways to join crochet motifs, and you can pick any method you want.
  • As these are solid crochet squares, I decided to use double crochet-2 together seams method which would add one more row to the motifs. I learned it from Joining Crochet Motifs Craftsy class. Then crochet border around with double crochet, too ( using color B yarn- 2dc, ch2, 2dc into each corner ).

After all, time for crochet edging.

With color B yarn, continue from the last stitch of the border round.

R1: ( dc, skip 1 st, dc into next stitch ) repeat around the blanket, sl into first st to join.

R2: sc into 1st stitch, skip next ch1-space, 5 dc- shell stitch into next stitch, skip next ch1-space, ( sc into next stitch,  5 dc- shell stitch into next stitch, skip next ch1-space ) repeat around the blanket, sl into first st to join. ( fasten off, weave in ends )
