It’s important because depending what stitch and hook size you use, the blanket size will vary. For instance, if you are using a basic single crochet and make 100 rows, it will be a lot smaller than doing 100 rows with double crochet. Also, if I use smaller hook like an H hook versus a K hook, the blanket would be smaller as well. Bold stripes meet modern texture with the Bold Stripes Blanket!
With 2 new colors , make another section of granny stripes. The striped section of the blanket is a mix of single crochet and half double crochet that you can work in whatever colour sequence you like. For my blanket, a basic double crochet stitch was done with a G hook. I chose a yarn I’ve worked with many times before, that I knew would work perfectly for this project.
Close the round and begin row 3 the same way. Continue this until the end, making only 2 dc sts in the last st of the row. Pull next color through, ch3, turn. I like to crochet over the tail for at least 5 inches before snipping the end of it. At the end of this row, pull your next color through, ch 3, and turn.

So I highly recommend it for this blanket. So if you’re looking for something relaxing to work on after a long day of work, I think you’re going is 638 a bad credit score to love this simple pattern. Block as desired to shape and size. Feel free to add fringe, tassels or a custom border with any remaining yarn.
Would love to see you do a follow along step by step for those who learn by watching another person do it. Maybe a you-tube video, as it makes it great for an add on to your photos on the blog. This is my first attempt at a larger crochet piece. I am a retired tutor of machine knitting so the resizing is a challenge I have had before. For anyone wanting a blanket of approx. 30 inches- 75 to 80 cms, I cast on 132sts to start and this works well with a size 4mm hook.

You may find your edges look a little bumpy or uneven, but remember we’ll be adding a border at the end which will disguise any lumps and bumps rather nicely. Work 1 treble into the top of the very last stitch.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and time. I hunted for days and days on the internet to finally find the perfect pattern/tutorial. I’m considering doing this as a tempetrue blanket and am wondering how long your finished blanket was with the 131 rows and the 3 border rows?
I live for throws, afghans, and blankets. Believe it or not, not all of them are crocheted.. Using a worsted weight yarn like Swish makes this pattern a great candidate for stashbusting!
Whether you use this blanket as a Rainbow Baby blanket or you just want a bit of color; the Rainbow Stripe Blanket is sure to fit your needs. A beautiful blanket with the clearest instructions I have ever seen. I also had trouble with the ripple stitch – row 31 did not work out number wise for me which threw off the number of stitches in row 32 and 33. I just did whatever worked out to get the pattern looking OK but in the end row 31 does not look good at all. Haven’t started yet, but your directions, photos, and diagrams are outstanding.
Each colour stripe of the blanket has a rib section before the next stripe. Then the whole blanket is bordered with a simple edge to finish. Hi there, you can make this blanket bigger by following the multiple, which is 2. So you can make your foundation chain however long you would like, just make sure it’s a multiple of 2. Just make sure that number is an even number. If you would like to change the size of this blanket, all you have to do is follow the multiple of the stitch used in this pattern.
