Inspiration

The All Together Now Blanket is my second crochet granny stripe blanket (with the first being my Merry Grinchmas Blanket). This time I wanted something simple that I could use Hue Loco's Take Flight Collection with. I wanted something that would be a representation of my family; my husband representing March, April for myself, June for my two youngest boys, August for my oldest son, and October for my daughter. You, of course, can do anything you want for this blanket! Use up scraps, use up stash, buy some full skeins and minis from some favorite dyers...the sky is the limit here! 

Gauge: 14 sts x 12 rows in a 4 x 4 inch (10 cm) swatch. This blanket can be easily adjusted by creating a starting chain with any amount of odd stitches. 

Supplies Needed

  • Crochet Hook: 3.5mm/E. I love using Furls Hooks. They are so comfortable and I don’t get stressed hands or wrists like I once did. Use the code HOOK15 for 15% off. 
  • Yarn: Fingering Weight. Hue Loco Take Flight Collection. 

    The colors you will see in my blanket are from the Hue Loco Take Flight Collection. Alternating between full 100g skeins and the mini skeins. I’ll be using her March, April, June, August, and October sets to represent my husband, myself, and our four children’s birth month birds. This blanket is a free for all. Use up leftovers from your stash, go stash diving, buy minis, etc. There are no rules!

    Since there are no rules, I do not have exact yardage needed. For my blanket I know I’ll use 5 (100g) skeins, plus 5 packs of 20g minis (equaling 1,000g of minis); all in all I’ll use at least 1,500g of yarn, minimum.

Important Notes

Changing Colors: For this pattern you’re going to change your color every row. To do this, you will change colors during your final double crochet stitch. I suggest using the Magic Knot method so that you don’t have ends to weave in!  If you choose not to use the magic knot method and would rather weave in ends and are not familiar with how to change colors, you can check out this video: How to change colors in double crochet

How am I working with colors? I am purchasing one 100g skein that I alternate with a pack of minis. My mini packs have 10 colors each. I use each mini twice before I move on to the next mini. Eventually I run out of the 100g skein and just work a few minis together. There are no rules! Use your minis however you want to. I love alternating every row so that there’s a big mix of colors and you don’t end up with large solid stripes, but you get to choose how you want your blanket to look!

Sizes:

To make your blanket approximately 63 inches, start with the recommended 300 stitches.

To make your blanket approximately 50 inches wide, start with 249 FSC or 250 chains.

To make your blanket approximately 40 inches wide, start with 198 FSC or 199 chains.

 

Pattern

Setup Row: Fsc 300 sts (or ch 301 and sc 300 down the chain). Turn your work.

Row 1: Ch 3, 1 DC in the first st, *sk 2, 3 DC in the next st* Repeat until 3 sts remain. 2 DC in last stitch. Turn your work.

Row 2: Ch 3, *3 DC in the space between your DC clusters from your previous row* Repeat to end. Place 1 DC into the top of your Ch 3 from your previous row. Turn your wok.

Row 3: Ch 3, 1 DC in the first space between your ch 3 and your first DC cluster, *3 DC in the next space between your DC clusters from the previous row* Repeat to end. 1 DC in the space between your previous 3 DC cluster and your ch 3 from the previous row. 1 DC in the top of your Ch 3 from your previous row. Turn your work.

Repeat Rows 2 and 3 until you have reached desired length.

Finishing: Single crochet across the top of all stitches. If you would like to give your sides a border, single crochet evenly down the side, across the bottom of your blanket, up the other side, and once more across the top. If you would like to give your blanket some extra thickness across those two side edges, you can go around the border once more. You could choose to use all one color for the border edges, or you could use leftovers and magic knot them together as you move around the border, giving it a scrappy edge.
