Soft Cherry Steps Baby Blanket ~

Crochet Pattern

I designed the Soft Cherry Steps Baby Blanket for my Charity, Crafting A Rainbow Of Hope. The blanket is simple and a quick pattern to work up if you are in need of a baby shower or welcoming gift.  It will look great in solids, prints, strips or as a stash buster where you change colors every row or every few rows.  It is a great item to add to your charity donations.

Instructions

Chain 6

Row 1: Dc in the 4th chain from the hook and in the next 2 chains. Turn (1 block made)

Row 2:  Chain 6, dc in the 4th chain from the hook and in the next 2 chains,
work (ch 3, 3 dc) in the chain-3 space of the previous row. Turn (2 blocks made)

Row 3: Chain 6, dc in the 4th chain from the hook and in the next 2 chains,
work (ch 3, 3 dc) in next chain-3 space of the previous row,
repeat twice. Turn (3 blocks made)

Row 4: Chain 6, dc in the 4th chain from the hook and in the next 2 chains,
work (ch 3, 3 dc) in next chain-3 space of the previous row,
repeat 3 times. Turn (4 blocks made)

Rows 5–36: Continue working in this manner,
increasing 1 block on each row until there are 36 blocks across which will also give you 36 blocks in height.

Now work in decreasing rows as follows:

Row 37: Slip Stitch across the first 3 dc,
* work (slip stitch, ch 3, 3 dc) all in the next ch-3 space of the previous row,
repeat from * to the last ch-3 space;
slip stitch in the last space. Turn, DO NOT make a block in the last space. (35 blocks made)

Repeat Row 37 for decreasing block pattern until 1 block is worked on last row.

Do not Fasten off Continue with Edging.

Edging

Working between the blocks, Chain 1, sc in the same stitch,
* work shell (see special stitches) in the next space between blocks,
sc in the next space between blocks, * repeat from * to * to corner,
work shell in the corner stitch, repeat from * to * to the next corner,
work shell in the corner stitch, repeat on the other 2 sides;
join with a slip stitch in the top of sc. (18 sc on each side, 17 shells each side and 4 corner shells)

Happy Hookin!
