Welcome to Craft For The World, the best for you to start amazing and different patterns, ready ?! Here you will ALWAYS be carrying out a project with beautiful different styles, this pattern is just beautiful and with this step by step don’t worry, because it won’t be difficult !! and today we’re going to learn Crochet Crushed Velvet Hearts Blanket, cool too.
Note: Velvet is too short to work, so you’ll need to work on a dotted practice test to make sure you’re using a hook size that keeps your tension tighter than normal and you notice in your mouth that the loops are letting go , this is how you can use a smaller size hook.
Use a medium sized folding crochet hook. He also called HDC among the publications as a way of describing where to insert the hook (the next graphic can be useful). However, the HDC works as usual (YO, insert the hook, lift a pin, YO, remove 3 pins), exactly where the hook is inserted, which is different.
- Size appx. 32 x 30 inches
- 2 balls Bernat Crushed Baby Velvet in Peach Parfait
- 1 ball Bernat Baby Velvet in White
- Size G Hook 4.5 mm
- Tapestry needle
You will be carrying white velvet through work.
Here is a tip on changing colors: use the new color before finishing the wide HDC stitch, when you have three loops on the hook. In order to prevent the wire from being twisted throughout the work, it is always recommended to keep one color in front and one in the back.
String 121 (Repeat pattern is 10 plus 1 if you want to make your blanket different in size. This means that you will multiply any number by 10 and then add 1)
LINE 1: From the third hook chain, work an HDC on each chain. Chain 2 and turn.
LINES 2 – 3: work two lines of wide HDC. Chain 2 and turn at the end of each line. (From now on you will always be inserting your hook between posts.)
ROW 4: * Work 9 wide HDCs with Peach Parfait and then 1 wide blank HDC. Repeat from * until the end of the line. Chain 2 and turn.
Now, from now on, instead of telling the exact count of when to change colors on each line, it will be much easier to visually build your heart instead of counting points. The main reason for this is because wide HDC is being used, so the counts will be different depending on whether you are at the front or the back, and instead of counting the orange dots, it will be easier to focus by placing white dots on both sides of the white dots on the line below.
Here is the graph you want to follow for each heart (the black v’s represent the white dots):
There is also a video tutorial, if you want to see how to create the heart and transport threads along the line.
(Note: the edge of the green blanket in Hannah’s heart is different from the one in the peach.)
Remaining lines: Work 4 lines of wide HDC between each section of hearts (if you want to add more lines before starting a next section of hearts, use an even number).
Weave at all ends before starting the border. Add a ribbed edge of double mesh to double-sided posts. If you’re not sure what a double crochet is in front or behind, here’s a quick video to show you what it is:
Round 1: loop in any corner. Chain one. Work HDC at each point around and 3 HDC at each corner space. Join a point sl at the beginning ch 1.
Round 2: Chain 2 and continue in the same direction. CD around the whole blanket, working 3 CDs in each corner. Join a sliding point to start tea 2.
Round 3: Chain 2 and continue in the same direction. * Work at FPDC (double crochet from the previous post) in the next 2 stitches. Knit the BPDC (double crochet on the back column) in the next 2 stitches. Repeat from * to the corner. Work alternating FPDC and BPDC around the middle column. Start repeating 2 alternative FPDCs in the next 2 DC and 2 BPDC in the next 2 DC. Treat the corners the same way. Finish all sides of the blanket, add a slip stitch to the initial chain 2.
(Note: it may or may not work exactly to approach a corner and have 2 DC front or rear posts in a row. Ok. Working 3 FPDC around the midpoint is the important step.)
Round 4: Repeat line 3.
Weave at all ends and that’s it!
