Welcome to the wonderful world of crochet! With this step-by-step guide, you will be ready to create a beautiful piece – a crochet baby blanket – that will warm hearts and little bodies in a special way. Let’s start!
Choose three colors of medium weight yarn (worsted weight) that go well together.
Choose a needle compatible with the chosen yarn.
To cut wires as needed.
To hide loose ends at the end of the work.
Step 1: Preparation
Choice of Colors:
Select your three favorite colors. It can be a soft and delicate combination or something more vibrant and bold, depending on your taste and the effect you want to achieve.
Step 2: Start of Work
Make a Slip Knot:
Start with one of the colors and make a slip knot.
Make a base chain with a number of stitches that are multiples of 3 + 2. This will ensure your pattern is balanced.
Step 3: Basic Crochet
Chain 3 (which counts as the first double crochet) and then double crochet in the fourth stitch from the hook. Continue making double crochets until the end of the row.
At the end of each row, change to the next color of yarn and make the initial 3 chains.
High point in Correntinhas:
Turn the work and double crochet into the first stitch. Continue with double crochets to the end of the row, alternating colors as desired.
Step 4: Tricolor Fill
Crochet in Reverse Directions:
When you reach the end of a row, instead of cutting the thread, simply turn the work over and start the next row in the opposite direction.
When changing directions, be sure to start the row with the opposite color to the one you ended in the previous row. This will create a unique and interesting tricolor fill pattern.
Step 5: Repeat and Finish
Repeat the Steps:
Continue alternating between rows in opposite directions, changing colors with each row, until you reach the desired size of the baby blanket.
When finished, cut the threads and use a tapestry needle to hide any loose ends.
Now you have in your hands not only a crochet baby blanket, but also the rewarding experience of creating something with your own hands. Remember that crochet is a form of art and expression, so have fun with the process and let your creativity flow!
