FREE Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hues Sampler Baby Blanket

FREE Crochet Tutorial: Happy Hues Sampler Baby Blanket

Last week, we took a tour of my new nursery that my mom and I set up. (see it here!!) It was so much fun to see the colors come to life, the artwork get hung, and the crib readied for baby’s arrival.

Today, I am introducing the Happy Hues Sampler Baby Blanket. This luxurious blanket was made in the hues of my nursery. Yours can be made in any combo of color or why not use this project for a great stash buster!? You will love this project so much!

I have provided you instructions on how to expand the size of this blanket to fit any size bed. Whether it be all colorful or just a combination of tones that fit the decor of a specific room, this blanket will make the perfect addition to any home or nursery. Join me and get started today!

Pattern:

Designed by Nadia Fuad
You may sell items made from my pattern, but please reference my website YARNutopia.com.
Please do not copy, sell, and/or post this pattern and claim it as your own.

Materials:

Red Heart Super Saver Yarns in all different colors (Denim, Charcoal, Dusty Grey, White, Country Blue)
I used 1 ball of each with an extra ball of yarn for the border. (6 skeins total–2,000 yards of yarn)
Size I-5.50mm Crochet Hook
Yarn Needle
Scissors

NOTES:
-You can make this blanket any size. Use the Afghan Size Guide in this Blog Post
-The measurements for my blanket came out to be approximately 45 inches X 50 Inches
-You can make this blanket any size by making your beginning chain an even number.
-You can use any colors you want. I used a Worsted Weight, Size 4 Medium Yarn but you can use any Double Knitting Yarn or any Aran Yarn as well.
-This blanket took me approximately 3 days to complete.
-You do not have to change color so often, but sewing in those pesky ends is a nightmare. Be sure to sew them in as you go, but if you are not changing color as often as I do in the video tutorial, you can carry your yarn up the rows on the sides because when we make our border, we cover the sides anyway.
-Ch 3 at the beginning of a row counts as a stitch unless otherwise specified (See video tutorial for explanation, especially when working treble crochet rows)
-If you do not have the same exact stitch count as me (if you are off by a few stitches, do not worry about it, it is OK, the border will hide any imperfections on the edges)

Special stitches:
Ch(s): chain(s)
YO: Yarn Over
St(s): Stitch(es)
Sl st: slip stitch
SK: Skip
SC: Single Crochet
HDC: Half-Double Crochet
DC: Double Crochet
TR: Treble Crochet
PS: Puff Stitch: *YO, insert hook into st, YO, pull through, repeat from * until you have 7 loops on your hook. YO pull through all 7 loops.
