Free pattern download: Puff Stitch Blanket Edge PDF

Materials:

1 yard of soft micro fleece fabric (cut in half for a baby blanket size)

1/2 ball of Simply Soft or compatible yarn in Main Color (MC)

1/4 ball of Simply Soft or compatible yarn in Additional Color (AC)

1.5 – 2 mm crochet hook (only for row 1)

3.5 – 4 mm crochet hook (for rows 2 – 4)

Preparation:

After you cut micro fleece in half, you will have fraying ends. Run your micro fleece in your dryer for 10 min (toss up cycle) with a fabric softener sheet. The fraying crumbs will fall off and you will have clean edges. No need to sew, hem or punch holes in soft micro fleece fabric.

Legend:

sc = single crochet

ch = chain

puff st = puff stitch = (yarn over, go into a stitch, pull out one yarn) repeat 3 times and you will end up with 6 strands of yarn over your hook. Then, pull yarn through all 6 strands at once to form a puff stitch. (see video on www.briteloops.com )

sl st = slip stitch

sk 2 = skip 2 single crochet stitches of the previous row

 

Instructions:

Puff Blanket Edge_large

Row 1: (Main Color and hook of smaller size) start 4 inches from a corner. Punch holes as you make a row of sc around the edge of the blanket. Place stitches about 1/6 – 1/4 inches (0.8 – 1 cm) apart and same distance away from the edge. Make 3 sc in each corner hole. At the end of the row, sl st into the first sc.***

Row 2: (MC and switch to the bigger hook) 4 ch, (puff st, ch, sk 2, sc into 3rd) repeat around the blanket. Make 2 (puff st + ch) combinations into each corner. If your corners aren’t perfectly calculated, skip more or less stitches to make your double (puff + ch) combination go into each corner. At the end of the row, sl st into the 1st of the 4 ch.

Row 3: (MC) sl st into ch2, ch3, and ch4 of previous row. 4 ch, (puff st, ch, sc into the top of the puff of previous row) repeat around the blanket. Make 2 (puff + ch) combinations into each corner. At the end of the row, sl st into the 1st of the 4 ch.

Row 4: (Additional Color – optional) sl st into ch2, ch3, and ch 4 of previous row. (ch 1, sl st into ch, ch1 sl st into sc) repeat around the blanket. Make 2 (ch1 + sl st) combinations into each corner. At the end, sl st into the first stitch of this row.

Finish off. Weave the ends.

***If the blanket is tightened by the edging, stretch by blocking it after the blanket is finished. If the blanket is bunching up like a lettuce, either keep it this way because you like it or increase the distance between the sc stitches in row 1.
