Flannel Receiving Blankets


Insert hook through the same hole, for a third time. Make a single crochet.

Materials

 

 

 

To make one 41-inch by 41-inch blanket:

Pattern

Cut and Wind

 

 

Cut the fabric into a 42-inch by 42-inch square.
Wind the yarn into a ball. Place it to the side for now.

Pin and Sew

 

 

Fold and press each edge of the fabric 1/4-inch toward the wrong side. Fold and press each edge 1/4-inch toward the wrong side once more. Pin the folds in place and machine sew down with an edge stitch.

Crochet the Edge

 

 

 

Orient the fabric so the front is facing you and the stripes are vertical.
Begin approximately 1 inch from a corner. Insert hook just below the hemmed edge, into the middle of a stripe. Pull a loop through. Grab the yarn from the back and pull it through the loop you just made.


 

Insert hook back through the same hole, and make a single crochet along the edge of the fabric.
*Chain one.

 Insert hook into the next stripe, and make a single crochet.

 

 Insert hook back through the same hole, and make a single crochet

 





Insert hook through the same hole, for a third time. Make a single crochet.


 Repeat from * until you reach the corner.








Turn the Corner

 

 

After you’ve made a cluster of single crochets right before  the corner, chain 3 (rather than 1). For the next stitch (the first of the new side), insert the hook into the last hold you made, as pictured above.
Now that you have turned the corner, you no longer has stripes to guide your placement. You can mark the fabric every 1/4 to 5/8-inch
Continue around the 2nd, 3rd and 4th edge of the blanket, turn the 4th corner and work up to the stripe where you first began.

Connect at the End

 


 


Chain one.
Insert hook into the first stripe, where you began, and make a single crochet.
Cut yarn and pull through. Using a tapestry needle, weave in your ends.


You have done it!
Now you can do it again to make a pair!!!

Thanks to pearl Soho for  the tutorial
