Robin’s Blanket crochet pattern is perfect for those chillier nights in, for keeping in the car or hanging over the back of the sofa! It’s gender neutral so you can literally give it to anyone if you gift it!
Robin’s Blanket is a gingham farmhouse style that is just GORGEOUS and it’s such a pleasure to work up! It’s a fairly easy pattern so a confident beginner could definitely make this. But it also is one that can be made whilst sitting watching a movie or listening to a podcast.
Perfect amounts of texture
Everyone that has seen my Robin’s Blanket has fallen in love with it! It’s because Robin’s Blanket has texture galore with the modified floret stitch and the boarder but they work so well together.
Can be made in the gingham style or with one or two colours. Blocks can be made either by carrying the yarn as you work or using bobbins. So the pattern works for you regardless of which way you prefer to crochet with multiple colour blocks.
You can find out more about the Robin Richard Farmhouse Christmas Collection and it’s namesake in our blog post here.
To make this blanket you will need:
- In #4 worsted weight yarn (I used Stylecraft Aran):
- Approx 450 yards each of green and cream
- Approx 900 yards of the brown
- 6mm hook
- Stitch markers (optional)
- Tapestry needle
Gauge is not important for this project as you can amend size by simply adding more blocks and / or rows. As a guide, our blanket each block of colour was 3.25 inches wide and 2.5 inches tall.
The overall blanket size was approximately 39’’ wide and 55’’ long. Meaning it is the perfect size as it is. The pattern is easily adjustable to make it bigger or smaller to suit your needs.
