Ahoy! Are ye lookin’ for somethin’ special to crochet? Look no further than the Pirate Map corner to corner crochet blanket pattern.
This enchanting pattern is perfect for all scallywags who want to add a touch of pirate inspiration or magic to their crocheting projects.
I have been wanting to release this pattern to mark International Talk like a Pirate Day today for about 2 years.
But this year I was determined to get both the Pirate Map and the sister pattern, the Pirate Ship, out and released. After all, any self-respecting pirate needs their own treasure map!
This is a corner to corner afghan pattern. As such it is worked flat and in diagonal rows and you will use bobbins.
You can use the HDC method or the DC method for a slightly larger blanket.
For this particular crochet blanket pattern I used the same yarn as I did for the Pirate Ship pattern – Paintbox Simply Aran.
When it comes to yarn for a crochet blanket for children I would recommend looking for an acrylic yarn as it doesn’t tend to irritate many allergies and can be washed in the machine and cool tumble dried.
