After making my Seahorse Teether pattern, I had quite a bit of yarn left, so I made this blanket to go with it. The design is reversible, and was inspired by pictures of “flower” anemones. It’s made in Red Heart Baby Hugs yarn, which has been tested to be free from harmful levels of over 300 substances!

Materials:

 

Difficulty:

Intermediate – Basic stitches worked in the round. While the stitches themselves aren’t difficult, keeping track of the stitch counts and repeats requires some attention, particularly in the later rounds.

Size:

About 28 inches in diameter

Gauge:

With lighter weight yarn, 15 dc x 6.5 rows = 4 inches. After rnd 4, your circle should measure about 4 inches in diameter. Exact gauge is not critical, except that you may run out of yarn if your gauge is looser.

Abbreviations used:

  • ch = chain
  • sc = single crochet
  • hdc = half double crochet
  • dc = double crochet
  • sl st = slip stitch
  • st(s) = stitch(es)
  • sp(s) = space(s)
  • rnd = round
  • WS = wrong side
  • RS = right side

Notes:

  • This pattern works because one yarn is thicker than the other. If you try to do this pattern all in one weight of yarn, it will pucker.
  • Join rounds where indicated, with a slip stitch into the first stitch of the round.
  • Ch 3 at the beginning of a round counts as first dc.
  • If you run out of yarn early, you can stop after rnd 36 without changing colors. Work rnd 37 in Aloe, and then skip to rnd 41 to finish the ruffle.
  • Carrying yarn / changing colors:
    • Do not cut Peachie yarn when changing colors. Instead, carry it up for the next round.
    • For the Aloe yarn, you can either cut it and weave in the end each time, or try to carry it up neatly, weaving it into your chains as you chain up for each round. Remember the blanket is two sided though, so only carry the Aloe yarn if you can make it look neat on both sides.
