Rice Seed Blanket

 

We like to stay in bed the hole day long, snuggling under that super cosy blanket made from 100% Merino wool. Make your own 'Rice Seed Blanket' in no time from this easy peasy free lalylala crochet pattern!


smart idea

You don't have to decide how large your blanket should be in the end - just crochet ahead and stop whenever you feel like it's big enough.

The 'Rice Seed Blanket' is worked round by round like a giant granny square. This gives you the possibility to enlarge it any size.

Make a baby blanket from the pattern and let it grow as your baby grows just by adding some rounds once in a while to make it big enough for a toddler. Add more rounds to enlarge it to kid's size and later crochet on to make it fit for a teenager or young adult. Finish each stage with a round worked in a contrasting color or use a different color for each stage to illustrate the growth.

NOTE You are working in closed round, which means you close every rnd with a slst into the first or third initial ch stitch. Next, break the yarn and weave in the ends on then backside of the blanket.

 

Start a foundation chain of 4 ch from yarn A.
Close the chain to a ring with a slst into the first ch.

Don't crochet into the top of the stitches, but work into the chain spaces under a ch-3 chain (ch3sp) between the dc-clusters from now on.

 

rnd 02:

Join yarn B into any ch3sp, ch 4, sc 1 into same ch3sp, ch 3, [°sc 1, ch 3, sc 1° into next ch3sp, ch 3] 3x, slst to 1st ch of the beginning-ch4.

Start the next round in one of the ch3-spaces in any corner of the square:

 

rnd 03:

Join yarn A into any ch3sp at a corner of the square, ch 3, °dc 2, ch 3, dc 3° into the same ch3sp, ch 1.

Into the ch3sp on the side: °dc 3°, ch 1,

Into the ch3sp in the next corner: °dc 3, ch 3, dc 3°, ch 1

Repeat the instructions alternately across all ch3-spaces all the way around the square.

Close the rnd with a slst to the 3rd ch of the beginning-ch3.

 

rnd 04:

Join yarn B into any ch3sp in a corner of the square, ch 4, sc 1 into the same ch3sp, ch 3.

Into every chain space along the side: sc 1, ch 3.

Into every ch3sp in a corner: °sc 1, ch 3, sc 1°, ch 3.

Repeat the instructions alternately across all ch3-spaces all the way around the square.

Close the rnd with a slst to the 1st ch of the beginning-ch4.

Repeat the instructions alternately across all ch3-spaces all the way around the square.

Close the rnd with a slst to the 3rd ch of the beginning-ch3.

 

Repeat rnd 4 and rnd 5 alternately, until your blanket reached the desired size.

For the very last round, which is the border and a repitition of rnd 4, you change to yarn C (yellow), or any other color you prefer to use as a conrasting color.
