Every year for Christmas my kids get a new blanket. My youngest daughter loves the color red. She is always running off with her older siblings red stuffed animals and toys. So I decided to make her a flower blanket of red and yellow!
I made 4 kinds of flours using red, yellow, and white:
To make this blanket you will need:
Size H crochet hook
Cherry Red Yarn
For this blanket I made:
10 Yellow centered White petaled flower motifs
10 White centered Yellow petaled flower motifs
9 Red centered White petaled flower motifs
14 White centered Red petaled flower motifs
For a total of 43 motifs!
Sl into first chain
Dc into the ring
Ch 1, 2 dc into the ring ( do this 5 times)
(Change Color) Ch 3
dc, ch1, 2 dc
2 dc, ch1, 2 dc * all around until you have 12
(Same Color) Sl St in the next space
7 dc * all the way around
Insert hook into 3rd ch from 1st ch3
(Change Color) 1 Sc in each dc ( don’t forget to sc down to round 3)
(Change Color) Sl St, ch 3
ch1, dc into same space
8 dc, ch1, dc into same space * all around
Secure with Sl St
Yarn off, Pull Through.
That is how to make each of the flowers. I made 43 flowers for the blanket in the picture. To bind them together I did a lace binding.
Then finished it off with a sc border all the way around in charcoal.
