Crochet All In the Family Blanket
The Circular Fall Mandala now has a sister, Square Mandala. Originally designed by Lisa Gentry for Red Heart and then adapted mathematically and test tried by testers with Jeanne Steinhilber of The Crochet Crowd. This is the All in the Family Crochet Blanket.
NOTE: Pattern Errata. Rnd 48 should be color E.
With the JOANN Stitch Along coming to an end. Jeanne felt there was a need to keep crocheters connected with a common project. Originally, this pattern was focusing on Mother’s Day for personal reasons but we have asked Yarnspirations to step in and join along with us. Yarnspirations design team, graphics and the social team just needed few extra weeks to coordinate and prepare the stitch along with the download.
The finishing date will be between Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. So the afghan was changed from the Mother’s Day Blanket to All in the Family as this can be for everyone and colour possibilities are endless.
Measures Approx 56″ x 56″ [142 x 142 cm].
Gauge 11 sc and 14 rows = 4″[10 cm]. Using U.S. K/10.5/6.5 mm crochet hook.
A rectangular version hasn’t been created. We are unsure of the mathematics due to the stitch counting whether that is possible with what stitches have been used to form this look.

The Sister Afghan
The circular sister of this afghan was the first sibling. Also using Red Heart with Love. This is called the Crochet Fall Circular Mandala.
I found the project to be extremely addictive to crochet and for easy level crocheters to be able to move up to an intermediate based pattern.
In the other version, similar stitches are used but factored into a square beautiful throw.

Comments on “Crochet All In The Family Blanket Pattern + Tutorial”
Any suggestions for using a varigated yarn instead of changing colors?
I fell in love with this pattern as soon as I saw it. Luckily I was able to purchase the suggested colors, and stitched along with Mikey on YouTube, which was a life saver. This was a good learning experience! I learned lots of new stitches, and especially loved Mikey’s comment that “if you’re consistent it’s not a mistake, right?” I might not have done everything as written, but it still came out beautifully!
PS: Can I upload a picture? I’m really proud of the finished product.
Sure… please do on our Stitch Social. Would love to see. https://www.facebook.com/groups/TheCrochetCrowdStitchSocial/
Hi… Question is on row 20… written instructions say to *skip next DC, 1 sc in next DC, 2 sc in each ch1 sp to last 2 DC before corner ch2 sp, 1 sc in each of next 2 dc, etc…
Video tutorial says to put 2 sc in each ch2 space until you get to the corner.
Which is correct? Thanks
If ever in doubt, follow the instructions and not my video. Sometimes I can screw up or I can improvise based on experience. Either is probably fine, but choose the written instructions as I can sometimes show different techniques to get similar results.
In the written pattern, round 11 says to use contrast F, but in the tutorial video I believe contrast A is used and it appears in the pictures that contrast A is used for this round as well. Which contrast do you suggest using? Thanks!
it’s really the artist’s choice to be honest if you like the look of using a, go for it, if you think f looks better, go with that one, it won’t affect the final outcome, it will be perfect either way
Is the video for row 16 to end available.
I have not crochet a pattern before and can not read the pattern.
Yes, Today is the second video of 4… That will take you to 15 – 25… the others will follow. It launches on Mondays at 8 am Atlantic Time Zone (My time zone).
No blue link for All in The Family
Love this! Finished the circular one and was so sad to be finished! Can’t wait to start this, but I’m doing the Beans and Bobbles right now, so won’t be starting until I’m done…enjoy! Love this group!
i love both afghans how much yarn will it to do the round one
Where its say use a crochet hook k (10.5 is the 10.5 suppose to read 6.5 mm or is the 10.5 for something other than mm) I am not sure if its a mistake or my misunderstanding. Love the pattern so glad its now a square because circle blankets really are not my thing.
on some hooks it reads k/10.5/6.5mm most of mine only read the mm mind you, it is the 6.5mm the blog is referring to, I have updated the blog to include it.
Since I could not find Stone, I chose Eggshell an off white. I hope that will look acceptable
The color ” Stone” is out of stock on Yarnspirations. Can’t find it online anywhere! Any substitute color that would work with this palette? Love this color palette!
you could try a different shade of grey if you were trying to stay close to the colour family.
Very good… Please tell me about patron
I’m not sure what info you are looking for.
