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.

Stitch Counts for Repeat Rnds 32 – 41

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. Hi Mike,

    Is the video for row 16 to end available.
    I have not crochet a pattern before and can not read the pattern.

    Thanks,
    Berndette

    • 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).

  4. 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!

  5. Hi there,
    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.

  6. 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!
