Crochet Extra Lemon Square Blanket

I hope you enjoy my new design, Extra Lemon Square Blanket.  This blanket gets its lovely texture by crocheting the lemon peel stitch in the round from the middle. I’ve added a bit extra by substituting treble crochet stitches for the double crochet stitches on certain rounds for that little something extra.

I used most of 3 Caron Cakes because I do love the self-striping yarn, but feel free to play with color or give it a try in a solid.  This 35″ square is just right for a newborn baby, but you can also simply continue in pattern to make this blanket as big as you’d like.

  1. I think I understand this pattern, but how do you keep track of the “rounds”? I am not real good at reading the patterns.

  2. Hi Jeanne, I really like this pattern but am having trouble with the 1st two rounds. In In round 1 do I do “1 sc, ch 2” total of 3 or 4 times? In rnd 2 is the first dc done in the same sc as the hdc join at end of round 1? I usually do pretty well with written patterns but need some clarification. Thanks so much.

  3. Hi, will you be doing a video of this? For the last two hours I have been trying to do the beginning. It’s not coming out right no matter what I do or how many times I do it. Really would like to make this for my friends baby. Thank you!

  4. Hi Jeanne, I have printed this pattern several times and the photos are not printing – they come out blank. Just the pattern prints. I’m thinking its a setting when posting? I was just wondering if anyone else had this problem. I’m looking forward to making this as a gift for my sister!!
    Thanks!!

  5. I hope you will be doing a tutorial on this blanket as I’m a very visual person and don’t do well reading patterns. Thanks!
