Crochet Checker Baby Blanket

Playfully named the Crochet Hissy Stitch Baby Blanket behind the scenes but I have called it the Crochet Checker Baby Blanket based on the Lush Life Blanket but checkerboarded up. Highly textured and easy to crochet.

This design concept was based on the number of people who message me asking me about the Lush Life Blanket. You see, the staging of the photo appears that the blanket could be a checkerboard or gingham appearance. However, I think it could be this assumption that people really love the idea.

The Crochet Lush Life Blanket is highly popular. There are a free pattern and video tutorial for this original version from 2016 that is free to access.

The Crochet Checker Baby Blanket is the same stitching but re-engineering to account for keeping the squares looking balanced.

The multiples to change the size of my version are 26 + 14. If you are changing the sizing, I don’t know how much yarn you will need. You can also use a 4 ply worsted with this information and chain in the multiples to get the desired size.

The trick to my version is that it is done like a graphghan. I don’t particularly like tapestry crochet as the colours can bleed through. So I did this as a graphghan technique instead. There is actually 5 balls of yarn in play. At the end of a section, all yarn is finished and the colours are shifted by starting the new strand colours at a different spot. As you cross over 13 sts, the next 13 are a different colour and etc.

For the squares, the squares consist of 13 sts and it takes 10 rows (with the exception of the first strip) to complete this. You can go as big or as little as you wish. For balance, I did an odd number of strips. This kept my entire blanket being square.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Thank you Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, and all those who make these videos available to us for FREE. I learned to crochet when I was 12 (ish) and got bored with the single and double crochet flat patterns (afghans, blankets, etc.) I was THRILLED when I found Mikey and the crochet crowd. I had put down my crochet hook for over ten years and only picked it back up because of Mikey and the crochet crowd. Again, thank you!!
