Crochet Hugs + Kisses Around the Block
Introducing, the 5th in the Hugs & Kisses series of patterns. This pretty lapghan size blanket is just perfect for a chilly afternoon to snuggle under, with a cup of tea and a good book.
Hugs & Kisses Around the Block is the rectangle from the middle version of the design that consists of X’s and O’s to represent the Hugs & Kisses. I used 3 Caron Big Cakes to crochet this blanket. You can use your favorite yarn, make it bigger or smaller. You are the artist.

Comments on “Crochet Hugs & Kisses Around the Block Pattern + Tutorial”
ok am i just dense or what?i’m on row 5 of this pattern and the numbers are NOT adding up for me.it says to have 88 sc on row 4 which i have,then on row 5 the repeat is hdc,pc,hdc ok i got that but the stitch count is 28 pc and 68 hdc. HOW!? there is no way to have just 10 pc per side and 4 on either end without skipping stitches.please help
The repeat is hdc, pc, hdc… so there will be 2 hdc between each pc. hdc, pc, hdc, hdc, pc, hdc, hdc, pc, hdc… etc.
Do you have a diagram that shows the stitch count Per side by Row
Morning Barbara? Are you just wanting a spreadsheet of numbers or a crochet diagram? I’m not quite sure.
I think (not 100% Positive) that I saw that there is plans in the works to do a diagram, It will be a bit before it gets done because there are so many behind the scene steps to go through.
she put out one today for the chevron hugs and kisses I believe, maybe you could take a look at that one?
oh crap, sorry, I do know they have been talking about diagrams, I just don’t know how far along in the planning they are right now, there is quite a few projects going on.
Are you any closer to getting a diagram or row count stitches for “Hugs & Kisses Around the Block”. I know you are very busy but I would appreciate it. Thanks.
I see that I am not the only person who is having problems with this pattern.
I know Daniel did the Hugs and Kisses for the Chevron. Let me ask Jeanne. I’m unsure if she did a rough diagram in her design notes.
Mikey, A diagram would be nice, but I would settle for the total number of stiches per row, as designated in the Small and large Repeat. I had to frog almost my entire blanket because it got so out of “square”. Having just the count on the popcorn row is not very helpful.
Thanks. Leave it with me. It takes me about 5 – 8 hours to draw a diagram. I have to find that time in my schedule before I can commit to it. I’m not very fast the computerized diagram stuff.
Barbara, I’m terribly sorry, but I do not. This was written a couple years ago and I do not still have the blanket.
Well shoot! I am on row 29 and cant go further without some row counts. I have been counting the Xs and 0s from the picture on the pattern but cant make them out now. Is there a formula you used to increase the size of the blanket? Almost anything would help.
There is no formula, but I’m sure by now you have seen the repeat… sc, X, sc, pc, sc, X, sc, dc. Just keep going and you will be fine! Don’t fret over the counts at this point. You are already more then halfway! Just keep your sides even and it will all work out. Fake a stitch if you have to. 🙂
Do you have one for the Hugs and Kisses chevron, I would like to that as well. I love the design.
Yes, here is the link. 🙂
If you go on The Crochet Crowd page and type Hugs and kisses chevron, into the search it will bring up a blanket with the pattern and diagram, I tried linking it here for you, but it wouldn’t let me.
I do you like to see a stitch count per side. I’ve had a terrible time keeping this pattern even. Do you have a diagram that shows the stitch count Per side by Row
I loooooooove rectangular vs. square!!! Your tutorial would be so much appreciated!!! Have a blessed weekend xoxox
I’m sorry, the project wasn’t designed that way. I don’t have an immediate answer for you. It requires a mathematics breakdown and research to ensure it will work.
Would love to see a video. Mikey you have inspired me and lit a fire for crocheting again, as well as wanting to knit. You are such a wonderful, patient and gentle spoken teacher. Please continue doing what you do! My children area also watching you to learn. One of which is only able to use her feet due to nerve damage and losing the use of her hands. Thank you for all of your time you give.
Love all your videos and patterns! Can you please post a video tutorial, and maybe a chart of the pattern also?
Thanks from Cajun country!
Please, please, pretty please do a video!!!
I would love to see a tutorial. I cannot get past round 3 / 4 I am just not understanding the instruction.
is there any chance that this is available in a chart format (image)? I am a left handed. The instructions don’t always line up for me and I find that I am able to figure it out when looking at a chart better than following written instructions.
Please do a video of this pattern ??
Yes, please do a video of Hugs & Kisses around the block.
