Crochet Pandora’s Box Blanket

The Crochet Pandora’s Box Blanket by Mikey is an easy to follow pattern that is using the very best of Caron Big Cakes Yarn. Using 4 balls will create square blanket to be about 50″ square.

Free Pattern: Crochet Pandora’s Box Blanket

For this project, I used the interior of the Caron Big Cakes Ball for the double crochet rounds. For the single crochet, ch 3 rounds, I used the exterior of the same ball. This creates the colours to be cross mixed over top of each other. Eventually both ends will meet up. Once out, grab another ball and do the same thing to until you get to your desired size.

The colour used is the Toffee Brickle colouring. It gives a Moroccan look to the blanket.

Here is a close up of the front and I have flipped over one corner. The extended single crochet is a double sided stitch that appears on both sides.

    I made the blanket and I absolutely love it. My tension probably wasn’t so great, so I need to block it to bring it back to square. Any suggestions on blocking a piece this large?

    Thanks so much for this and all your patterns. Working your patterns gave me a wonderful holiday season.

    • Here is what I do with my large projects. I run the project run a cold water rinse cycle/spin in my washer. I then lay my project out flat on my tile floor to dry overnight. I take my time smoothing, adjusting, stretching and shaping the stitches as needed to make my project square. Michael likes to use a streamer on his projects.


    great tutorial… and loving this pattern… your reference to lady and the tramp.. does that mean that the ‘exterior’ yarn is from the same cake as the ‘interior’ yarn??

    thank you

    Hiya Mikey,
    I love this pattern.
    I downloaded the pattern and then noticed that there is an error on the first row….well i wasn’t sure, then i watched the video and i was right.

    Round 1 – Ch 3 (counts as first dc here
    and thoughtout), 2 dc in ring, ch 2, [3
    dc in ring, ch 1] 3 times; join with sl st
    in top of beg ch. Fasten off, weave in

    If i am mistaking, i apologise.

    • Mikey

      If your suggestion what it should be or is that what you think is wrong? I don’t follow 100%.

      • I would like to try this pattern, unfortunately I can’t get the Caron Big Cakes yarn. Would Caron Chunky Cakes work? It is #6 instead of #4.
        Thank you

      • Mikey

        Yes, just adjust the hook to an 8 mm / L hook.

  7. Susan

    This is a gorgeous pattern. In the instructions, you don’t have to necessarily cut the wool for every round. I leave the wool from the previous round trailing until the following round when I need it.


      i wondered if i could do exactly that. i hate all the cutting and weaving.

  14. Susan R

    This blanket is gorgeous and may be the project that finally gets me to try the “cake” style yarn. I was confused about one thing in the instructions. It says to start the initial ring + dc row with exterior, then finish off and switch to exterior. From looking at the photo, (and from being lazy and not wanting to fasten off before I absolutely have to), don’t you do the initial ring with INterior, then fasten off and do sc row with exterior, alternating for each row?

    Thanks for sharing this pattern! I wonder if I could finish one in time for Christmas????
