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.

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.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Patterns can get frustrating. Visuals from a video are always helpful, much appreciated and make learning a new pattern more enjoyable!

  4. 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????

  5. I just love all your tutorials Mikey!!! You really explain the patterns and like some other tutorials yours don’t make you feel rushed and left wondering if you did that stitch or section right..I love all the new things you come up with and for a massive crocheter like myself its very exciting…thank you bunches and keep bringing them on.

  7. It is a beautiful afghan. I surely will start on this one asap. May I also have a video link?
    This my first time visiting your site, and I think I’m going to like it!

  8. Wow! I love the texture and rhythm of your pattern. This is absolutely a winner, Mikey. I too would appreciate a video of how to get started on this — I’m still not overly confident of my ability to understand written patterns.

  9. This is a fantastic pattern and a tutorial would be nice, but even without one this is a great project and not too difficult. It’s great to see different ways to use Caron Cakes, this is actually the second time this week I’ve seen new ways to use two cakes together, I love it. Thank you for sharing this technique and project.

  10. Please Mikey, make the toturial, I rely in your tutorials to be able to crochet anything. They are a
    bsplutly wonderful. thanks

  11. Would love to see the tutorial on this. I only started crocheting recently and have found your tutorials to be informative and fun but most importantly easy to follow for a newbie. Thank you
