Crochet Social Textures Baby Blanket

Try my new blanket design, it’s called the Social Texture Baby Blanket.

This is called Social Textures because it’s really a simple design of moss stitch in the round followed up with touch of texture.  The social part came from Mikey since I talked to others the entire time I crocheted this blanket. It’s easy to remember the repeat and you don’t always have to look down at your work.

I break a few rules on this one, but I think the end result is a nice square.  I use a hdc in the corner to close the sc rounds to create a ch-2 sp, and a sc to close the dc rounds to create a ch-1 sp.  By doing this, it always keeps you centered in the corner spaces.

I used Caron Big Cakes in Boysenberry for my sample, but it would look lovely in your favorite color combinations.  So many ways to play color into the deep texture.

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.

    I just ordered 3 skeins of the Caron Big Cakes Boysenberry for this pattern and was very excited to make this for an upcoming baby birth. There is no yellow, no pink, no anything but various shades of purple. It won’t do at all. Either they have changed the yarn or the pattern isn’t accurate.

    1. Jeanne says:

      The yarn was purchased 2 years ago. It was CC Boysenberry, but perhaps they have changed the shading on it. Sorry you are disappointed.

  2. Rae J. Prybylla says:

    I have an old pattern for a baby dress and booties called Cotton Candy , but I don’t see the directions for the sleeves. I have the dress pattern and the booties ,but not for the sleeves. Can you help me find this pattern.

    1. Jeanne says:

      When I did a search for that pattern, it shows it as a sleeveless dress. Sorry, I’m not sure what pattern you mean.

  3. Julie says:

    I just came across a tutorial of yours the other day of an x- stitch baby blanket and now I can’t find it anymore 🙁

  4. Noel O'Toole says:

    Will you please share how to adapt this pattern so I can make a rectangle shaped blanket instead of a square?

      1. Mary Lynne says:

        Should I have the same number of triple crochet on each side? I’m coming out with different numbers on one side. For example on round 15 I have 3 sides with 8 fptrc and 1side with 7

  5. I’ve been trying to do this Social Texture blanket since it first came out. Still waiting for the tutorial to get beyond the connection point of the hdc point. Yarn is ready, hook is ready, I am ready, but are you ready to do this simple tutorial. SOS.

    1. It’s on my list. I have a crochet cruise kicking off this week. I’m really strapped for time to keep our sponsors happy and website programming. I’m sorry. I am slacking. I’m just running out of time each day.

  6. Hannah Davenport says:
