Crochet Social Textures Gingham Blanket

I’ve always wanted to crochet a gingham style blanket, and decided that small Social Textures squares would make a pretty Social Textures Gingham Blanket Pattern.  I have made my design baby sized, but you can easily keep going and make this one any size you like.

Free Pattern: Social Textures Gingham Blanket

This is a variation of the Social Textures Baby Blanket.

I used Caron One Pound yarn in 3 colors for this blanket and had quite a bit leftover.  Each square hooked up in about 10 minutes, so it’s another great project to take along and still be social with friends while you crochet.

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.
