Sam – Free Crochet Pattern

I’ve been busy making giant knitted blankets for a local store. I tried the first one with Jumbo Knitting Needles. It worked, but I felt the stitches were too tight. The second one, I used a method of hand knitting.

Hand Knitted Blanket

It gave me the look I was going for and was so much faster.

I’m still typing all my patterns. This has not been tested. If you make him, use #drunkenauntwendy. I love to see your work.

Abbreviations

SC – Single Crochet
Ch- Chain
INC – SC 2 stitches into same stitch
DEC – SC two stitches together
BLO – Back loops only
FLO – Front Loops only

Gauge – Gauge is not important for this project, but if you are making it from the kit, you should use the right size needle to ensure you don’t run out of yarn.

Notes:
Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.
The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.

Crochet section is worked in partly in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at drunkenauntwendy@gmail.com.
