Welcome to the 2020 Fiber Flux Fall Crochet Along…hooray! Today is week 2 of the CAL and we’re working on the gorgeous Autumn Textures Blanket! This is a very easy and fabulously cozy blanket that is an amazing addition to your home for fall!

Here’s what we’ll be doing today:

  • How to crochet the stitch pattern of the blanket

Let’s talk about sizing…the blanket I made is a lap blanket or child/baby blanket size. It is perfect to fold in half once and drape along the top of a couch, which is just what I wanted! If you want a different size, we will go over multiples to get the exact size you need. Please note all sizing is approximate and can vary due to your personal tension, yarn substitutions and hook substitutions. The blanket as shown in the photos measures:

  • 40 inches wide
  • 46 inches tall

Instructions for the blanket:

Multiple of 3+2

Ch 68 

Row 1: Work a sc in the 2nd ch from the hook. *Ch 3, then skip 2 ch, then work a sc into the next ch.  Repeat from * across.

Row 2: Ch 3 and turn (counts as a dc).  Work a dc into the first sc from the last row. *Work a sc into the ch 3 space, then work a 3 dc into the sc (the one in between the two ch 3 spaces).  Repeat from * to end of row, then work 2 dc into that last sc from the previous row.

Row 3: Ch 1 and turn.  Work a sc in that very first dc from the previous row. * Ch 3, then work a sc into the centermost stitch of the fan (fans made with 3 dc in the previous row).  Repeat from * across, then work a sc into the turning chain space at the end of the row.

Repeat rows 2 and 3 until your blanket is as tall as you’d like for it to be.  See sizing information above more more info.  

Note: If you’re changing colors like I did and need a little help, stay tuned for next week’s tutorial on changing colors!  If you are ready to work ahead though…just know I found it looks best to change to start a new color on row three

  1. I love watching your tutorials. You are easy to follow. I have been away from crocheting due to my disabilities but now, with your guidance I'm able to crotchet again but at my own pace. Thank you so much 🤩😊
