loops & threads® charisma® crochet kaleidoscope blanket

Create a colorful blanket in Charimsa®. All your ends from changing colors become fringe, so you don't have to weave in any ends!
Step 1

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS: 40" (102 cm) x 48" (122 cm)

GAUGE: 9 sts x 12 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Single Crochet; save time and check your gauge


PATTERN NOTES:

  • Blanket is worked entirely from the right side, cutting and rejoining the yarn on each row. You will not turn your work. Cut ends will be tied as fringe to eliminate ends to weave in.
  • Rows are worked in single crochet through the back loop only, with a treble crochet worked in the front loop of the 3rd row down, every 5th stitch. When you work a treble crochet, you will skip the next sc in the row, and then continue working in the following sc.


INSTRUCTIONS:

Stripe Sequence: *3 rows Dragonfly, 3 rows Black Raspberry, 3 rows Northern Lights, 3 rows Cherry Blossom, 3 rows Bright Pop; repeat from * to end of blanket.

With Dragonfly, ch 121, leaving an 8” (20 cm) tail at beginning of chain.

Setup Row 1 (RS): Sc in 2nd ch from hook sc in each ch across, do not turn – 120 sc. Fasten off leaving an 8” (20 cm) tail.

Setup Row 2 (RS): Join Dragonfly at beginning of RS row, leaving an 8” tail, ch 1, sc in back loop only in each sc across, do not turn. Fasten off leaving an 8” tail.

Repeat Setup Row 2 once more.
