Tropical Sunset Baby Blanket mini CAL-Part 4-The Border

Hello all!

We arrived to the last part of our journey of our beautiful tropical sunset inspired baby blanket CAL. The border is easy, but still looks beautifully textured and a bit ruffled. 😀

This pattern and photographs are the property of K.A.M.E. Crochet by Krisztina Anna Matejcsok-Edomer and should be used for personal and non-commercial use. You may not alter or sell this pattern in any way. You may sell finished products, but please credit K.A.M.E. Crochet if you can. Thank you!

Difficulty:

Easy

Finished Size:

28” x 40” (71 cm x 102 cm)

Materials needed:

  • 4 mm (G) Hook
  • Approximately 1106 yards/1027.5 metres (405 grams) of DK weight yarn; I used Aldi So Crafty DK in different colors, in the following quantities:
  • Color 1: 66 grams (165 meters/180 yards)
  • Color 2: 86 grams (215 meters/235 yards)
  • Color 3: 81 grams (202.5 meters/221 yards)
  • Color 4: 86 grams (215 meters/235 yards)
  • Color 5: 86 grams (215 meters/235 yards)
  • Yarn needle for weaving in ends
  • Scissors

Stitches used and Abbreviations:

CH = chain

ST = stitch

SP = space

SK = skip

SLST = slip stitch

SC = single crochet

HDC = half double crochet

DC = double crochet

*-* =repeat pattern between these symbols

Additional terms/ Special Stitches:

Crossed double crochet:

Skip 1 stitch and put 1 double crochet into the next stitch, then put 1 double crochet into the skipped stitch. This way you will create nice little double crochet ”crosses”.

Picot Stitch:

CH 3 and then SLST back into the first chain of CH 3

Gauge:

4 HDC = 1”

Additional notes:

  • If a row/round starts with a Chain 1, that is not counted as a stitch
  • CH 3 is always counted as a DC
  • US terms used throughout
  • Slip stitch doesn’t count as a stitch
  • Notes are written in (brackets) to help you through the pattern
  • When working on the corners, always remember that there might be a hidden stitch hiding under the corner stitches which is the first stitch of the previous row
