Crochet Tulip Stitch Blanket Pattern by Crochet For You
If you like easy to remember with one row repeating crochet patterns this blanket is for you. The self-striping yarn makes you feel more relaxed because no need to worry about changing colors.
Simple texture + self Striping yarn
This blanket made using tulip stitch. Crochet tulip stitch perfect for crocheting blankets. The reason why I love this stitch is it has a nice & simple texture, no holes and both sides have the same texture and easy to crochet with one row repeating. When you select self striping yarn you have more freedom to relax.
The yarn changes the colors itself so you only have to focus into the pattern you are working without worrying about changing colors. And also you can avoid lots of weaving ends.
This is a free size blanket so you can use any weight of yarn and the recommended crochet hook. Gauge is not very important.
I used Ice Yarn Cakes Baby Fine – Brown Shades to make this blanket. This yarn categorized as a #2-fine weight yarn, but I feel it more similar to #3 Light weight yarn so I used US H-8 / 5mm crochet hook.
