Multi Hearts Modern Tapestry Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

I'm not usually a heart person. It's not my style. But my multi hearts blanket is too sweet not to love. And HELLO neons and neutrals?! #thankyousomuch

Below is the tutorial/pattern for this blanket that I hope you will love. If you need any clarification on any of the instructions below, feel free to leave a comment or email me at thefadedpineapple[at]gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!


What you'll need:
  • 3+ skeins of I Love this Yarn in Light Gray for the main color (any worsted weight yarn will work, however, you may need more yarn or not as much as what I list here). Start with 3 skeins, you might need a 4th one.
    • Using a yarn ball winder or another manual method (see my tutorial here to wind a center pull yarn ball with your hands) wind 4 bigger double stranded center pull yarn balls and 3 smaller double stranded center pull yarn balls. (TIP: I used a flat food scale to help me make my yarn balls. While this was super helpful it isn't necessary, eyeballing it is just fine!)
  • 4 skeins of I Love this Yarn in Blue Multi for the accent color (SIDENOTE: If you're using a SOLID color from this brand, you shouldn't need more than 2 skeins. The yardage on solid skeins is significantly more than the multi/striped/ombre yarns from this line).
    • Make 3 bigger double stranded center pull yarn balls and 3 smaller double stranded center pull yarn balls.
  • Size US 15 (10mm) crochet hook
  • Something to sort your yarn strands. I use a laundry basket that has holes in it, I found it on clearance at Wal-Mart. I've also seen people using small bins with holes in it, something like this.
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle/tapestry needle (something to weave your ends in)




KEY:
st/sts = stitch/stitches
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
mc = main color
ac = accent color

Two options for row 1:
  1. ch 62, in 2nd chain from hook, sc in every st across (61 sc - you should always have 61 sc in every row).
  2. sc foundation chain for 61 sc (I took pictures of this process but it turned out horrible. Here is an extremely detailed pictorial and this is a great video tutorial.)
Row 2: ch 1, turn. sc in every stitch across

Rows 3-9: repeat row 2

Row 10: ch 1, turn. sc in first 12 sts, complete 12th st with ac (crochet over the tail of ac to secure it in place. Keep this in mind when ending new yarn moving forward. Otherwise you can skip this step but you'll have that many more tails to weave in at the end). sc in next st, finishing this sc with new ball of mc (bring tail and working yarn of ac to the front before continuing with new mc). sc in next 17 sts, finish 17th stitch with new ac yarn, sc in next st, finish st with new mc yarn, sc in next 17 sts, finish 17th st with new ac color, sc in next st, finish st with new mc color, sc in remaining 12 sts.

NEXT: Cut 3-4" tails of all the yarn strands EXCEPT for the one currently on your hook

Row 27: ch 1, turn. sc in every stitch across.

Row 28-34: Repeat row 27

Rows 35-59: Repeat rows 10-34

Rows 60-84: Repeat rows 10-34

Row 85: ch 1, turn. sc in every stitch across. Ch 1 and pull through, cut a 3-4 inch tail and pull tight, tying it off.

FOR THE EDGING: Start in a corner of the blanket, you're going to sc around the entire blanket making sure to place 3 sc in each corner. Also, make sure you count the sc down the sides of the blanket to ensure they're even on both sides.

Weave in all the tails and you are done. All the heart emojis, you did it! If you make it and love it, tag me on IG @thefadedpineapple. If you hate it, put on some Christmas music and shoot me an email for some help.

  1. Hi there!
    This blanket looks beautiful and I'm really looking forward to trying it out, I just have a question. Are you using two strands at all times? Is that why you used a 10mm hook?
