Thistle Cluster Crochet Throw Blanket


using True Blue Red Heart yarn





Welcome to my site! This is my 5th Red Heart Ombre Crochet Blanket. I can't stop using their beautiful yarns. They can be seen below the pattern. This color is called "True Blue" and combined with the Thistle Stitch pattern it makes for a beautiful throw blanket.

CL-V = (2dc Cluster, ch2, 2dc Cluster)

Stonewash Cluster V-st Baby Blanket

Stonewash Cluster V stitch Baby Blanket

I used a Cluster V-st pattern which makes this yarn even softer because of the thick stitch it creates. You should really try this yarn out if you near a Hobby Lobby.

This is my fourth Ombre blanket and there may be more to come. They are called Red Heart Super Saver Ombre and this specific one is named "Anemone".


My other ombre blankets can be seen below this pattern.

Rows: 63

Size: 38 inches wide and 31 inches tall
Gauge: 3.15 sts per inch and 2 rows per inch

ABBREVIATIONS:
Shell = (sc, hdc, dc) in the same stitch
sc =Single Crochet
hdc = Half Double Crochet
dc = Double Crochet
TCH = turning chain

PATTERN:
Row 1: in the 4th chain from the hook do 1dc (the 3 skipped stitches = first dc). Do 1dc in each chain
Row 2: Ch1, Shell in first stitch, *Skip 2, Shell in next* repeat to last 3 sts then Skip 2, hdc in the TCH
Row 3, 4: same as row 2. You should be doing each shell in each SC of the previous rows Shell stitch.
Row 5: Ch3 (1st DC). Do 1dc in each stitch across the row. 

Repeat 2 thru 5

Cluster V Stitch Crochet stitch pattern



This cluster used 2dctog all in one stitch

 Crochet Clusters are one of my favorite design elements. It's simple and creates a lot of texture. If you want to make the most out of the yarn you have this is a great stitch pattern. As you will see below it only uses 47 yards.

2 Pattern Options:

Repeat row 3 for the remainder of your pattern

Pattern without a Single Crochet base row
This pattern uses a multiple of 3 plus 1 chains

Modified Silt Stitch Crochet Baby Blanket

A beginner pattern


I found this beautiful stitch pattern on Pinterest. It was created by the Unraveled Mitten at this website. I'm addicted to these Ombre Yarns by Red Heart so I have been putting many to good use!

The texture is created by doing a row of Double Crochets on the even numbered rows. Complete pattern is below.

 A beginner pattern


I used Red Heart Supersaver Ombre Yarn. It's quite soft for Red Heart so I thought I would use it for a baby blanket. My gauge was off quite a bit. I wanted to make it 36 inches square but it ended up larger than that. I ended the blanket when I used up the second skein so it is only 32 inches tall.



My other Blankets using Ombre yarns:





A beginner pattern

Chained: 129 or a multiple of 3
Size: 42 by 31 inches
Rows: 51
Gauge: 3.07 sts and 1.6 rows per inch
Yarn: Red Heart Supersaver Ombre yarn "Scuba"
         each Skein contains 482 yrds. Used 964 yards. (2 Skeins) 
Hook: I/5.50mm Gauge: 3.07 sts per inch and 1.6 rows per inch
Abbreviations:
          SC = Single Crochet
          DC = Double Crochet
          ch = chain * = repeat instruction between them

PATTERN
Row 1: In the 4th chain from the hook do 1DC. Do 1DC in each chain across the row (126 DC's)
Row 2: Ch1 , Do (1SC, 2DC) in base of ch1, Skip 2 *(SC, 2DC) in the next stitch, Skip 2*
Repeat doing 1SC in last stitch.

Row 3: Ch3 (first DC) , 1DC in back loops of each stitch across the row  (126 DC's)

I hope you give it a try
