Crochet Pattern: Round Heirloom BlanketBy Erin Burger – 7 Comments
|There is nothing better than a handmade gift, especially one that has a classic look to it that could be passed down easily from generation to generation. This round blanket is smaller in size; perfect for a baby blanket, excellent for car trips because of it’s extra thickness or as a lap blanket for cozy winter nights spent crocheting under a cabled blanket!
In this round blanket BPDC and FPDC (Front and Back Post Stitches) are the key to successfully crocheting a classic and timeless piece. If you are not familiar with these stitches, check them out in the link above and then practice them with this beginner’s cabling pattern: Cabled Headband.
The pictured afghan is made in 100% peruvian wool, but the pattern can be made in any type of yarn. The gauge and finished size is for sport weight yarn, but if you decide to use a heavier weight yarn (which will make thicker cables) please check your gauge for an accurate and excellent finished project!
Finished Size: 32″ (81 cm) in diameter
Light Weight Yarn (approximately 1000 yards)
Crochet Hook H (5.00 mm)
