Tiny Gems Baby Blanket

The inspiration of the blanket

The Tiny Gems Baby Blanket is a free knitting pattern that was inspired by a dishcloth that I designed in 2020. It uses the Seersucker or Padded Diamonds stitch that adds a beautiful texture. It’s framed on the inside with a stockinette panel and the outside is worked with garter stitch. It’s all worked in one piece, so the borders are worked at the same time as the body of the blanket.

If you’d like to check out the free knitting pattern for the dishcloth that inspired this blanket, here’s the link.

About the yarn

As I was picking out the colors, the King Cole “Little Treasures Double Knitting” yarn in the color “Jem” really called out to me. It has hints of greens, yellows, cream and a touch of pinks / purples. It’s a fairly neutral color for babies and is oh-so-soft. It works up like a dream and there were very few knots. I used just under 4 skeins for this project.

The blanket uses size US 8 / 5 mm knitting needles and works over an 8 row repeat.

About the blanket

The Tiny Gems Baby Blanket works over an 8 row repeat and the stitches are worked in increments of 4. Therefore, you can adjust the size as you like. One of my testers even turned the blanket into a doll blanket for one of her granddaughters! The framing is worked as you work the blanket, so there’s no picking up stitches or adding to the blanket once the body is completed.

The blanket is sized for a 42″ x 42″ and the terms are written using US terminology. I’ve created a video to help with your blanket

4 Day Throw – Free Crochet Pattern

The 4 Day Throw was inspired by a knit stitch that I modified for a collaboration project with another designer. She directed her followers to my YouTube channel and had them pick out a stitch for her upcoming design. Well, they all picked a knit stitch. My fellow designer is not a knitter, so I adapted the stitch to slightly resemble the stitch chosen. Hence, the Leafy Lace Stitch was born!

As I created the stitch, it really called out to me to be a blanket. So, I gathered some yarn and gave it a shot. Although I loved the first version, it needed some adjustments. So, I made it again and had it tested. The testers did an amazing job and also gave me feedback that required going back to the drawing board. I reworked and rewrote the pattern, had it tested once more and here we have it!

I named it the “4 Day Throw” because I was able to make each version In just under 4 days. However, I did work on each blanket for about 8-10 hours each day. Your timing may vary depending on your skill level and the time that you have to dedicate to your project.

My testers rated the 4 Day Throw for an Intermediate to Advanced level crocheter. They did warn that this is not a project with which you can lose yourself in a television program or podcast. This project does require some concentration. However, the end result is worth it!

It’s sized for a 48″ x 58″ throw and the terms are written in US terminology. There’s a full length video tutorial (with time stamps) to help throughout the entire throw.

Also, THANK YOU to all of my wonderful testers! I couldn’t have done this pattern without you! And a big THANK YOU to Mary Maxim for providing the yarn for this gorgeous blanket!

Gauge Swatch

The gauge swatch pattern is used to confirm that you are working with the same tension as I do. This helps in determining the amount of yarn needed. If your gauge swatch turns out larger, go down a hook size. If your swatch measures smaller, then go up a hook size.

The gauge swatch pattern has a slightly different border than the blanket does. However, it’s a great way for you to gain understanding of how the leaves are formed. You’ll get comfortable with the placement of your stitches, as well as understand the modified front and back post treble crochet stitches.

To see a video tutorial that walks you through the gauge swatch, please click the image below or click HERE; you can also visit the crochet stitches page, if you prefer.
