The “Two Steps Beyond” blanket – FREE PATTERN INSIDE

I started this blanket straight after I finished the first  “One Step Beyond” blanket . I chose different colours but i stuck with the Scheepjes Cahlista because I Think it is by far the best choice for this blanket. The goal was to create a colour combination that looks like vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

I chose the colours 162/black coffee and 100/ lemon chiffon which in my opinion make a perfect match.

I have to admit that after the half of the work I got tired of the pattern and laid it aside for a few month. I picked it up now and then, crocheted a few lines but I did not have full focus on this project as other ideas come to my mind and become more interesting and important.

When I finally decided to finish it I thought that it would be a good idea to add a little twist and change the direction of the zig-zag lines in the middle of the blanket.  I am really satisfied with the looks of this blanket and hope that you enjoy it.

So here is the pattern.

If you want to support my work you can buy the pattern as a printable PDF on Ravelry.

Pattern notes

 

  • First sc is always worked in same stitch as ch1.
  • Colour change always in last sc with two loops on hook.
  • Every chart row represents two crochet rows in the same colour. The first row “creates” the pattern.
  • Each square in the chart represents one stitch. If a yarn B stitch appears in a yarn A row you chain 2 and skip the stitch. Same thing when a yarn A stitch appears in a yarn B row.
  • The charts are crocheted from bottom to top and from right to left.
  • You crochet a mosaicdc if the square in the row below is an alternate colour square. It is always worked two rows below in front of work. This technique gives you the opportunity to create an alternate colour stitch in the row below.
  • The second row of every chart row is sc in every sc or mosaicdc and ch2, skip1 stitch over every ch2, skip1 stitch. The first row of every chart row “creates” the pattern and the second row “manifests” it.
  • Chain2 always counts as one stitch.
  • Chain1 in the beginning of row does not count as stitch.
  • The mosaic scheme in the chart is a multiple of 16 stitches plus 5.
  • The pattern is adjustable with a multiple of 16 plus 5 in width. (plus 1 in the starting chain)
  • Chart row 1 and 2 are the starting rows
  • To create the zig zag lines you repeat chart row 3 to row 6. So if you want your blanket shorter or longer you can reduce or add a multiple of this four chart rows.
  • To create the “diamonds” you crochet chart row 11 (same as 3), chart row 12 (same as 4), and chart row 13 to 19. After that you go on with chart row 20 (same as 4), chart row 21 (same as 5) and chart row 22 (same as 6). Then you go on with the zig zag lines (repeating chart row 3 to chart row 6).
  • Chart row 31 is the finishing row of the pattern.
  • The first two and last two stitches in the mosaic patterns are starting/ending stitches. They do not affect the graphical mosaic pattern.
  • The third-to-last stitch in the chart creates symmetry.
