Unique Texture: The Harvest Stitch

At the heart of the Harvest Crochet Blanket is the harvest stitch, a unique and visually appealing stitch that adds texture and depth to your creation. This stitch creates a lovely pattern that resembles rows of crops in a field, evoking the bounty and warmth of the harvest season. The harvest stitch is enjoyable to work with and creates a stunning effect, making your blanket truly stand out.

Strips and Tassels: A Modern Twist

One of the distinctive features of the Harvest Blanket is its construction. Instead of working in one large piece, this blanket is made in long strips that are attached at the end. This method not only makes the blanket more manageable to crochet but also adds a modern twist to the traditional blanket design. Once the strips are joined, tassels are added to the ends of the blanket, giving it a playful and stylish touch that enhances its visual appeal.

Preparing the edges to be joined together

Making sure the right side of the strip is facing you, attach the yarn in the color used (if the strip is made with Fatigues, use that same color).

Working somewhat loosely, begin to sl st down along the raw side of the strip. Place your sl sts evenly, you should have 120 sl sts at the end.

Don’t overthink this part. Just insert your hook where it will fit to make your sts. As long as they are evenly placed, you’ll be fine. You will be making about 2 sl sts per row if that helps 🙂

Only do this down each raw side of each strip, you don’t have to do the top/bottom of the strip.

Repeat this for each long side of each strip.

Joining the strips together

Line up your first two strips (using the striping pattern above or use your own striping pattern), right sides facing you. Tops should be lined up with tops and bottoms with bottoms so that the harvest st is going the same way for each strip. Make sure the sl sts line up together.

Decide which color you want to use to join these strips. I always chose one of the colors of the two strips I was currently working on. For example, when I was joining Fatigues and Arrowood strips together, I chose to use Arrowood, but choosing Fatigues would’ve also worked.

Start from one end, and insert your hook through the inside loops only. Leave the outside loops alone. So, you’ll insert your hook through the inside loop of the sl st on each of the two strips you’re currently joining.

Work one sl st through the inside loops of each st all the way down.

Repeat this to join all the strips together. The outer edges of the blanket will each have a row a sl sts that did not get joined and that’s ok because it helps smooth the raw edges and give them a more ‘finished’ look.

Making the Tassels

(make 6 in the main color and 4 each in the contrasting colors)

*You will add 1 tassel per strip, at the bottom and the top of the blanket. Each tassel will be placed at the center of each strip, where the harvest st is.

How to make the tassels:

*I’m sure there is a more ‘official’ way to make these but this is my silly way of doing this LOL

Step 1: Find an object that is approximately 6″ long – I used my iPhone.

Step 2: Start by tying a piece of yarn (make this longer than you think you need it to be) around the width of the phone.

Step 3: Wrap the yarn around the object until the tassel is your desired thickness. I wrapped mine a total of 30 times.

Step 4: Untie the piece of yarn you tied in Step 2 and then pull one side of that piece of yarn out to the other side.

Step 5: Pull that piece of yarn up and tie it in a knot.

Step 6: Slide all of the yarn off the phone and cut through the loop on the end opposite of the end that you tied.

Step 7: Gather the tassel together and tie a piece of yarn around the whole thing to form a ‘head’.

Step 8: Trim the ends and attach the tassel to the center st of each strip. After tying your tassel on, use a crochet hook to pull the ends down through the tassel as part of the ‘fringe’.
