Pattern Instructions for the Crochet Tulip Baby Blanket

Foundation: make 128 chs. (Or any multiple of 4)

This blanket is made using the tulip stitch. For a full stitch tutorial, watch this video.

Row 1: In the third ch from the hook, work 3 dc. Ch 2, work one sc in the next ch. Sk the next 2 chs. [Work 3 dc in the next ch, ch 2, sc in the next ch, sk 2 chs]. Repeat from [ to ] across, ending with a sc in the last ch. Ch 2, turn. (96 dc, 32 sc, 32 ch-2 sps)

Row 2: Locate the ch 2 space from the row below. In this space, you’ll work:

  • 3 dc
  • ch 2
  • 1 sc

Continue to work these same sts in each ch 2 space across the row. Ch 2, turn. (96 dc, 32 sc, 32 ch-2 sps OR 32 tulip ‘squares’)

Row 3: Repeat Row 2 until your blanket measures 37″ or your desired length.

Finishing row (optional): You’ll notice that the bottom of your blanket is flat while the top of the blanket is scalloped. If you want, you can add a row of sc sts all the way across to even it out. Since I always keep my blanket folded, it doesn’t really bother me so I kept mine as is. This step is completely optional.

To make the finishing row:

sc in each ch-2 sp and in each dc all the way across. You will skip over the sc sts. (128 sc)

I used a different color in the photo below so it’s easier to see what the finishing sc row would look like, should you decide to make one.
