I have a video tutorial on how to attach them in which I am showing you 3 different ways.- Tutorial.

Materials:

– Yarn- worsted weight yarn- I used Paintbox yarns Simply aran (100%acrylic,100gr/3 Oz, 184m/201 yards). But you can use whatever brand worsted/aran weight yarn you have in your stash.

– Colors- Red, green and white. I used 3.5 balls of green, 1.5 balls of red and 3 balls of white. You also need 50gr of brown for reindeer and beige for the muzzle, small amount of dark brown for the antlers. And around 10gr of yellow for the tree’s star.

– tapestry needle

– 5mm crochet hook size

Abbreviation:

Stitch Abbreviation:

SC- single crochet

DC- double crochet

HDC- half double crochet

SS- slip stitch

CH- chain

Rep- repeat

Picot- chain 3, slip stitch in 3rd chain from hook

** – repeat the stitches in the ** indicated times

FO- fasten off

Bobble stitch- make 5 DC together in 1 stitch.

Speacial stitch:

How to make the bobble’s section. Pull through with white before you finish your first stitch, when you still have 2 loops on your hook. Take the red yarn and lay it across the top of your work, then crochet over it as you work a DC5TOG bobble with white. Stop when you have 6 loops of white on your hook and pull through with red to finish the stitch. Now take the white and lay it across the top of your work, and crochet over it as you work 3 SCs in red.

Do not fasten off, we will continue to the border.

BORDER:

Rnd 1: For rnd 1 we will make sc around the whole blanket. As we have different rows of SC, DC throughout the pattern if we make 2 sc in each st it will be too much and your border will be wavy.

Make 2 SC , CH 1, 2 SC in corner stitch, *SC 1 in first, 2 SC in next * rep from * to * till you reach the bobble section, then make SC 1 in each stitch. When you reach your short side make SC 1 in each across. Repeat for the remaining 2 sides.

Rnd 2: { SC 1, 1 PICOT, 1 SC in corner, *SC 1 in next, 1 PICOT, skip 1* rep from * to * till the next corner } rep from { to } for all sides.

When you are making the second round you can have more or less stitches just before the last repeat before the corner, it is not a problem just make SC in these stitch and make your corner. This can occure because while we are working SC around a blanket we tend to skip or add stitches if we are not concentrated well.

Adding the appliques onto the Christmas blanket

Attaching the appliques onto the blanket

Take 5 of the reindeer appliques and put them onto the bottom green part. First secure them with safety pins. Leave 5-8 stitches between each applique.

Take the remaining 5 and put them onto the upper green part and align them again.

I made 7 christmas trees and put them onto the white part of the blanket.

After you sewn/glued the trees put the stars on top of each.
