Christmas crochet snowmen blanket!

Every year we do a few Christmas projects but most of the time the perfectionist in us keeps telling us that they are not good. This year was a rollercoaster for us- we opened a little online yarn shop in my homeland(Bulgaria) and my sister got pregnant with her first baby. It made us think about our goals and what we would like to teach our children.

After the birth of my niece, we made a resolution and decided to put all of our patterns on show. And we can’t wait to post them. Yay! I love how crochet can help us grow as people and let us learn so many good things from just a hobby.

A few years back we made some crochet Christmas granny squares!

My sister decided to play around and created this stunning blanket! We kept the blanket itself pretty simple(only dc rows with some popcorn here and there), so a lot of people would be able to make it.

If you have just started with the Christmas rush you must definitely check out the most popular Christmas pattern on our blog for over two years- The crochet Alpine stocking! (I am amazed at what a blast it was and still is).

Or if you have a small kid around the family or neighborhood you will love this kid’s stocking- Paw patrol inspired kid stocking!

In this pattern, we have a section with bobble stitches. There we will crochet the bobbles in white and the stitches in between with red color. You must carry on the yarn as you crochet along. See below for a mini tutorial.

In this pattern, the initial CH 3 is counted as a stitch unless stated otherwise.

For this crochet Christmas blanket, we need to make a few Snowman appliques. I made a separate post for them so it will be less confusing. Check out Crochet snowman appliques.

If you don’t know how to sew appliques on a crochet project I recorded a video tutorial with 3 different methods

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. Keep in mind that if you use thinner yarn such as sport or DK weight you need to add more stitches on your foundation chain to have the same size as ours!

– Colors- blue and white. I used 3 balls of each color. You also need a small amount of orange for the nose and a small amount of black for the crochet eyes.

– tapestry needle

– 5mm crochet hook size

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

DC5tog – Bobble stitch- *YO, insert hook, YO and pull up a loop, YO and pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 4 more times, inserting hook into the same stitch each time. YO and pull through all loops on hook.

Mini flower-1 SS +1 Picot + 1 SS+ 1 Picot + 1 SS + 1 Picot + 1 SS all in 1 stitch

How to make the bobble section by changing colors.

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.
