Berry Blast Mini Photo Blanket - Valentine Inspired - Free Crochet Pattern - Great Baby Prop!

Last year, I worked up some Small Mini Blankets in this gorgeous Berry Blast colorway, but being after Valentine's Day, I decided to hold off on sharing the project. Tomorrow, I will share them with you!

Today, I am sharing this Mini Photo Blanket. This is great for stuffing inside of a larger bucket to prop up baby, or on a pouf as a layering blanket.

Materials:
- L11/8mm Hook
- Chunky Yarn (5) - I used about 146 yds (2 balls) of Deborah Norville's Chunky Serenity Yarn in Berry Burst.
   *You can also use two strands of worsted weight yarn held together.
- #18, or #20 Tapestry Needle for Weaving in Ends.

Time Spent:
   I was able to complete this larger mini blanket in about an hour and 15 minutes.

Abbreviations:
   DC - Double Crochet
     *You can start with a FDC (Foundation Double Crochet) if you want to make your mini blanket shorter or longer.

Measurements:
   19" x 19"

Gauge:
   7 DCs x 4 rows = 3" Square. [Optional] Border adds 1" to total.

Pattern Notes:
I did not add a border to my blanket, but if you would like to, reduce your beginning chain by 3 stitches, work one less row and add a single crochet border. The mini blanket will come out to be the same size.

Pattern:

Chain 47. DC in 4th chain and in each chain across. (45 DC)

Rows 2 - 28: Chain 2, turn. DC in 2nd DC and in each DC across.

Fasten Off, and Weave in Your Ends.

Please feel free to make and sell this mini blanket, but please DO NOT claim this pattern as your own nor should you sell my pattern, and DO NOT re-publish my photos as your own. DO NOT copy and paste my pattern anywhere, please link to it instead.

This fee is to compensate for the view/s lost once you no longer need to return to the blog for the information, as you will have your own copy. Plus!
