Crafting the Perfect Crochet Ridged Lines Gingham Blanket

Hello, crochet enthusiasts!

Get ready for a delightful project! In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of creating your own Crochet Ridged Lines Gingham Blanket. This charming blanket makes a perfect gift for a baby shower or a cozy addition to your home decor.


Getting Started

Gingham blankets are a delight to make and behold. Their appeal lies in their unique design, created by using two complementing shades of yarn. On spotting the two shades of Bernat Bundle Up, I felt an immediate urge to craft one of these myself.

Exploring Bernat Bundle Up

There are a couple of shade combinations from the Bernat Bundle Up line that could work wonders for a gingham blanket. This brand is a recent addition to Yarnspirations, offering 100% polyester yarn, which is not just soft but stretchy too. This feature made it perfect for this pattern.

However, feel free to try this blanket with any other medium weight yarn. Remember to make a small practice swatch first to ensure you’re using the hook size that best suits your blanket.


Materials Needed

For this project, you’ll need:

  • Bernat Bundle Up (100% polyester, 140 g/4.9 oz, 244 m/267 yds)
  • 3 skeins Posy
  • 1 skein Red Wagon
  • 1 skein Cloud White
  • Size H/5.0mm hook
  • Size I/5.5mm hook
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors

The finished size of this blanket will be around 30 in x 35 in. The gauge is 4 in = 17 st and 14 rows of front two loop HDC.

Step-by-Step Pattern

The stitches you will need to know are the:


Detailed instructions are then provided for creating the pattern, incorporating key tips such as pulling through with the new color on the last step of the stitch and carrying the color you aren’t using along the top of your work.

Creating the Border

Once your blanket is complete, it’s time to add the border. Weave in all ends with a tapestry needle and switch to size H hook for this task. Detailed instructions follow to guide you through the two rounds of creating the border.

Finishing Touches

If you wish to add the finishing touches to your blanket, follow these steps:

  1. Lay it out flat on a towel or foam blocking boards.
  2. Dampen the blanket with a spray bottle filled with water.
  3. Press it into straight lines, adjusting your tension and massaging the stitches.
  4. Use straight pins to keep it in place and allow it to dry.
