Ten Stitch Blanket Crochet Pattern
This Ten Stitch Blanket Crochet Pattern is a conversion of Frankie Brown’s Knit Ten Stitch Blanket.
I would like to thank Frankie for giving me permission to write the crochet version of her fabulous pattern and can only hope that I have done it justice.
If you would like to show your appreciation for Frankie and her designs, you are more than welcome to make a donation to the Children’s Liver Disease Foundation through Frankie’s Just Giving Page.
Update 24/10/2013:** I have now edited the instructions to make them more comprehensive.*
For those of you who have never seen (or heard of) the Ten Stitch Blanket, let me break it down for you:
The Ten Stitch Blanket is worked in a spiral (or “rounds of rows”) around a central square of 10 stitches by 10 rows. The beauty of the project is that the short rows (10 stitches per row, less on the corner rows) propel you forward like you wouldn’t believe and it is the perfect pattern for using up any and every scrap of yarn in your house.
This is a very easy pattern and you should have the different sections memorized by the time you have done a couple of “rounds of rows”.
Even though the pattern is easy, it is a bit fiddly to explain, so I have now done a Video Tutorial as well.

You can use any thickness of yarn and the appropriate hook for your chosen yarn thickness. It just depends on how fine or bulky you want your finished blanket to be.
You can also use any yarn you fancy. Variegated yarn and hombre-type yarns are my favourite.
Gauge is not important as such, but if you are going to use different thicknesses of yarn, you will need to work up your own gauge square and then adjust your hook accordingly when you swap yarn thicknesses. If you do not do this, you’re going to end up with one wonky-looking blanket.
