Turtle Beach Blanket (Classic Blue Version and Teal Ombre Version) are two original PlanetJune Accessories crochet patterns by June Gilbank.

Pattern Links: As I’ve been told to list this as a single pattern in the Rav database, the Rav link above points to the multipack of both blanket patterns (for a reduced price over buying them separately). You can buy each pattern separately for the single blanket price from the following links:

Optional Add-On: You can also add the optional Seafoam and Edging Expansion Pack to any of the listings for an additional $1.50 before you checkout. Details:

  • Puffy Seafoam: Add a 3-dimensional effect to your Turtle Beach blanket with the puffy seafoam add-on. This includes right- and left-handed instructions in the pattern, and an exclusive video demonstration (with right- and left-handed versions), so you can watch it in action – you’ll find the video links in the pattern!
  • Squared-off Edging: Use the edging instructions to square off the rippled top and bottom edges of your blanket, to give it a rectangular shape. (This edging can also form the base row for any deeper crocheted border.)

Pattern Details: I’ve revamped my incredibly popular Turtle Beach blanket design into two new versions:

  • The Classic Blue version has a classic colourblock design. The gentle waves of the ripple pattern are highlighted by the ribs at the edge of each stripe. Relax as you enjoy crocheting a tranquil beach leading to a cool and calm true blue sea.
  • The Teal Ombré version gradually transitions with clever striping through from the palest aqua to a deep navy. The gentle waves of the ripple pattern are highlighted by the ribs at the edge of each stripe. You’ll almost feel the sun warming you as you crochet this pure sandy beach leading to a balmy tropical teal sea.

Each pattern includes complete row by row crochet instructions for the 8 most common classic afghan sizes, ranging from a small baby blanket through to a king size afghan. For each afghan size, the yardage for each colour is also provided, so you’ll be able to order all your yarn at once and know you have enough.

Blanket/Afghan sizes included:

  • Baby (approx 24x32”, 60x80cm)
  • Lapghan/Crib (approx 36x48”, 90x120cm)
  • Toddler (approx 40x48”, 100x120cm)
  • Throw (approx 48x60”, 120x150cm)
  • Twin (approx 60x85”, 150x215cm)
  • Full/Double (approx 74x85”, 190x215cm)
  • Queen (approx 80x90”, 200x230cm)
  • King (approx 96x90”, 245x230cm)

Difficulty: easy/intermediate

Yarn: Worsted weight yarn in:

  • Classic Blue: a sand/yellow colour, white, and 3 shades of blue.
  • Teal Ombre: two sand/yellow/beige colours (to represent wet and dry sand), white, navy, and 3 shades of teal (green-hued) blue. Use a light worsted weight (#4 medium) yarn - or a heavy DK (#3 light) yarn - if you want to match my gauge.

Samples use Red Heart Soft and Bernat Satin (light worsted weight) yarns.

Hook: H US / 5mm

Details: This detailed pattern includes full written row-by-row instructions for all 8 sizes of blanket together with the yardage required for each colour (in both yards and metres) for each size, a full colour schematic of the completed blanket for each size, and a clear charted stitch diagram of the stitch pattern.
