The Bloque Stitch Blanket is made using the bloque stitch (surprising, I know), which is an interlocking stitch where you work into unworked stitches from previous rows. This creates a nice, thick, solid fabric without any holes. The staggered texture created by the stitches works really well with self striping yarns. The pattern is written for a small baby size blanket but can easily be adjusted to be different sizes. It is finished off with a simple single crochet border.

A video tutorial for the stitch is also included.
