This crochet blanket started with research of vintage stitches. I wanted to make a baby boy blanket using soft blue adding a touch of retro mustard and gray into the mix. But I wanted a classic stitch to accomplish the look. I saw this boxed block stitch in several old crochet pattern books, so it’s just my assumption that it had to have been developed years ago and passed down through time. Either way, I like how my blanket turned out and I’m happy to share what I did if you’d like to make one too!
