Do you see stitches going up a staircase, or waves cascading off a waterfall? You decide ;) This blanket is a fun make for beginner and more experienced crocheters. It only uses a small amount of stitches, making it very suitable as a ‘next step’ project for beginner crocheters who have already tried their hand at the basic stitches. Experienced crocheters will also find this an addictive project since it requires just enough attention to keep your mind from wandering. Ready? Set… Crochet!

This pattern uses 16 balls of Scheepjes Colour Crafter. Two balls each of these 8 colours: 1003, 1422, 1034, 1001, 1241, 2004, 1263, 1117.

The finished size is 190x190 cm, 75x75 inches.

You will need a 4mm crochet hook, or a different size if your gauge is tighter/looser.

The pattern is available for free on my blog or as a paid PDF version. The PDF is separate for each language: US English, UK English, and Dutch; and is also ad-free, and easy to print.

The Next Step Blanket is constructed diagonally. First, we construct the lower left corner until the full width of the blanket has been reached, this can also easily be customized. Then, we crochet diagonally over the entire width of the blanket, until the desired length has been reached. Finally, we fill in the blanket by crocheting the top right corner.
