the spider blanket

spider blanket by elisabeth andrée

it is the same stitch pattern but now i’ve crocheted blocks with off-white edges. around the blanket i made a simple crocheted edge with the same off-white yarn.

the yarn i used is phildar coton 3 with crochet hook size 3.5. of each color i needed one ball and of the off-white yarn 4.5 balls.

the pattern works quickly, in about two weeks i had this little blanket ready. the only problem was to weave in the ends on the edges around the blocks, which i like to secure extra by sewing them with plain white sewing thread.

i am satisfied with the look of these cheerful girly spiders:)

hope you enjoy your weekend!


on request i made a list of numbers of the colors i used. not every color is still available, i chose number 069 as a reasonable substitute for the 3rd color seen from the top of the blanket.

please please note that i do not work for/at phildar and i therefore can not help you with questions about the yarn or where to buy it.

  1. For Andrea Stamas: I have crocheted the squares together.
    First crochet a row of 1 half double crochet and 1 chain around the squares.
    Then hold two squares with the wrong sides facing each other and alternately crochet into the hdc of the top and the bottom square. After the last hdc of the first two squares make 1 chain and then start with the next two.
    Good luck!

  2. I love the way you graded the colours. That is quite an eye-catcher.

  5. @ Sharon, Thanks for stopping by. There is no pattern for this blanket, but you can download the diagram for the spider stitch (see the link in the text). What I did was this: two spiders in width and two spiders in height for one square. I have no written pattern and on MyPicot are only diagrams available.Thanks again.
