Perfect Pinwheel Blanket Crochet Pattern

Perfect Pinwheel Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Perfect Pinwheel Blanket is a gorgeous blanket to make and is addicting too. When I designed this blanket, the little pinwheels that you can put outside in your yard that will spin when the wind blows were in the stores everywhere and I thought, that is the perfect name for this little blanket. I have an obsession with crochet texture, forget the basic crochet stitches, I want something that stands out with not only the gorgeous texture but you can easily customize with any color scheme. This crochet blanket is a stand out piece and is a fabulous baby gift or piece to add to your home decor. If you are looking for a fun crochet project, the you will want to add the Perfect Pinwheel Blanket to your project list and make it today!

Notes

  • Chain 3 will count as a st.
  • Chain 1 will NOT count as a st.
  • Color Choices: The Sample shown is worked with 2 colors, after row 1, starting with row 2, I alternated colors every 2 rows, but you could use any color combo you like.
  • On Row’s 3 & 5: When you work the 7 dc, you will be working in the ch 1 of the ch 3 NOT the dc7tog, if you work the 7 dc in the dc7tog the circle will not line up it will be off centered.
  • On Row 4 – At the beginning of the row, it says to “ch 3 and turn (counts as part of the dc4tog), dc3tog”, if you take the ch 3 and dc3tog and put them together they will make a dc4tog, which you will need for Row 5.
