Picot Blanket Crochet Pattern

Finished Picot Blanket crochet pattern by The Turtle Trunk

Happy Monday Friends! Today I’ll be sharing with you the Picot Blanket crochet pattern! If you’re familiar with my designs, you know how much I love the picot single crochet stitch! So I knew I had to use it for a blanket! The Picot Blanket is full of so much beautiful texture thanks to both picot single crochets and ribbed stitches. The pattern includes instructions for 7 different sizes but you can easily adjust the size too! Scroll down for the free crochet pattern, follow along with the video tutorial on YouTube, or get the pdf version on Etsy & Ravelry.

Sizes

This pattern uses a 6 row repeat to create stripes that can be repeated as many times to get your desired length! There is a size chart down below that gives you 7 sizes ranging from baby stroller size to king size, or you can completely customize your size! Make sure to check out gauge with a swatch to ensure proper sizing.

Colors

You can use as many or as few colors as you’d like. It would be a good idea to check how many stripes your size has then plan out how many colors you’d like to use and what order to put them in. Use the yardage in the size chart down below to figure out how many yards of yarn you need per size. Take the first yardage number and multiply it by how many stripes you want per color to figure out how many yard per color you will need. This blanket would also look great in just one solid color! Use the 2nd yardage number in the chart if you just want to use one color.

Yarn

For yarn I used Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek in the colors: Linen, Tobacco, Mustard, Ivory, and Spice. My blanket had 16 stripes so I used 4 of the colors 3 times and 1 color 4 times. I like Yarn Bee Soft & Sleek because it is soft, durable, and it comes in so many beautiful colors. You can use any medium (4) weight yarn that you’d like though! This blanket would also be a great project to use up scrap yarn since each stripe can use a different yarn/color.

King (110 x 110)33044 stripes (264 total rows)142 yards / 6,248 yards

For Row 1 you will work the amount of stitches that are listed above for your size. Then repeat the 6 row repeat until you reach the number of rows/stripes your size calls for.

To customize the size:

Width: For Row 1 work a multiple of 3 stitches. There are 3 stitches per inch so multiply the width measurement that you desire by 3 to get the total number of stitches to work across. Example: If you want your blanket to be 35” in width: 35 x 3 = 105 stitches.

Length: Each stripe (the Row 1-6 repeat) is 2.5” tall. Divide your desired length measurement by 2.5” to see how many stripes need to be worked to get your desired length. Example: If you want your blanket to be 50” in length. 50 ÷ 2.5 = 20 stripes (120 rows total).

Make a gauge swatch to ensure proper sizing.

Gauge

15 STs x 12 Rows = 5” x 5”

Follow the pattern instructions for Rows 1-12, working 15 STs across.

Notes

● Your stitch count will always be the same from Row 1 on. Check the size chart to see how many stitches across you need to work for your size.
● Beginning chains do not count as stitches throughout the whole pattern. At the end of each row, chain 1 and turn. Then work the first stitch into the last stitch from the previous row.
● Stitches between ** are to be repeated until the end of the row.
● The right side of your work will show the texture from the PSC and BLO stitches. The wrong side will be flat.

Special Stitches

Check out the video tutorial if extra assistance is needed for the special stitches.

FHDC – Foundation Half Double Crochet

A FHDC is working your foundation chain and first row of HDC’s together in one.

CH 2, yarn over and insert hook into 2nd CH from hook. Yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the 1st loop on the hook (that is the CH you will work into for the next stitch), yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook. That is the first FHDC. Now working into the CH you created at the bottom of the ST, work your next FHDC. *Yarn over, insert hook into the bottom CH, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through 1st loop on the hook, yarn over and pull through all 3 loops on your hook.* Repeat ** until you reach the specified length.

If needed, try using a stitch marker to mark where your first stich was made and/or where you created the CH to help know to work your next stitch.

SC BLO – Single Crochet Back Loop Only

When looking at the top of a stitch you will see 2 loops. The one closest to you is the front loop and the one furthest away from you is the back loop. For a SC BLO, work a single crochet as normal but only work in the back loop of the stitch.

PSC – Picot Single Crochet

Insert your hook into the designated stitch. Pull up a loop, yarn over, and pull through the 1st loop on your hook. Yarn over and pull through the 1st loop again. Yarn over and pull through the 1st loop once more. Yarn over and pull through both loops on your hook. Push the CH 3 you just created behind so that it bumps out on the right side of your work and work the next ST.
