Multi Hearts Modern Tapestry Crochet Baby Blanket Pattern

I'm not usually a heart person. It's not my style. But my multi hearts blanket is too sweet not to love. And HELLO neons and neutrals?! #thankyousomuch

Below is the tutorial/pattern for this blanket that I hope you will love. If you need any clarification on any of the instructions below, feel free to leave a comment or email me at thefadedpineapple[at]gmail.com. Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!


What you'll need:
  • 3+ skeins of I Love this Yarn in Light Gray for the main color (any worsted weight yarn will work, however, you may need more yarn or not as much as what I list here). Start with 3 skeins, you might need a 4th one.
    • Using a yarn ball winder or another manual method (see my tutorial here to wind a center pull yarn ball with your hands) wind 4 bigger double stranded center pull yarn balls and 3 smaller double stranded center pull yarn balls. (TIP: I used a flat food scale to help me make my yarn balls. While this was super helpful it isn't necessary, eyeballing it is just fine!)
  • 4 skeins of I Love this Yarn in Blue Multi for the accent color (SIDENOTE: If you're using a SOLID color from this brand, you shouldn't need more than 2 skeins. The yardage on solid skeins is significantly more than the multi/striped/ombre yarns from this line).
    • Make 3 bigger double stranded center pull yarn balls and 3 smaller double stranded center pull yarn balls.
  • Size US 15 (10mm) crochet hook
  • Something to sort your yarn strands. I use a laundry basket that has holes in it, I found it on clearance at Wal-Mart. I've also seen people using small bins with holes in it, something like this.
  • Scissors
  • Darning needle/tapestry needle (something to weave your ends in)

How to make your blanket bigger. (And final thoughts about this pattern.)

Before the fix.
Turn your blanket so that the WRONG SIDE faces up. Proceed to the directions in the image below.



Row 1: SC in every CHAIN SPACE of this first row. Chain 1 and turn. 
Rows 2-8: Chain 1 and turn, SC in every STITCH (make sure you're not crocheting in to the chain space for the remaining rows) across.
To finish, after you make your last SC, chain one, cut a four inch tail and pull it through and tight to fasten it off. Weave in your tail.

The original HELLO blanket I made, I did add a border but I decoded not to for the second blanket. If you want to add a border, start in the middle of a row (the top or the bottom). SC all the way around your blanket making sure to sc three times in each corner and then slip stitch in to the first SC, tie it off and weave in your tail. When going down the sides of your blanket, make sure you have the same amount of SCs on each side.



Guys, we're done! HOO-FREAKING-RAY. What did you guys think? I mean, besides my mistake oh and the fact that we needed more yarn. Sigh. I still loved making this blanket and I'm already excited for my next one. As always, leave me any questions in the comments and if you post your work in IG please tag me so I can ooh and aah over your bad ass crocheting skills. Insert fist bump emoji.

Until next time,
Rina.







Part 3. And a big fat OOPS.

At last, we've arrived at the final rows over this blanket. Hooray! You're probably realizing now that you'll need another skein of your main color. My apologies. You're probably also realizing that your blanket seems a little short. Insert painful face emoji. After I threw a tantrum for five minutes shouting to the crochet gods, "WHY?! WHY ME?!" I put my thinking cap on and figured out a way to fix this. Which, now I feel silly for aforementioned tantrum. Sigh.

So, I will post part 4 of this blanket this weekend and I promise it's easy and in time we'll all look back at this and we'll laugh. Insert questionable emoji.

Hell...o.


It's May! I love the month of May. First, it's my birthday month. Second, it's Mother's Day month. Lastly, it's basically summer. Eek! Oh, I also (finally) opened my Etsy store. Hooray! Alright, let's get on with party two of this crochetalong.



Before you begin:
You're two main color yarn balls might be totally uneven with one being way bigger than another way. Pay attention to that! For the rows between letters, make sure you're crocheting with the bigger yarn ball. A note on the letter "E", you’re going to carry your main color yarn through the color changes of the letter "E". It doesn’t matter which main color yarn you use, you can even alternate, it doesn’t matter. Let's continue on with the pattern:

Row 30: Chain 1 and turn, SC in next 21 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 3 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 21 stitches

Rows 31: Chain 1 and turn, SC in next 21 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 3 stitches, change color, SC in next 4 stitches, change color, SC in next 21 stitches

Row 32: Repeat row 30

Row 33: Repeat row 31, cut a 4 inch tail of your main color and accent color

Rows 34-37: Chain 1 and turn, SC across and over the 4 inch tails you cut in the previous row

Rows 38-41: Repeat row 11 (in this post)

Row 42: Chain 1 and turn, SC in the next 36 stitches (make sure you crochet over your accent color to carry it to the next color change), before you change colors make sure you pull on your accent color to smooth out any lumps, change color SC in next 4 stitches, change color SC in next 21 stitches

Row 43: Chain 1 and turn, SC in the next 21 stitches, change color SC in next 4 stitches, change color SC i next 36 stitches

Row 44: Repeat row 42

Row 45: Repeat row 43 However, you are going to cut a 4 inch tail of the first main color and then the accent color. You will crochet over these tails in row 46.

Rows 46-49: Repeat row 34-37

Rows 50-57: Repeat row 38-45

I hope everything is going smoothly for you so far. If not, drop a comment below or feel free to shoot me an email thefadedpineapple[at]gmail.com. Have a great week!
