Looking for a modern-style baby blanket but have you always admired the vintage style?

The best season for crocheting is coming. The colder days and longer evenings encourage you to spend more time in your favourite armchair with a crochet hook in hand. If there’s a fireplace in front of it, so much the better. It is the best time to try a Hopscotch Blanket inspired by the vintage filet blankets.

Tanya Eberhardt created the pattern in 2016. It combines a delicate texture and airy zig-zag waves. To make it more intriguing, you can add gradient colours in deference to your preferences.

A finished blanket measures approx. 30×35 inches (76×89 cm) but you can easily extend it to the size you need. The suggested yarn is DK light yarn, (11 wpi). Below we will see, what this blanket looks like in different chosen yarns and colorways.

Hopscotch Baby Blanket in Pastel Colors

The yarn used is this blanket Sirdar Snuggly DK in the following shades: Pastel Lemon, White, Pearly Pink, and Pearly Green and a 3.5mm hook (E/4). It’s very interesting how the zig zags of voids interplay with the different color bands.
