Loving Hands Cellular Baby Blanket –Charity Crochet Pattern

Here is a quick and easy crochet pattern for a cellular baby blanket.
 176-7683_IMG
Measurements: 18” x 18”
Materials: 5.5mm hook, Double Knitting Yarn, 75g
Tension/Gauge: 6 sts (ch) 1 “ x 2 rows (dc) 1.5”
Cellular construction for greater insulation and breathability. This basic pattern could be scaled up to use as a pram blanket, cot blanket or a lap rug.
Pattern
Ch 81,
dc into 3rd chain from hook, *ch 1, dc 1*, ** rep to end, turn.
Repeat these rows until required length is achieved. Here I worked 31 rows.
Sew all ends in.
The blanket doesn’t require an edging but here I used a simple scallop edging.
5 dc into one of the cellular holes, sc into the top of the next dc, repeat all the way around.
