This pattern was one of those ‘oh, I love this speckled yarn. What can I make with it’ moments. I bought the yarn and had absolutely no idea what I was going to do with it. I got home and looked through my yarn stash to see what colors would all go with it and it hit me, I wanted to make a blanket with bright colored polka dots all over it. So, introducing my Polka Dot Blanket!

I couldn’t be any happier with how the finished blanket turned out! It’s absolutely perfect!

Things you will need:


  • ch = chain

  • Sl st = slip stitch

dc5tog –

Yarn Over (YO), insert hook, YO, pull back through, YO, pull through two loops, *YO, insert hook into SAME space as before, YO, pull back through, YO pull through 2 loops. Repeat from * 3 more times. YO and pull through all 6 loops.

Notes –

  • Begin working single crochet in the 2nd chain from your hook
  • You should have 120 stitches at the end of every row
  • MC = main color which is fruit salad
  • CC = Contrast color Which will alternate between turquoise, yellow & hot rose

With MC, ch 121 st

Row 1 – 8: (MC) sc 120

Row 9: (MC) sc 10, (CC) sc 4, * (MC) sc 12, (CC) sc 4* repeat * to * 5 more times, (MC) sc 10

Row 10: (MC) sc 9, (CC) sc 6, * (MC) sc 10, (CC) sc 6 * repeat * to * 5 more times, (MC) sc 9

Repeat rows 1 – 16, 6 more times alternating the contrast color every repeat.  I done the following order –

  • Turquoise
  • Hot Rose

You could easily keep repeating and make a bigger blanket.

Border –

With MC evenly sl st around all of the edges of the blanket, placing 2 sc in each corner, sl st into 1st st when you reach back to where you started.

With hot rose, sl st anywhere around the edge of the blanket.  

* Ch 3, in the first ch of those ch 3’s work a dc5tog, sl st into 5 st * repeat * to * all the way around the border of the blanket.  Sl st when you reach the beginning.  

Cut your yarn. Weave in all ends.
