Primrose temperature blanket pattern.

Primrose temperature blanket pattern. published on Geen reacties op Primrose temperature blanket pattern.

Since I started this temperature blanket in the beginning of January I received several request for the pattern. I think it was in 2010 or 2011 that I first created this specific hexagon with the puff stitch as a second row, representing a flower. I used autumn coloured yarn then.This is what the small blanket that I made looked like:

So when I wanted to make a temperature blanket and I saw a lovely blanket made with hexagons I could not resist and use this old pattern again. Since I added it in the past as a free pattern it will stay that way.

Because this is a temperature blanket I will show you how I choose the colours. First I check the temperature of the day before. Then I write the maximum and minumim temperatur in my notebook. I look at the temps on the chart I made and grab the yarn I need.

  

The pattern: (I use UK crochet abbreviations)Row 1:

Create a Magic loop and crochet  3 chain stitches that represents the first treble stitch, crochet 11 more treble crochet stitches in the Magic loop. (see You Tube tutorials for the Magic loop) Join into the 3rd chain of the 3 chain stitch that represents the first treble.

  Row 2:

There are several good tutorials on You Tube for the puff stitch. I memorise it like this:

Pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull up a loop, yarn over hook, pull through all loops. Crochet 3 chain stitches in a space between 2 trebles and make 2 puff stitch loops, crochet together. Crochet a chain stitch. Crochet a puff stitch with 3 yarn over loops in the same space between 2 trebles.

Repeat pattern:

*Skip 2 trebles, make a puff stitch with 3 yarn over loops in the space between 2 trebles. Chain 1. Make a puff stitch with 3 yarn over loops in the same space. *

Repeat between * until end of row and join into 1st puff stitch.

        

Row 3:

Create a chain stitch in the space between 2 puff stitches and crochet 1 treble in the same space.*Create 2 trebles in the next space between 2 ‘petals’ of the puff stitch. Make 2 chain stitches and create 2 trebles in the same space between 2 ‘petals’. Create 2 trebles in the next space.* Repeat between * until the end of the row.

  

Join into the 3rd chain of the 3 chain stitch that represents the first treble.

Row 4:

Joining the hexagons. This is optional: you can either sew them together or join them in any other way but I prefer this way because I like the texture of the hexagons. If you sew them or join them afterwards, just repeat Row 3 with an extra 2 trebles on each of the 6 sides of the hexagon.

Start in a space before the corner trebles, see picture where I created 2 treble clusters before the corner. Make 3 chainstitches and 1 treble in the same space. Make another cluster of trebles in the next space between the clusters of trebles of the previous row. Make 2 trebles around the chainstitches of the corner of the previous row.

Join with the previous row by placing the yarn as seen in the picture and pull through the space of the previous hexagon. Make a double crochet around the chain stitches of the adjacent  hexagon as shown in the below picture.

Make a chain stitch.

Make 2 trebles in the same corner space. Join with the adjacent hexagon by making a double crochet around the space of 2 treble clusters of the adjacent hexagon.

*Make 2 trebles in the next space between 2 treble clusters and join to the adjacent hexagon*, repeat between * once. Then you have reached another corner, crochet this the same as the first corner. Please note that this time you can make a double crochet stitch around each chain stitch space in the corners of the adjacent hexagons. Keep joining and making trebles until you have reached the section where the adjacent hexagon does not need to be joined and finish the row as you did the previous row.

Join into the 3rd chain of the 3 chain stitch that represents the first treble.

    

If you make the blanket as I do, you create diagonal rows. Look carefully at the placement of my hexagons and you’ll see where to join the hexagons to create the same.

I hope you enjoy making this hexagon! I would love to see what you make, you can always tag me on Instagram: @Sassy_Sheep or on Ravelry as SassySheepNL.

See ya!
