Anchor Baby Blanket

An easy and free C2C crochet nautical inspired baby blanket.

Beware: this post may contain pirates, plunders and puns.

Whale hello there!  I am so excited to share this spe-shell Anchor baby blanket with you.  This blanket was designed for a little mate and his nautical nursery.  As a mom of girls I am a sucker for anything boy: plaid, cars, construction, nautical – it all makes me swoon.  In my opinion there is nothing better than a classic style and the nautical theme built around navy, textured ropes and wood is perfection.  Then you add in a poop deck and sprinkled in a fun pop of yellow … hello sailor, I am sold!

Anchor Baby Blanket Graph

This graph is completed with 40×40 pixels or boxes created with the C2C crochet method.  If you haven’t tried the corner to corner method yet, then oh buoy are you in for a treat.  There are many helpful youtube tutorials out there on the high seas to help get you started, and one day I will brave the storm and upload my first video tutorial, but until then check out this great one at The Crochet Crowd, it covers everything you need to know.   You can start your project in any corner that makes sense to you, I personally started in the bottom left corner.Anchored Graph

WORD CHART for the Anchor Baby Blanket:

Even numbers are worked down and odd numbers are worked up, I also started the word chart in the bottom left corner of the graph.

FINISHING

ROUND 1:  Start with any corner and attach your yellow yarn in between the first two C2C pixels or boxes on your left, CH2 and 1SC into the point of the corner.  CH2 and 1SC into the same point.  CH2 and 1SC into the next space between pixels, Continue CH2 and 1SC into each gap all the way around the blanket.  In each corner 1SC into the point CH2 and 1 SC into the same point. SL ST into your beginning stitch.

ROUND 2: SL ST into the first CH2 space of one side and CH3.  2DC into the same CH2 space.  3DC in every CH2 around the blanket.  In each corner 3DC, CH2, and 3DC.  SL ST into the top of your first CH3.

ROUND 3: SL ST two times to start on the top of the first group of three DCs.  CH 1 and DC10 into the corner CH2 space. SK3 and 1SC into the gap between 3DCs.  SK3 and place 5DC into the next gap.  Continue all around the blanket with 5DC scallops along all sides and 10DC scallops in each corner.  SL ST to the beginning CH1.  Tie off yarn … maybe with a little naut?

If you are still deciding on a nursery theme for a little mate, I highly recommend following the pier pressure and creating a classic nautical design.  The Anchor Baby Blanket will be a perfect jumping off place.  It is time to wrap this post up, because I am o-fish-ally out of nautical puns. I hope you seas the day and smash some crochetgoals.
