Maybelle Baby Blanket Pattern

Hi my lovelies. The washing and blocking of my Maybelle Baby Blanket is done. I'm so happy with the outcome of this blanket and so excited to share the pattern with you.

As you all know, the Maybelle Flower pattern belongs to 6ichthusfish, so this pattern of the Maybelle Baby Blanket, will be a little bit more like a Tutorial-Pattern to protect her rights.

I have divided this project into 4 different segments and every segment can easily be made in one week, spending a casual 1-2 hours a day of crocheting. That means this blanket can be ready within 4-5 weeks, in a casual pace. That is fabulous! And to avoid this blog post to get tooooo long and in need of endless scrolling, I have decided to share links to each segment in this blog post. Enjoy!

Swedish version of the Maybelle Baby Blanket can be found here.

 Here are the different segments with links to tutorials:
• Making Maybelle Flowers
• Making Maybelle flowers into Maybelle Squares
• Arranging & Joining your Maybelle Squares
• Making the Border & Edging

Maybelle Baby Blanket Pattern

ABOUT THE PATTERN
The baby blanket is made up from 30 Maybelle Squares in 6 different colors, being 5 squares wide and 6 squares long. It is joined with a contrasting color and later framed with a border and edging.

MEASUREMENTS
Finished blanket measures approx. 30 x34 inches/ 76 x 87 cm.

YARN
14 balls (50g) of Tilda yarn (Sports Weight / 4ply, 50g approx 150m/164yards). I have used:

4 x 005 - Cream
4 x 507 - Chalk Beige
1 x 063 - Berry Pink
1 x 541 - Chalk Pink
1 x 066 - Dusty Blue
1 x 572 - Baby Blue
1 x 025 - Brown Melange
1 x 535 - Chalk Yellow

Maybelle Blanket TILDA Yarn Kit available here.

TOOLS NEEDED
- Crochet hook 3.00 mm or adjusted to your tension.
- Darning needles to weave in ends
- Scissors

GOOD TO KNOW
If you are planning on making a different size keep in mind that cotton blankets tend to get heavy. I would use another type of yarn for a a King Size bed spread for sure. Also, to give you an idea of the yarn use this is what I have measured (depending on your tension of course...):
• Every flower takes approx. 5 g of yarn
• Every added square takes approx. 5 g of yarn
• Every joined square takes approx. 5 g of yarn
• The border takes approx. 15 g of each stripe and 25 g of joining color.
