Skill Level:

medium skill level requirement Intermediate

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crochet chain, single and double crochet. Instructions for puff and post stitches are included.
  • Read US crochet pattern abbreviations.

Pattern Description:

This rectangular stitch sampler is a twist on the traditional granny square pattern. It makes a great stroller or comfort blanket for a baby or small child.

The project uses different stitch patterns (a granny rectangle, an alternating v-stitch, staggered puff stitches, and an edging) to keep things interesting.

I've rated the pattern intermediate because it really helps if the crocheter is able to "read" her/his stitches when switching between the different patterns, but the stitch patterns are not very difficult.

The Rectangular Sampler Blanket was designed to create blankets for Project Night Night , the featured charity for Crochetville's A Tour Through Crochet Country blog tour for National Crochet Month 2013. Please consider donating one of your blanket projects to Project Night Night or a local children's charity.
