Yarn Stash Series – The Larksfoot Crochet Stitch Blanket

It’s been an absolute age but here I am again, with a swanky new look to the website and a new addition to The Yarn Stash Series – The Larksfoot Crochet Stitch Blanket.

I’ve been busy working away over the last year since having our beautiful little boy Elliot, luckily he likes his sleep so nap times have been very productive!

So, the latest free pattern to add to the series is an absolute classic of a stitch. The Larksfoot crochet stitch gives the blanket the most gorgeous drape without being too gappy and is so fast to make!

The pattern PDF is available free in my stores but it’s also here for you to enjoy too.

If, like me, you love making blankets but you’re a beginner and not sure where to start then I have 6 easy crochet blanket patterns for beginners that you might enjoy. It talks all about yarn choices, hooks and much more to set you in the right direction.

About the Larksfoot Crochet Stitch Blanket

I think that you can really have fun with this one by playing around with the colour combinations. Have a raid of your stash and see what you can come up with!

I grabbed this combination in just a few seconds and instantly knew they would work together. I didn’t have as much yarn in some of the colours so just used them as accents and was so pleased with how well that worked.

It shows you don’t always have to have an even repeat of colours to make things cohesive and feel right. I also love the vintage nod it has without feeling old. 

The Yarn

As with everything in the Yarn Stash Series I’m using a combination of treasures I found in my stash. This blanket needs about 400g and I’ve found as close a colour match of Stylecraft Special DK as I can to make life easier for you if you like my choices.

You will need one ball of each –

Storm Blue 1722, Gold 1709, Tomato 1723, Sherbet 1034, Saffron 1081, Pomegranate 1083, Lime 1712

I made this blanket long before Elliot was born not ever planning to use it for his room but now it takes pride of place in there and he loves it.

The Simple Cable Stitch

It’s a really easy stitch but slightly different from a traditional cable stitch as you only work across the stitches to create the cable and not into the skipped stitch.

The Cabbage Patch Stitch

The stitch is a really simple 2 row repeat that creates a beautiful lace-like texture with the most gorgeous drape and feel.
