  • The blanket I made was stitched in 3 sections. Due to the large amount of bobbins needed for the lettering, I did the “HOPPY” and “HOLIDAYS” banners separately from the main blanket.
  • You can crochet the full blanket as one piece if you choose to, the full graph will be below.

Edging and Joining

If you choose to make your blanket in 3 panels like I did, single crochet evenly around each panel. I placed 3 stitches in each “block”, and one extra single crochet in each corner to turn.

I used

  • red for “hoppy”
  • green for “holidays”
  • blue for the main panel

To join the panels, I used the zipper join, with the right sides of the panels facing up.

Using white yarn, stating with a slip knot, slip stitch (sl st) the sides together through the center loops only. Insert your hook from the top down on both sides of the join. It is a little awkward, but makes a beautiful join. Make sure your sl st are nice a loose.

Once both panels are attached, or if you stitched the blanket as 1 piece switch to blue yarn and half double crochet (hdc) in each stitch around, with 3 hdc in the corner stitch.   When you reach the join, place 1 hdc in each corner stitch already occupied by the zipper join.

For the final round, switch back to white yarn and loosely slip stitch around the edge.
