Crochet pattern

Larksfoot section 1 (Rows 35-44)

The Larksfoot stitch is a fun way to blend colours. The middle stitch of every Larksfoot is crocheted two rows below, creating a smooth transition when made in a blanket or pillow. The stitch consists of chains and double crochets, so it’s really simple. Let’s get started!

Row 35 (WS) Join Colour G with a ss in first st, ch3 (counts as first dc), 3dc, *ch1, skip 1 st, 3dc; repeat from * another 57 times, ch1, 4dc, cut yarn, turn. [182 dc, 59 ch-1 spaces]

Row 36 (RS) Join Colour M with a ss in first st, ch3 (counts as first dc), 1dc, ch1, skip 1 st, *1dc, 1dc in skipped st of Row 34 (this is what I call a ‘dropped dc’), 1dc, ch1, skip 1 st; repeat from * another 58 times, 2dc, turn. [59 dropped dc’s in Row 34, 122 dc, 60 ch-1 spaces]

One dropped dc and the dc’s on either side form a Larksfoot stitch. In the next row you will crochet dc’s in all dc’s of Row 36. Basically, you’re continuing the pattern but without the dropped stitch. The chain spaces that you’re creating in Rows 36 and 37 form the basis for the next row of Larksfoot stitches.

Row 37 (WS) Ch3 (counts as first dc), 1dc, ch1, skip ch-1 space, *3dc, ch1, skip ch-1 space; repeat from * another 58 times, skip final ch-1 space, 2dc, cut yarn, turn. [181 dc, 60 ch-1 spaces]

Row 38 (RS) Join Colour N with a ss in first st, ch3 (counts as first dc), *1dc, 1dc in ch-1 space in Row 36, 1dc, ch1, skip 1 st; repeat from * another 58 times, 1dc, 1dc in ch-1 space 2 rows below, 2dc, turn. [60 dropped dc in Row 36, 122 dc, 59 ch-1 spaces]

Row 39 (WS) Ch3 (counts as first dc), 3dc, ch1, skip ch-1 space, *3dc, ch1, skip ch-1 space; repeat from * another 57 times, 4dc, cut yarn, turn. [182 dc, 59 ch-1 spaces]

Row 40 (RS) Join Colour O with a ss in first st. Repeat the pattern set in Row 36 and crochet Larksfoot stitches in the chain spaces of Row 38, turn. [60 dropped dc in Row 38, 122 dc, 59 ch-1 spaces]

Row 41 (WS) Repeat Row 37, cut yarn, turn. [181 dc, 60 ch-1 spaces]

In the next row, try to work into the chains of the chain spaces rather than in the chain spaces. This looks more even.

Row 42 (RS) Join Colour A with a ss in first st, ch1, 1hdc in same st, 1hdc in next st, 1hdc in ch-1 space, *3hdc, 1hdc in ch-1 space; repeat from * another 58 times, 2hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 43 (WS) 241hdc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 44 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]

Puff Stitch section 1 (Rows 45-48)

Puff stitches are the third way to create ‘bumps’ in your blanket, next to popcorns and bobbles. These stitches resemble bobbles, but instead of almost finishing each stitch in the bobble, you make yarn overs to create more volume. It results in a smaller, denser and puffier stitch (hence, puff stitch).

Row 45 (WS) Join Colour P with a ss in first st, begin-puff st in same st, *ch1, skip 1 st, puff stitch; repeat from * another 118 times, ch1, skip 1 st, 1dc in last stitch, turn. [1 begin-puff stitch, 119 puff stitches, 120 ch, 1 dc]

If you look closely to your stitches, you can see that the chains you’re crocheting look like they’re laying on top of the puff stitches!

Row 46 (RS) Ch3 (counts as first dc), puff stitch in first ch-1 space, *ch1, skip 1 st, puff stitch in next ch-1 space; repeat from * another 118 times, 1dc in last puff stitch, cut yarn, turn. [120 puff stitches, 119 ch, 2 dc]

Row 47 (WS) Join Colour A with a ss in first dc, ch1, 1hdc in same st, *1hdc in next puff stitch, 1hdc in next ch; repeat from * another 118 times, 1hdc in final puff stitch, 1hdc in last dc, ch1, turn. [241 hdc]

Row 48 (RS) 241hdc, cut yarn, turn. [241 hdc]
