FREE PATTERN: The “Pure Shores” blanket

So here it is: The ocean, beach, waves, summer inspired “Pure Shores” blanket.

Highly adaptable to your own needs. There is a little photo tutorial and I did my best to do a little video that those of us who are visual learners also can crochet this blanket. I really hope that the video does not leave you with more questions than answers.

If you want to support my work there is a ready to print PDF version HERE ON RAVELRY. The pattern is available in US, UK and German terms. Even if you do not want to buy the pattern it would be nice of you if you would give the pattern a “like” there if you like it.

A big, big thank you to @sunshineyalex (on Instagram) for testing and creating a wonderful version in these colors of SCHEEPJES CAHLISTA. (505, 402, 528, 247, 261, 508, 113, 520)

As usual her test is just perfect and as a lefty she creates waves in the opposite directions….

You can find your local Scheepjes Dealer or Favorite Scheepjes Online Shop HERE.

If you use my patterns and post pictures in social medias it would be nice to link or refer to my blog: martinupnorth.com and use #martinupnorth. Feedback is more than welcome.

Enough talk, let´s crochet

Pattern Notes

  • Read the whole pattern before you start.
  • Ch1 or ch2 at beg of row does not count as st. First dc or hdc is always worked in same stitch as ch1 or ch2.
  • The pattern is based on a multiple of 4 stitches (plus1 in starting ch) in width.
  • With a ch145 you should be able to crochet every color section with one ball. Except the first and the last section which has more rows in one color.
  • The ch4 in row 5 is anchored around the first ch of the previous ch4-sp after you turned work while working the row. (see pic.1), except for the first ch4 which is anchored in the 3rd hdc of the row.

  • the 3rd loop of the hdc lies in front of the back and front loop, so to say under the stitch. (see pic. 2)
  • In row 7 you work in the dcs of row 6 which are behind the 7dc waves. You crochet through the bl of the second dc of the 7dc wave and the dc behind every fourth dc. (see pic. 3)

  • to get a good, even spread of stitches in the first round of the border on the long sides it is recommended to do 9 stitches in the first color A part (including corner stitch), 6 stitches in every other color part and 11 stitches in the last color a part (including the corner stitch). On the other long side of the border the stitch count is the other way around)

  1. What a lovely design and of course I had to buy it. The video is excellent though there seem to be some language problems in the names of stitches. Not a problem as long as you follow the video carefully.

    I’ve been looking for another blanket design and this is it! Thank you for your hard work.

  6. Hi Martin
    Thank you for a lovely pattern.
    I have a question about Row 6. The instruction says to work one dc in third loop but the video shows you doing a dc in almost every stitch. Please advise with this.
