Massif Blanket | Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Jul 31


A massif, or a compact group of mountains, is the perfect depiction of this not-so-little blanket. Have fun with lots of colors, or use just a couple for a more minimal look. Regardless of your style, this blanket will be a welcomed addition to any WIP pile, and an added comfort to any home.


Materials:

  • 6 skeins of WeCrochet Brava Worsted in Silver (MC), or approximately 1250 yards of any main color

  • One skein each of WeCrochet Brava Speckle in Plummy (C1), Just Peachy (C2), Tidal (C3), Rosebud (C4), Snow Day (C5), and Salt and Pepper (BC) or approximately 200 yards each of 5 contrasting colors

  • Size H (5.00 mm) crochet hook

  • Scissors and Yarn Needle for finishing

  • Ruler to check gauge if desired

Gauge:

It is not necessary to achieve a certain gauge for this blanket. However, if you are limited on yarn or want the same dimensions as the sample I suggest checking.

  • The ch 4 at the beginning of each row counts as one double crochet and ch 1.

  • The “space” is classified as the area between two double crochet clusters. Note that the space before/after the initial ch 4 count as well.

Continue


Repeat Rows 9-22 four more times, or until the blanket reaches your desired length. Be sure to substitute CC1 with your next CC color.


f/o, weave in any and all ends


Proceed to Border Instructions





Border:

The border is completely optional, but adds a fun finishing touch. Follow the instructions below, or create your personal favorite border!


Using BC


Join yarn to any double crochet space along either side of the blanket. *work 3 dc sts into the dc space, work 1 dc in the ch 4 space* until you reach the corner. Work [3 dc, ch 3, dc] into the corner. For the top/bottom, work a Row 2 repeat. Repeat this until you have worked around the entire blanket.



Pom-Poms


Pom-Poms add the cutest finishing touch to this blanket! I attached a pom to each point and corner, using BC. I recommend the smallest pom-pom maker in this set, but feel free to make them any size. Note that any changes made to the pom-pom size will affect the required yardage.


After attaching the poms, weave in any ends. Enjoy your beautiful blanket!
