Almost Reversible Blanket


 By Hooked2yarn


This blanket is about 43x43 but gauge doesn’t really matter you can make it as big or little as you’d like.

I used 2 skiens of each pink, purple and white Red Hart WW yarn and an “I” hook, but one color at a time. 

Stitches to know:

SC=single crochet

DC=double crochet

Herringbone=YO, insert hook into indicated stitch, YO pull through and pull through 1st loop on hook (you may have to twist your hook), YO pull through last 2 loops on hook.

Color change, change color with the last stitch of the row.

Special note: Ch1 at the beginning does not count as stitch.


Row 1) CA (color A) ch110, or an even number to make the size you would like.


Row 2) This will be the right side of the blanket. Working in the back humps (these are the bumps on the back side of the chain) sc in 2nd hump, *dc in next hump, sc in next hump*, repeat to the end. You should end with 109 stitches ending in sc and change to color B. (109 stitches) Turn


Row 3) CB ch1, herringbone stitch (YO, insert hook into indicated stitch, YO pull through and pull through 1st loop on hook (you may have to twist your hook), YO pull through last 2 loops on hook, in same stitch as ch1. Herringbone in each stitch across. Change to color C. (109 stitches) Turn.


Row 4) CC, ch1, sc in same stitch, *dc in next stitch, sc in next stitch* repeat to end. Change to color B. (109 stitches). Turn


Row 5) Repeat row 3


Row 6) CA, ch1, sc in same stitch, *dc in next stitch, sc in next stitch*, repeat to end. Change color to color B (109 stitches). Turn


Row 7) Repeat row 3


Row 8) Repeat row 4


Repeat rows 6 – 8 until the blanket measures 43x43.


After the last CA row has been worked change to CB, sc to end, DO NOT TURN. Work 3sc in last stitch, turn to work sc down the side, in last stitch work 3 sc, turn to work bottom, sc in each stitch to end, work 3sc in last stitch, turn and work 3sc on last side. Join w/ a slip stitch and fasten off. Weave in any ends.

13 year old to old for hugs

Posted by hooked2yarn on April 27, 2013 at 7:25 AM Comments comments (0)

My 13 year old tells me today that she does not like hugs. This pretty much hurt because I am ALL about hugs.  I find myself asking, if she doesnt like hugs is she upset about something?  Will she tell me if she is?  I hope she doesnt push me away.  Later she falls and hurts her hand, first thing she does when I get to her...curled up in my arms for a hug.

Happy, happy, joy, joy!!!

My kids are not so little anymore

Posted by hooked2yarn on April 1, 2013 at 1:15 AM Comments comments (0)

My step son is now 20, and will be graduating from a culinary program this May.   I have known him since he was 4.  He said he is going to take the summer off from school and will go back in the fall.  I'm sure he will but it still makes me nervous.  Mostly because I never did & I want him to do better than his dad and I.

Our middle daughter is now 13 and has been invited to go to another state with her best friend and her family.  I completely trust this family, they are great people and teach their daughters the same values and morals as we try to teach our kids.  My problem is now with her going with them, its with her going period.  I'm jealous that we can not take her on a family vacation because of money, rather she is going to enjoy that time w/ another family.  Hubby says to let her go and experience it, my heart says thats my baby going so far away.  I'm slowly being talked into it because she is growing up.

Our youngest daughter is 11, 12 next month has a boyfriend (with our permission) and texts ALL the time ( I read them all & we talk about them)  Since the older one will be going w/ her friend we have to find something fun for the younger one.  We have decided on her going to the grandparents and friends house for those 2 weeks.  We have also talked about her taking a train since her sister will be flying. 

Like I said, they are getting so big and I need to start letting them live their lives but I dont want them hurt or anything in the process. 

Lhdc or Long half double crochet

Posted by hooked2yarn on January 20, 2013 at 1:20 AM Comments comments (0)

Long half double crochet = Lhdc

This Lhdc is called so because you are doing a hd in the stitch below the row you would normally do the hdc in.  This yarn was kinda hard to see but when working the moebius headwrap on row 3 you see the top stitches from the FPDC, you will insert hook in that go completely through both sides and finish the hdc.

I hope this made some sense.

Back post double crochet

Insert hook from the back side (inbetween stitches) around the front to the left side of the stitch.

YO, pull through, YO, pull through 2 loops, YO pull through last to loops.  Below is what the stitch looks like completed.

FPDC- front post double crochet

Front Post Double Crochet

I am hoping these instructions help understand FPDC a little bit.  Please excuse the dry hands, apparently I need lotion, haha.  Notice how the stitch goes “around the post” of the previous stitch?

To do this we are going to insert the hook in the gap next to the stitch you are going to go around. Insert the hook from the front, go to the back, make hook come back out to the front on the left side of the stitch


Once the hook is through on the front side complete like a double crochet, YO pull hook through and out the right side. YO pull through 2 loops, YO pull through last 2 loops.


Good luck~Hooked2yarn

One day while at work I got an email from a friend.  Attached was this link.  Since its the same name as mine I thought it was very interesting.  I am sharing it with you because I have incorperated it into a hat, which is now one of my favorites.


Have fun and let me know if you have any questions.

Mobius headwrap pattern

Posted by hooked2yarn on January 8, 2013 at 3:35 AM Comments comments (107)


Stitches to know-

Hdc-half double crochet 

FPDC-front post double crochet  

BPDC-back post double crochet

LHdc-Long half double crochet

I used Red Hart WW yarn with an I hook

Ch 60 and join

Row 1) Turn chain slightly so the "bump" of the chain is showing ontop, ch1, Hdc in each bump of the chain.  Do not join.  (see photo below)

When you get to the top of the hdc, you will turn it toward you 180 degrees so the first hdc is upside-down and work hdc in each chain on the reverse side.  (This will put the natural twist in the headwrap).

Row 2) Ch 2, FPDC (YO, insert hook in on right side of previous hdc around to the left side of hdc -your hook should be "behind" the hdc stitch- YO, pull through 2 loops, YO pull through last 2 loops).  FPDC around each hdc until you reach the ch2, then join.

Row 3) Turn work, ch2, Lhdc (YO, insert hook in top of previous hdc, YO and pull through all 3 loops).  Lhdc in each stitch around and join beg ch 2.

Row 4-7) repeat rows 2 & 3.

I do give permission make and sell what you make as long as you give me credit for the pattern.  Thank you, Alicia from Hooked2yarn @2013
