Centerpoint Crochet Blanket Free Pattern

It’s pattern time!

Here you’ll find the free pattern for my Centerpoint blanket, made with Scheepjes Organicon in mind. You can substitute for Scheepjes Cotton 8 or Catona Denim which have similar weights and yardage, or any Scheepjes yarns in fact. You’ll just need to consider the quantities needed when substituting.

I just so happen to have a bonus pattern with this motif coming your way using Scheepjes Chunky Monkey, so that will be a great option for you too – a way to make a comparable blanket a lot faster as the motifs are four times the size!

Get The Yarn

Scheepjes has the complete list of stockists available on their website, at scheepjes.com. If your favourite retailer doesn’t have Organicon, you can always ask them to get it in – don’t be shy!

Wool Warehouse* ships globally (with some small delays due to C-19), so you can pick it up there.

I say it all the time: Caro’s Atelier* is my local yarn store, so I would also love you to support them. They ship all over Europe.

Black Sheep Wools* is one of the best bricks and mortar stores in the UK, and they’ll also ship to you.

MC main colour
CC contrast colour
Ch2-sp chain 2 space: number denotes number of chains in chain space

Notes

This pattern is worked back and forth in diagonal rows, in the C2C style.
You are instructed to ch2 at the beginning of each C2C stitch repeat, this keeps the blocks more compact. However, if you prefer to ch3, you can do that too.
Make your motifs in the following quantities:
CC1: 12
CC2: 20
CC3: 28
CC4: 36
CC5: 44
CC6: 28
CC7: 24


Tip:
Weave in your ends as you go! Each motif will have 6 ends, and it will save you a lot of time at the end if they are all woven in as you go.

Assembly

to illustrate the layout of the motifs of the centerpoint blanket

Once you have made all of your motifs, we can assemble the blanket.
Lay the motifs out in the configuration as per the graphic below, ensuring that your MC strips point toward the centre. Start with CC1 in the centre, and work outwards, with CC6 and CC7 at the ends only to create the rectangle.

Join the rows of the motifs by taking row 1 (CC7) and folding it over to lay face down on row 2 (CC6) and zip across the motif using a slip stitch through the outside loops of each motif. This creates an invisible join on the front, and an interesting join on the back. You can also hold the squares flat, wrong side facing your and work through the front loops of both squares.
Work 3 sts in each treble repeat (block) and 3 sts along the posts of the trebles, making sure it’s not too tight or too loose. There should still be some movement if you try to stretch the joined motifs because the C2C motif drapes beautifully. Repeat for all rows.

I found it easiest to join rows 1 and 2, then 3 and 4, 5 and 6, 7 and 8, 9 and 10, 11 and 12, 13 and 14 then finally 15 and 16 to each other. Then I joined each set of 2 rows to one another, then the sets of 4 rows, and finally you’ll zip the two halves together. Once all the rows are joined, you can rotate the blanket and zip down each un-joined column. See image below:

Border

Work in rounds once the motifs are assembled.
Round 1 With MC, ss to any corner which has a Ch2 start. Ch1, (dc, ch2, dc) in the ch2 at the corner, [(ch2, miss tr set of 3 trebles, dc in sp between sets), rep to corner, (dc, ch2, dc) in ch-sp at corner (or in last tr if no ch2-sp)]. Rep to end, ss to join
Round 2 ch2, [(tr, ch2, tr) in corner ch2-sp, 3tr in each ch2-sp to corner], rep around to end, ss to join.
Round 3 ch1, 3dc, [(dc, ch2, dc) in corner ch2-sp, dc to corner], rep to end, ss to join.
Round 4 ch2, 4dcblo, [(dc, ch2, dc) in corner ch2-sp, dcblo to corner] repeat to end, ss to join, cut yarn.
