#Minion #Blanket, #crochet instructions, #pattern - updated!

This pattern is my first one and I beg your pardon if you find a mistakes in it. And I will be appreciating if you inform me about them.

I'm glad everyone like this blanket - it is fresh, nice and smiley!


Crocheting is not difficult and is suitable for beginners too.


If you qish you can add the project to your queue on Ravelry:

and

You can also take a look to my other project there and add them to your queue:

The blanket was for charity and I crochet it just without a pattern.
The measurements are app. 125/100 sm. But if you need another size you should calculate the size of blocks and depend f your yarn, to calculate the number of a stitches.
For that afghan I crochet 20 blocks – 7 yellow, 7 white and 6 blue. But if you prefer another diagram you may crochet a different number of color blocks.
I mean that – my joining diagram was that one:





And you may choose another kind of a blocks position like that:




  
Or like that:



And so on – you just need to crochet another number of color blocks.
First of all you need 3 basic colors + 1 for Minions overalls and for a border. Basic colors are white, yellow and blue + dark blue, black and grey.

App you need 160m for 2 blocks. I used Yarn Art’s Jeens – 45% acryl + 55 % cotton, 160 m for 50 grams.  The same yarn is Alize Cotton Gold and is more comfortable for work because it has 100gr yarn balls, 350 m.

I crochet it with hook 3.5mm and single crochet but you don’t need to and if I crochet it again I never use SC and 3.5mm hook again.
That’s why I advise you to crochet using HDC and 3.5 mm hook.
The gauge is not important for that blanket.

For that example size 125/100 sm and 4/5 blocks, with white and blue yarn, crochet blocks are made by this pattern:

1)        Ch 44, Hdc in a 3-rd chain, Hdc to the end, ch 2 and turn
2)        Hdc to the end, ch 2 and turn
3)        Repeat r2 (47) times or until you reach desired length, turn, do not fasten off
4)        Edging Rnd: Ch 1, 2 sc in first st, sc in next st, sc in every st to the corner, 3 sc in last st to create corner, work  sc evenly down side of square, beg by working across opposite side of foundation rep from * around, work 1 more sc in same st as beg sts, sl st to first st. Fasten off

About dark blue – yellow - black blocks (Minions):

1)      With dark blue yarn ch 44, hdc in a 3-rd chain, hdc to the end, ch 2 and turn
2)      Hdc to the end, ch 2 and turn
3)      Repeat r 2 (7) times
4)      Change the color – with yellow yarn repeat r2 28 times.
5)      Change the color – with black yarn repeat r2 5 times
6)      Change the color – with yellow yarn repeat r2 7 times. Turn, do not fasten off.
7)      Edging Rnd – use an yellow yarn about the yellow part and a dark blue for the dark blue part of a block: Ch 1, 2 sc in first st, sc in next st, sc in every st to the corner, 3 sc in last st to create corner, work  sc evenly down side of square, beg by working across opposite side of foundation rep from * around, work 1 more sc in same st as beg sts, sl st to first st. Fasten off

Joining the blocks:

Depends of diagram you choose, begin joining the blocks on the horizontal using only the dark blue yarn.
When you make these horizontal bars, join them on vertical using blue and yellow yarn.

*If you read the pattern before i've made a mistake and Anneloes Rotteveel - big thanks to her - correct the text :)



Minions Eyes:

For my blanket I crochet 10 rounded pieces for the eyes. Some of minions are with 1 or with 2 eyes.

Rnd 1: You may begin with 12 DC in a magic ring or Ch 3, 11Dc in 3-rd ch from a hook, SlSt in a first Dc to join. 
Rnd 2: ch
3, 2 Dc in each Dc around. Sl st in first Dc, to join. (24Dc) 
Rnd 3: ch
2, (Hdc in next Dc, 2 Hdc in next Dc) around. Sl st in first Dc, to join. (36 sc) 

Change with Grey yarn and continue crochet 1 Sc in every Hdc from a previous row. Sl St in first Hdc to join, end off. Weave the ends.

Black center of the eyes:

With black yarn you may crochet 12 DC in a magic ring or Ch 3, 11Dc in 3-rd ch from a hook, SlSt in a first Dc to join. End off. Weave the ends.

You need to attach black parts to the eyes with hot glue or sewing.  Attach black parts on the center or sideward of it.

When the crochet eyes become ready, attach them on the afghan blocks using hot glue or sewing.  




Nice crocheting and if you have more questions, please ask.
