The Cheerful Circles Blanket, Free Pattern

Hello everyone.

I’m feeling pretty happy tonight that I’ve created this pattern and will now be sharing it with you for FREE. This is by way of a BIG THANK YOU to you all, for your support and encouragement over the past few months, since I embarked on this pattern writing lark.

It’s a cute little blanket in uproariously bright colours which I made a few months ago for Project Linus. If you don’t know what Project Linus is all about, have a look on their website – http://www.projectlinusuk.org.uk or the U.S. site – http://www.projectlinus.org.

In a nutshell they collect patchwork quilts, and knitted or crocheted blankets to give to children who are in hospital. They comfort the little ones during their stay, and then they can take them back home with them. I’ve put more details in the pattern for you to read.

Anyway, this stupid pandemic and lockdown prevented me from being able to hand the blanket over in the Spring, so I thought that now I would take some photos and write up a pattern before I part with it, hopefully soon.

It’s a good size for a child’s bed or a sofa throw to snuggle under while watching TV or even as a cover for a wheelchair user.

The yarn is Stylecraft Special DK, which I’m sure you know is 100% acrylic and easily machine washable.

It’s made up of circles in squares, joined together with my own Side to Side Slip Stitch join. (Pop back to my home page to find a blogpost with a video tutorial for this super easy join). The borders are simple stripes in Half trebles, so all in all a nice straightforward pattern for all abilities.

So without further ado, here is the pdf pattern for you to download

Happy cheerful crocheting! xx

I’ve been involved in textile design and embroidery for many years, and recently become passionate about crochet too. I was originally an art teacher and embroidery tutor, then created a small business publishing greeting cards. It became a successful family partnership and we are finally handing the reins over to our daughter and stepping back a little. Now is the time for me to enjoy exploring and learning -and sharing - all that this wonderful world of textiles can offer me.

  1. So wonderfully cheerful for anyone to receive. I’m sure the lovely coloured circles would appeal to any child and look great on a single bed! That’s so kind of you to share the pattern!

    1. Hi Pam
      You will need to have a pdf reader installed on your computer or mobile device. Adobe Acrobat is a free app you can get from the app store.
      If you already have one, let me know and I’ll try to think of something else.
