Crochet Tippy Toes Blanket

Crochet Tippy Toes Blanket


Welcome back to The Crochet Crowd as well as my friends over at yarnspirations.com. I’m your host Mikey and today is the Tippy Toes Crochet Baby Blanket. This is a really neat concept in order for you to be able to do it. Almost a little bit of texture but also some fun ideas with the stitches. It works in sets of two rows in order to have that the full look of this particular one. You really don’t get a sense of what this looks like when you’re looking at it from this photograph but once you see the diagram you’re gonna see that it’s going to be really quite amazing. So um, face down on this thing it looks completely different than what you are seeing right here. So let’s say I take a look at the diagram. Let’s see what we’re gonna get ourselves involved with today. So on page number two, we have the diagram and what we have here is that it works in sets of two rows. So we’re gonna start off with one color and then you’re gonna get rid of it. Then rows number two and three will be the same color four and five is the same color and et cetera. So you want this crossing over plus this shell to be the same color in order to get the maximized look out of this thing. So it’s a really neat easy way to be able to follow this thing as we’re going along. Also this blanket here when you see it here this is the same thing obviously, but what you’re looking at it, so see how you see that the shells are facing up this here the way it’s folded that the shells are facing down. So if you just turn it over you can see what it will look like from your perspective. Yeah, it’s a pretty cool idea. So you’re gonna need a 10 mm size ‘N’ crochet hook and they’re recommending Bernat Blanket Dappled with this particular one and you can have a lot of fun. So you can use any Bernat Blanket product for you and a size 10 mm hook. Just for cameras sake today I’m gonna be using Bernat Maker Home Dec with my 6 mm size ‘J’ crochet hook in order to play. One more thing before I let you go I always think about what people are gonna make comments to. They’re gonna say I don’t want this size blanket I want something bigger or I wanna change the size. If you’d like to change the size of this one no big deal. It’s in multiples of 6 plus 2. So chain in sets of six. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Keep going to as long as you wanna go and then once you’re satisfied just add to chains at the end. So it’s multiples of 6 plus 2. So enough chitter-chatter let’s get at her and let’s just insert a slipknot here and this is considered an easy level and I would agree with this one today. So I’m just gonna pull you back just hang on to your seat there for a second as I pull you back and let’s begin. So you can just chain 80 as per the pattern or you can chain in multiples of six plus two you decide. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. I’m going to do in multiples of six because I just need a small sample. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and I’m gonna do it one more time. So 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. Once I’m happy with the length of this all I just need to do is add two more chains to have balance. So 1 and 2 and then we’re gonna begin across on row number one. So let’s start you wanna go second chain from the hook. So just 1 and 2 turn it over and get the back hump of that stitch of that chain, sorry and you want to go right into it and do a single crochet. So it’s a really easy uh, row number one. You wanna skip two chains so skip the two so 1 and 2 go to the third and place in five double crochets in the third one. So let’s count those out together. So 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5, and once you’re satisfied you got your five I want you to skip two more chains then so 1 and 2 and go to the third chain and place in a single crochet. So this is gonna rest in between the shell work. So let’s just review the repeat again, and then I’ll leave you the rest of the chain. So you’re gonna skip two and go to the third and apply five double crochets. So we’ll count those. So 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5 and then you’re gonna skip two. So come back to the chain so 1, 2, go to the 3rd and single crochet. Please do that all the way across and you will have all these beautiful shells and we’re gonna get rid of this color at the end of this row. So please do that and I’ll see you at the end. So I’m just coming to the end of the row and gonna skip the last two there and I got one more stitch left or one more chain left and that’ll be a single crochet and I want you to get rid of this color. You can keep the colors the same if you really wanted to but I think this particular stitch it really lends itself to color play really quite nicely. So I’m gonna get rid of this yarn and what I want to do is that I want to really weave this in. So let’s weave this in um, until we get it to at least the top of this first shell. So just going in and out of the rows here. So the top of the shell is where you’re gonna have your first single crochet in there so that’ll kind of hold it and lock it if you decide to do that. And of course you can always use the tapestry needle to hide in your work if you really want to do that as well. So what I’m going to do then is that I am going to start and do row number two. So let’s turn our work and let’s look at the back side of this now and let’s get another color ready and let’s play. So rows two and three will be the same color. So you just got to go back and forth with the one color and then the next two sets of rows you wanna go back and forth the same color and et cetera. So you wanna go into the first single crochet and join your new yarn. And just pop it through just like that and chain 1, 2 and 3. Okay, so you joined and that’s gonna count as a double crochet and in the same one that you did the join go right up over top of the straggler again and do another double crochet. You’re going to chain one and just go to the middle one of the grouping of five. Okay, so when you do that remember the one that we just dragged through to hide make sure you go up underneath that one too so it will lock it and I want you to single crochet. Chain one and watch what we’re going to do. I want you to reach over to the next shell to the very first stitch and I want you to double crochet and then I want you to chain one and then come back to the shell that you’re currently just leaving and get the last one and access it from behind. So just wrap the hook and just kind of peel it forward and get that last double crochet that’s in the shell from behind and double crochet that. And what this is doing is it’s creating an X. I want you to chain one and then we’re gonna go to the middle one of that grouping of five and single crochet. Do you understand? Let’s try again. So you’re gonna chain one, you’re going to go to the next shell that you’re going and you wanna go to the first double crochet over there. You wanna chain one. Now you wanna come back to the shell that you’re leaving and go to the very last double crochet and access it from behind. So just wrap the hook and coming to get that one from behind to create the crossover X like that. And now we just want to chain one and then single crochet in the middle one of the grouping of five. That’s right there. You’re gonna do that all the way across. Let’s review again. So chain one, double crochet into the very first one of the next shell, chain one and then come back to the shell that you’re just leaving. Get the last double crochet and chain one and then single crochet in the top of the next middle grouping of five. It’s actually one uh, two stitches away from this one so 1 and 2. So you wanna do that all the way across this what it’s gonna look like and then in the very last one once you get over there chain one after the single crochet and in the final single uh, final single crochet I want you to apply two double crochets in there. And then we’re gonna turn our work and then begin the next row. So we wanna keep this color for two rows. So let’s turn and begin row number three. So in row number three we’re gonna start off this way. So we’re gonna chain up three. So 1, 2, 3 counts as your first double. Then in the same one that you’re just in I want you to put two more double crochets in there. You’re creating a half a fan shape. So now that the partial is in there you’re going to single crochet into the other one that’s already single crocheted in the top of the fan below. Keep that in there. So single crochet there and now do you see where they’re crossing over I need you to go to the chain one space that’s between the cross right there and I want you to apply five double crochets. So 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. And then I want you to single crochet in the next single crochet that you see and then in the next crossover in the space between another five double crochet. So 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 and then single crochet in the next single crochet and then go five into the next space in between the cross. So 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Single crochet in the next single crochet and then on the very edge one in the turning chain I want you to apply um, three double crochets. So go right into the chain not to a space it up itself and then that’s it for this particular color. So at the end of this one here, you see that there’s a crossover happening and so you’re gonna get rid of this color weave it in and then we’re gonna begin row number four. So there’s a total of four rows that are the part of the repeat because these fans shift in location. So let’s weave in our ends and I will see you and we’ll start row number four next. So let’s create a slip knot and put this on and let’s turn our work and begin row number four. So row number four we’re going to then just go into the top of the turning or sorry the last double crochet and you’re going to attach it with a slip knot and chain one and single crochet in the same one to begin. So we’re gonna create the crossover look. So the crossover look is really quite an easy one to be on the master. So you’re gonna chain one to start. Now this is a partial of, of a fan or of a shell. So you need to think about that and also we have the next shell that’s coming up. So to start the next one we’re going to double crochet in the next shell that we’re about to jump to just like that and then chain one and then come into the half, this half shell I want you to come into the last double crochet that’s there from behind. So the only difference is that we’re just changing where we’re starting these crossovers. That’s all. So then chain one and then single crochet in the middle one of the grouping of five. Chain one and then start. So you come to the next shell that you’re about to jump to the very first one chain one and come to the last double crochet of the shell before it. And then chain one, single crochet in the top of the next grouping of five the middle one, chain one, come to the next one shell just as the first double chain one and then come and get the last double crochet on the shell before it. Chain one, single crochet in the top. You’re gonna do that all the way across. So you can see how it’s awesome it’s looking. And so very, when you get to the very end over here so you’re just gonna chain one and you wanna come into the first one of the next shell like normal, chain one come into the last one of the shell that you were just in, chain one and all you just need to do in the very last turning chain is just apply a single crochet. And that was row number four. So let’s turn our work and do row number five. So row number five is going to put the shells in between the crosses like you did before. So the shells see how they’re over here now? They’ll be switching over. So you’ll see these shells are gonna be coming and jumping around. So let’s begin. So you’re just gonna chain up one and single crochet into the same one. In the crossover that you have you’re going to apply five double crochets. So 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. You’re going to single crochet in the next single crochet that you have and then reach over to the next crossover and do another five. So nice and easy as this goes you have a little bit of texture without a lot of fuss. Okay, and then single crochet in the next one and then reach over to the next crossover and just put it right in the gap space. So 1, just like that. Single crochet in the next one here and then next cross over there’s five. And then once that’s done single crochet in the last single crochet that you had and it’s the very last one in the row. So that’s all you need to do. So all you just have to do at the end is just get rid of all your tails. If you were burying them you probably could get away with not having to use a tapestry needle. But, but of course tapestry needle is always the best to be able to hide things. So this is what it would look like um, if it was completed. So you just wanna go back and start this red again. So you wanna get rid of this color change it over to red and then two rows of red and then blue and et cetera and you’ll see the fans will change locations as they go and let’s turn it around and take a look at the back. So you can see that the way that this pattern is this is the back side. All the fans are, this is the back side of all the fans so this side here would be the good color and I told you in the sample that when you see it folded on page number two, it’s actually looks like this. No big deal, right? So it’s really kind of a perspective and this is a really neat idea. Another free pattern by yarnspirations.com. This is called the Tippy Toes Crochet Blanket. Have a good one. We’ll see you again real soon. Bye, bye 👋
