Easy Filet Ribbons Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

This baby blanket is made in a color changing cake yarn but it will be beautiful in a solid color as well. Because the filet forms ribbons, it will make an excellent awareness project. Use a rainbow striping yarn for a Rainbow Baby.

Designer Note

Cause Awareness Ribbon blanket. For instance, use pink for a breast cancer awareness blanket or purple for alzheimer’s disease or lupus. View a full list of all awareness colors HERE. I’ve just shown it as a baby blanket here, but you can easily change the size using the stitch multiples I’ve provided below and a solid color for the ribbon color you would like to represent.

About Filet Crochet

This project is made in filet crochet. Typical filet crochet designs provide an initial chain count and a chart only. For this project, I’m providing both the typical chart and text instructions. I’m hopeful that people will use this project as a learning project. For more filet crochet instruction, I have general filet crochet instructions.

Basic Filet

Each solid square is equal to 3 dc. Each open square is equal to (1 dc, ch 1, 1 dc). The dc at the end of each square also counts as the first dc of the next square. For example, a solid square followed by an open square is 3 dc, ch 1, 1 dc. Solid squares count as “solid mesh” and open squares count as “open mesh”.

Stitch Multiples

To increase the width, start with a chain in a multiple of 46 then add 36

Notes

I prefer to use a chain 2 at the beginning of double crochet rows and my pattern is written this way. If you prefer to use a chain 3 at the beginning of double crochet rows, feel free to do so here as well.

When instructions indicate to work into or to skip a stitch, count the chain 1 space as a stitch too.

When instructions indicate to work into a ch-1, work into the space rather than into the chain itself.

Gauge

15 dc for 8 rows measures 4″
