What is a gingham crochet stitch?
First of all, we can’t really call it a stitch because you can make it with various techniques. Some crochet blanket patterns feature only basic stitches, such as single crochet or double crochet stitches. Others use more advanced methods, such as tapestry crochet or corner-to-corner.
Gingham is a type of plaid pattern in which the colors create an illusion of weaving. It usually features three colors – a background color and two shades of the main color. One of these shades is usually darker than the other.
How to create a gingham crochet baby blanket?
Choose a crochet pattern that you like and look into the pattern notes. Then look at various gingham blankets to see what kind of colorway you’d like to have in your project.
Once you’re ready, choose the right weight yarn – you will find the recommendations in the pattern notes. When in doubt, check the most popular yarn choices for crochet blankets and go from there. Remember that your crochet hook size must fit the weight of your yarn.
Gingham crochet blankets are very versatile and adaptable. When you know your repeat, it’s easy to calculate the number of stitches for a bigger or smaller blanket. When in doubt, always make a gauge swatch.
