Coming Home Blanket Crochet Pattern

Whether you are bringing a little newborn home, reminding a sick loved-one of the comforts of home, or welcoming someone to their new home--the Coming Home Blanket is just the gift.

Look closely...can you see the wee little houses alternating with trees down the street? See here...

Inspired by this amazing tree-lined road that leads to my childhood home, the Coming Home blanket brings out the sentimental in me! Who, me??!!

Made with baby/sport/DK weight (3) yarn it works up very quickly to make a totally unique little blanket. Sweet and sentimental. Yep, like I said, sentimental.

And in typical Felted Button fashion, lots of color possibilities exist. I'm thinking this could be a terrific stash-buster. Imagine every row of trees and houses in a different color.  

Look at what Sarah (a fabulous tester of this pattern) from Sarahmade Creations did with her colors. I love them!

Want to make it larger--or any size? Easy to do with the multiples instructions included. Rated as easy, I provide lots of help with different stitches, too. 

You can find the pattern in my shops:



Happy Hooking, my lovelies!!

  7. I'm really struggling with slip stitching 'down the road'. I don't know if it's because of pulling through from the other side, or I just can't slip stitch evenly. Is there another option? Sewing vs. crochet? I've really enjoyed every other aspect of this blanket.

    1. I'm happy to hear you have enjoyed the pattern thus far. I think just a running stitch along the road would be fabulous. Use a long piece of the yarn and your needle and just work up and down between stitches. It would look great on both sides, too. If you have any more questions, please feel free to PM me on Facebook at facebook.com/feltedbutton

  8. Thanks, Susan. I realized the reason I had trouble was because I must have made numerous mistakes with the front and back loop of the street, causing my slip stitches to go crooked. Finished it up, and it still looks great to other people--my mistakes are noticeable to me!
