The Trellis Stripe blanket is done. It’s my 3rd blanket finish for the year and blanket #4, the yellow blanket stitch one, is done too except for weaving my ends in.

  • Pattern – Trellis Stripe free from Attic24
  • Yarn – Caron Big Cake in the Grape Jelly colorway – 2.25 big cakes used
  • Hook size – I
  • Finished size is about 40 x 52

I started out doing her edging but went wrong somewhere on the first round so I just continued on in a similar way without worrying that my stitches weren’t lining up like hers. I like the picot finish!

This colorway wasn’t working up as pretty as I’d hoped in this pattern during the making of the blanket but I’m happy with how it looks finished and a little girl somewhere will love the purples I’m sure!


  1. I think it looks great!

    I have an adapted shell pattern that I made my grape jelly into…after the chain row of 130 (I think), turn and in 4th chain from hook, 1 dc, ch 2, and a single crochet, then repeat (2 dc, 2 ch, and 1 sc) every 3rd chain. At the end of the row, ch 3 and turn. In the first ch 2 space, 1 dc, ch 2, 1 sc, and then in all other ch 2 spaces (2 dc, ch 2, 1 sc) all the way across. Repeat rows until you have the afghan the length you want it. There is also a pretty border with 6 rows in it to do at the end. Very simple pattern and I can even do it without looking at what I’m doing!

    It’s so nice to see this yarn in another pattern!
