Bonfire Blanket Wrap, Free Crochet Pattern + Video


The Bonfire Blanket Wrap is a super cozy, oversized wrap for the colder months, camping, or gathering around the fire too!  Lovely corner to corner stitch gives it a fabulous texture and interesting striping.  Stitch up one for yourself to cozy up with this fall and winter!

Need a little help? There's a full video tutorial below!

Materials:
  • 6.5 mm K crochet hook
  • 1,062 yards of worsted weight yarn in colors of your choice. (Note: the darker brown yarn in the wrap shown is actually DK weight, but this particular yarn was almost identical in weight/thickness to the other colors)
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Removable stitch marker

Sizing:
  • 22 inches wide
  • 62 inches tall 


Instructions For C2C Width Increase Portion (increase on both sides):

Row 1: Ch 6, then work a dc into the 4th ch from the hook.  Work a dc into each of the next 2 ch.

Row 2: Ch 6.  Work a dc into the 4th ch from the hook and in each of the next 2 ch.  Slip stitch into the 3rd dc stitch to join the two blocks together.  You'll need to flip the block a bit to get to the right spot.  Just make sure your tail is pointing downward and you'll be in the right position.  Ch 3, then work 3 dc into the turning ch space.

Row 3: Ch 6 (you may need to turn things a bit so that the tail is facing downward again).  Work a dc into the 4th ch from the hook and in each of the next 2 ch.  Slip stitch into the turning chain space of the next block to join the two blocks together.  You'll need to flip the block a bit to get to the right spot.  Just make sure your tail is pointing downward and you'll be in the right position.  *Ch 3, then work 3 dc into the turning ch space and slip stitch into the turning chain space to join the two blocks together.  Repeat from * across.  When you work the last block, you won't need to slip stitch it into anything, simply move onto the next row.

Repeat row 3 until your wrap is the width you'd like it to be (wrap pictured is  inches wide), then move on to part 2.

Instructions For C2C Height Increase Portion (increase on one side, decrease on the other):

Note: To keep me from getting my sides mixed up, I placed a stitch marker on the side where I decreased.

Row 1: Ch  6, then work a dc into the fourth ch from the hook.  Work a dc in each of the next two chains, then join with a slip stitch to connect the two blocks together.  Work (3 dc, ch 1) and join blocks with a slip stitch in each ch 1 space across until just before the last space (turning chain space).  At the end of the row, join into the last block with a slip stitch.  Turn and work a slip stitch in each stitch across the first block of the row.  Continue across the row in this manner, working the increase at the beginning of the row and decreasing (where stitch marker is) at the end of the row.

Repeat until the shawlette is as tall as you like, I worked my height to about  inches tall.

Instructions for C2C Decrease Portion (decrease on both sides):

Row 1: Turn the work and slip stitch in each stitch across the first block, and slip stitch into the turning chain space.  *Ch 3, then work 3 dc into the turning ch space.  Join into the next block with a slip stitch.  Repeat from * to end of row.

Repeat row 1 of the decrease until just a top point remains.  Fasten off and weave in ends that remain.  Note: if the top is challenging for you, be sure to check out the video for this part (or any other part) to see me walk through it step by step!

Weave in any ends that remain and you're finished!
