Here’s how it works.

The Endless Rectangle Blanket Pattern is available in 7 popular sizes. This project is crocheted from the center out, in joined, turned rounds and this blanket looks beautiful when worked in a single color of yarn, in ombre yarn, or when you change colors every few rounds (like I did for my Endless Afghan Square).

The written pattern is available for free in my post below and I have also filmed a video tutorial to get you started on your project. If you’d prefer an ad-free PDF copy of the pattern you can get it in my Shop.

Notes:

  • After Rnd 1 we only work into the ch2sp; sk all other stitches.
  • The sl st to join is made into the first sc of the round and does not count as a stitch.

ADDITIONAL SIZES

Combined pattern for sizes 36×48 (40×60, 48×60, 50×64, 38×50, 28×34, 42×48) inches. First (smaller) number will be the height and the second (larger) number will be the width. Both the width and height change with each round added, so the starting chain is dependent on the final number of rounds made to arrive at the given width. If the gauge on your blanket is different from the stated gauge, the final measurements will also be different. 

  • Read all notes and special stitches for sample size afghan above before beginning.
