Free Tunisian Crochet Blanket Pattern: Three Little Kittens

Welcome to this cute free Tunisian crochet blanket pattern, featuring a surprise of three little kittens!

Yes, I’ve successfully completed my first graphghan! The intricate color shifts in graphghans had always intimidated me, but I was eager to dive in. Drawing inspiration from the captivating art of Piet Mondrian, I crafted this piece with five distinct colors, ensuring the transitions remained relatively simple. For an extra touch of fun for my cat-loving daughter, I incorporated a delightful cat design. She’s thrilled with it! I’m elated with the outcome, especially since it’s my first time using neutral toned colors of yarn. I hope you will enjoy making your own version of this Tunisian crochet blanket!

What are Graphghans?

Graphghans are Afghan patterns made using graphs, where each square of the graph represents a block or stitch and the color of each stitch is indicated in the squares of the graph.

Tunisian Crochet Hooks

I made the Three Little Kitten Graphghan with a 8.00 mm Denise Interchangeable Hook. If you haven’t tried them already, I highly recommend these hooks. They are wonderful to work with!

Experience Level

Intermediate – This pattern assumes you have basic knowledge of starting and ending a Tunisian crochet project, executing the Tunisian Simple Stitch, and color changes mid-row.

Gauge

12 rows of 13 Tunisian Simple Stitches is a 4” square.

Gauge isn’t crucial for this pattern; feel free to use any yarn and matching Tunisian hook of your choice without altering the pattern. However, the final size of your cozy blanket might differ based on your yarn, crocheting style and tension.

Abbreviations

  1. ch – chain
  2. fs – First Stitch – Skip the first vertical bar of the previous row (the one right under the one on the hook). The loop on the hook will count as the first stitch for every row.
  3. ls Last Stitch – Pick up the two vertical bars of the last stitch of the previous row, yarn over, pull through both the vertical bars into a loop on the hook.
  4. tssTunisian Simple Stitch – Insert hook in the vertical bar, yarn over, pull up a loop on the hook.
  5. FR – Foundation Row
  6. BOR – Bind Off Row

The yarn quantities provided are approximate. Should you opt for a different size or if there are variations in your yarn, hook size, crochet technique, or gauge, the amount of yarn you require could be more or less than specified.

Pattern Notes

  1. This pattern is written in English / US terms.
  2. The instructions below are only for the forward pass. The return pass for every row is the same:
    ch1, (yo, pull through two loops)* until one loop remains on the hook.
  3. The block featuring the cats consists of 45 stitches across 42 rows. Feel free to substitute this block with an alternative design should you wish to create your own. A worksheet for crafting your personalized block is included in the paid version of this pattern.
  4. TIP: Be sure to count all your stitches!! This is crucial as it’s quite simple to accidentally add or skip a stitch. The best way to prevent this is by ensuring you keep track of your stitch count.
  5. TIP: Visually inspect your project after every few rows. Failing to count each stitch might lead to errors that become apparent later on. Mistakes are quite noticeable in this pattern, so I strongly recommend careful inspection after every few rows.
  6. TIP: Use a separate bobbin for each color change. While I initially considered carrying the black yarn along the back in the block featuring the cats, I had to undo several rows due to the untidy appearance it created on the reverse side.
  7. In case you’re curious, this is what the backside of my blanket appears like:

This will be the bind off row. You will make a slip stitch every time you pick up a loop on your hook. Fasten off and weave in all ends.

Note: There could be a noticeable gap in the tail of the center cat. When securing the loose end linked to the tail of this cat, employ the yarn threaded onto the needle to create a diagonal stitch at the front, effectively filling the gap. For a visual guide, refer to the video tutorial.

Blocking

Before using your blanket, I suggest blocking it using your favored method.
For reference, I stretched out my blanket and pinned it to a blocking board, and then I chose to steam block mine.

I'm very much looking forward to making this blanket. I've seen patterns for designs over the years, but they were all difficult to understand so I never made one. The Kittens pattern is wonderfully easy to follow and the video makes it a sure thing. Thank you for sharing this with us.
