The Bloque Stitch Blanket is made using the bloque stitch, which is an interlocking stitch where you work into unworked stitches from previous rows. This creates a nice, thick, solid fabric without any holes. The staggered texture created by the stitches works really well with self striping yarns. The pattern is written for a small baby size blanket but can easily be adjusted to be different sizes. It is finished off with a simple single crochet border.
The bloque stitch is an interlocking stitch, where some of the stitches are worked into stitches 2 rows below, not just the previous row like you normally would. This gives the stitches a kind of staggered look and I thought it worked really well with the self-striping yarn because it blended the colors in a really cool way. The stitch still has a neat texture when worked in a solid color yarn, but I really love the effect with the striped yarn.
It’s a great crochet stitch if you’re looking to improve your crochet skills. Crochet is a hobby that can be enjoyed by the whole family and this may just be your next crochet project.

Interlocking Crochet Stitch
It creates a pretty dense fabric. I finished the blanket off with a simple single crochet border in white to add a little contrast.
