How to crochet the Alpine stitch baby blanket

 I have done this blanket a couple of years ago, I must say it was challenging for me as I'm not a fan of the front post stitch and I find it complicated and time consuming and yarn consuming, how ever the beauty of the Alpine stitch helped me forget all of that and make this pretty blanket.

I love how the stitch looks like on the blanket and in any project you might want to do, it is textured which makes it perfect for warming and beautiful looking. I would consider making another project using this stitch however when I'm done with all my projects.

About this blanket:

You'll find the written pattern below however I'll explain few things to you to make your next project easier.

The blanket starts with a single crochet row after the ch, the next row will be a double crochet, starting the third row will be the beginning of the front post stitch, so one stitch will be a front post stitch and the next stitch will be a normal a double crochet and you will alternate till the end of the row.

The next row will be a single crochet again.

The next row will be repeated on wards, as what was a front post stitch in the previous row, will be a normal double crochet and what was a normal double crochet will be a front post stitch.

So basically that's how your work will be throughout.
