Hello! I’m Gina Hesik from @makewayforcrochet on Instagram.
When I saw Ashley’s Crafty Pencil Pillow last year, I just knew I needed it for my classroom! My students loved holding and squeezing the pencil.
In mid-September, I was given a rocking chair for my classroom. I decided to make a special blanket and pillow combo for each month.
You can see all these monthly combos on my Instagram feed.
I didn’t have a blanket to match the pencil though, having decided to create the blanket/pillow combos later in September. So this summer I created the perfect match for the pillow…a piece of notebook paper!
I hope you have fun making this pattern. Have fun, too, watching all the reactions from this darling pencil and paper!
If you post pics of your finished notebook paper blanket, I’d love to see them! Be sure to tag me @makewayforcrochet on Instagram!

????Before You Start ????
You can make your blanket any size by adding more chains in the foundation row and adding to the length.
I made mine a smaller size for the rocking chair in my classroom. It is approximately 32”x 37”.
Notebook Paper Blanket Pattern
Row 1 Beginning in the second ch. from the hook, HDC in each chain with white. (104)
Each row will have the same number of stitches, so for my blanket, it was 104.
Rows 2-7 HDC in each stitch with white.
Rows 8-9 HDC across with blue.
Continue with 7 rows of white and two rows of blue.
My blanket had a total of 105 rows
When you are close to the length you want, finish with a larger section of white rows for the top part of your paper.
Mine has 15 rows of white for the top.
Finish off your paper by single crocheting around the entire blanket.
Sew in ends.
I used the circle pattern from The Spruce Crafts.
I made mine in gray with DC. Be sure to leave a long tail for sewing your holes onto your blanket.
Space your gray circles out on your paper so they look even. Measure in from the left edge so they will look straight.
Use the long tail and a yarn needle to sew the holes onto your blanket.
Pro Tip: Try to just grab the top strands of white yarn with your yarn needle so that it doesn’t show through to the back of the blanket.
Sew in ends.
Using a piece of scrap yarn, loosely stitch down the entire blanket in a line where you want your margin to be.
I started my SSC in pink at the top of the paper. Undo your scrap yarn stitches a little as you go so you keep nice and straight.
Sew in ends.
