The Crochet Butterfly Kisses Baby Blanket can be changed to any size. A free pattern with a crochet diagram included.
My original design was back in 2009 where it was the Lazy Wave Baby Blanket. This is before me really understanding or doing texture in blankets. A simple repeat and I wondered it’s now 2021, what texture could I add to this blanket with what I know today.
Changing sizes and crochet diagram are available in the free download.
I experimented with front and back posts and I realized I had a small problem in the valleys. Jeanne calls my idea ‘fancy’ but it was a great solution. When the stitches are put together in the valley and I want texture, the two legs of the stitch are on the opposite sides of the blanket. This kept the stitch definition intact.
- There are two rows of white that are straight single crochet rows. Easy to remember, right!?
- The colour stripes are made up of 4 rows. The first row is a setup row to get the texture to be ready. The other three rows of the colour are the texture itself.
- I designed this so the textured row is exactly the same sequence for each of the 3 rows. So there are no new stitch sequences to learn. Simple.
- I knew people would ask me, how to change the sizes of this blanket. So yes, I did the math and figured it out from a small baby blanket to a king-size bedspread that includes the drape over a mattress. I got you covered.
I have two other blankets from this year, 2021, to share with you that is also textured. I planned for a trio set of stitch textured blankets. Both are also using Caron One Pound yarns and you can colour them any way you wish.
