Crochet Gigi’s Popcorn Blanket

The crochet Gigi’s Popcorn Blanket is the exact opposite of the original Gigi Blanket.  The Gigi uses the bobble stitch to create the hugs.  This one uses the popcorn stitch instead.  So if you prefer the popcorn as I do, you will like this blanket even more.

The Gigi collection features my two favorites, the Modern Granny and the Hugs & Kisses series.  I love the textures of the H&K, but this also adds a bit of speed by mixing in the MG style to the blanket.

When you upload your project to The Crochet Crowd Stitch Social Group or Instagram, feel free to tag me so I can see what you have crocheted.  Follow me on Instagram @ jeannestein or on Facebook.  My designs can also be saved in your Ravelry favorites by following me HERE.
