Crochet Hugs & Kisses Starshine Blanket

I am very proud to introduce to you the 7th in the Hugs & Kisses Series of patterns, Hugs & Kisses Starshine Blanket!  This was very challenging for me to accomplish but I promise you, the pattern is not hard and it’s fun because you change stitches enough to keep your interest.  Honestly, as it grows, you will not want to put your crochet hook down.

I went with a 6 point star based on how much I love the look of Mikey’s Fluffy Unicorn Blanket and at the very beginning is started the same way.  But that’s where it ends.  You will love the cross stitches and popcorns as it created a texture that you can’t keep your hands off of.

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.
