Crochet Odd Ball Blanket

The Crochet Odd Ball Blanket is another morph of the Daisy Stitch using Bernat Blanket Yarn. Great stash busting project and tips to tweak the pattern.

This goes along with 2 other blankets that are showcased below that have the daisy stitch that came out this spring, 2021. 

I get excited in a yarn aisle and then end up with oddballs that I don’t know what to do with. I decided to look at my Bernat Blanket yarn stash and puzzle the blanket using 8 different balls. Four variegated and four solid balls. Using the pattern, you can do two stripes per blanket.

A crochet diagram is provided and the stitch multiple to change the size is 4 + 3.

This is using the daisy stitch with trebles as being the base but it’s not the first blanket of this style, it’s actually the 3rd for spring 2021 trending.

The original trending was the JOANN Spring Stitch Along example. This is where I learned this concept the first time.

This blanket has 2 versions of the Daisy Stitch.

  1. Daisy Puff Stitch with wave row in between is in the centre panel. It’s a bit to get used to it but once you got the swing, you should be okay. It’s using the half double crochet puff stitching to get this.
  2. Daisy Puff Stripe Stitch is showcased in week 3 that you can see with the yellow and white striping. Again the Daisy Puff Stitch with half double crochet but is spaced out between each other.

The Garden Flowers Blanket is again the same concept but with a different approach.

The Daisy Stitch is in the orange colour and this time the daisies are pushed up to each other and they share a petal between each other. They are also using trebles to substantially increase the size of the daisy stitch and have faster blanket growth.

This created a textured look but I wondered to myself, what would this look like if there were no buffers in between them and I just change the colour?

So I created the Odd Ball Blanket by using the same concept without the buffers.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    The unknown color in the instructions looks like beach babe or little cosmos

    I have started this with LB Ice Cream Deluxe.
    Any thoughts on using 2 strands of worsted instead of super bulky? Just curious.

      Try it… you have nothing to lose. 🙂

  3. Rea W. says:

    This blanket looks both beautiful and cozy. I have not tried Bernat Yarn yet. Perhaps this would be a good start. What would the beginning chain be for a toddler’s blanket?

    1. Wendy Maruna says:

      We have an article with sizes that may help you. Mikey gives the multiples in the article for the Odd Ball Blanket, you can chain it to be the size you wish. That way you can customize it to suit your needs
