The Crochet Cuddles’n Clouds Square Blanket is made up of 2 balls of Bernat Blanket. I intentionally went to my yarn collection and said to myself, “I have this silly ball of yarn that I have nothing more of it. What can I do with just 1 ball and pair it with another?” Voila, the idea came to me.
I thought travel size baby blankets that are about 30″ x 30″. One whole ball of the middle and then frame it off with a second ball. Problem solved.
You can let the two balls be used fully but I did stop the first colour when I knew I couldn’t do another round for it before starting the vintage white.
However, say you have two balls of the same colour or it doesn’t matter to you if the colours randomly change over once the first ball runs out, just continue to crochet until you can finish the blanket to the size you prefer. You can make this design as big as you need.

Fasten off and weave in ends.
