The yarn is available in 16 colors that feel modern yet classic. Browse their selection and you’re sure to find something that suits your next crochet project.

The gauge for this pattern, in sc, is 12 st by 12 rows for a 10 cm by 10 cm square (4” by 4”).
This pattern uses US notations.
- st = stitch

Work instructions between [ ] the indicated number of times or until the end of the row / round.
The final number of stitches is indicated at the end of the row / round between < >.
The turning ch 1 doesn’t count as stitches throughout the pattern except if mentioned otherwise.
The pattern is written in crochet shorthand. For example:
- “sc 1” means to single crochet in the next stitch,
- “sc 2” means to single crochet in each of the next 2 stitches,
- and “2 sc” means to single crochet twice in the next st.

With your 8mm / US J – 11 hook, ch 110 (152, 194, 236) +1
Row 1: Sc in the 1st ch from the hook, sc across, turn. <110 (152, 194, 236) st>
Row 2 – 10: Ch 1, sc across, turn.

Repeat Row 2 ten times.
Fasten off and weave in the ends.
To make your blanket even prettier, help straighten your edges and make the puffs come out even more, block your project.
Don’t skip this step as it can make a huge difference. Read my detailed tutorial on why block, how-to, and all my tips and tricks if you need help.
Make 4 tassels and attach one at each corner of your crochet blanket.
I made mine 10 cm / 2” long.
