How To Make A Textured Colour Block Crochet Blanket

Image
Hello friends.  I recently noticed that the yarn I used for this crochet baby blanket , had been discontinued.  It's a real shame, as the mix of cotton and acrylic made such a beautiful squishy yarn.  So, I thought it was time that this pattern had an update.   I made the blanket again with new yarn and also added more sizes and other helpful information too.  I hope you like the new version... This pattern is crocheted entirely in Wattle Stitch .  I love the texture and it is so quick and easy to make.  A beginner crocheter can easily follow this pattern and if these colours aren't your cup of tea, it would look great in so many other colour combinations.  Just pick 3 colours you love for a colour block effect or you could even use a self striping or cake yarn.   This blanket here is also another quick and easy make. Now this pattern was originally designed as a baby blanket and the previous one was gifted to my brothers son when he was a baby, but what if you don't
