Candyfloss Daydreams is composed of four different sizes of square that all fit together a little like a jigsaw puzzle to create a square blanket that’s big enough for a lap blanket, or the perfect size for a child. The border is light and ruffly, which is a lovely contrast to the more solid squares.

The pattern is written in US terms and assumes you’re familiar with a range of basic and intermediate stitches. It includes plenty of pictures.

It uses five colours of Stylecraft Special DK (sherbet, candyfloss, soft peach, toy, and cream). You will need two balls of sherbet and candyfloss, and three balls of soft peach, toy and cream.

You can buy colour packs for this blanket in my Deramores shop.

I used a 4.5mm hook to create squares that are 3”, 6”, 9” and 12”. The full blanket, including border, measures approximately 44”/112cm.

However gauge isn’t terribly important for this blanket, as long as your squares all correspond. That is, if your 3” square is more like 3.5”, then your 6” squares should be 7”, etc, so that all four sizes of square fit together. If your squares are larger, you will also need to allow more yarn to complete the project.

You will also need a tapestry needle for sewing in ends, and you will find stitch markers helpful too.

The pattern has been tested, but we’re only human; forgive any errors!
