I find making these graphghan blankets so much fun. They can be tedious with all the bobbins involved, but the outcome is always worth the little inconvenience. This MCAL blanket is too cute for words and would make an awesome baby shower or birthday gift for any special little girl in your life!

This Blanket is perfect for any little girl (or maybe even you!)!

Caron One Pound and Red Heart Super Saver were what I used so the amount of skeins may vary depending on the brand/weight/type of yarn you use

2 Skeins Caron One Pound (Approx 1600 Yards) for Background Color
1 Skein of Red Heart Super Saver (Approx 300 yards) for Accent Color
I9/5.5mm Hook or Tunisian Hook
Tapestry Needle

The materials you choose will have a direct bearing on what the size of your blanket will be, so if you use a smaller yarn or needle, expect your blanket to come out smaller and vice versa.

The directions to the pattern will be written as row counts, there is no intricate pattern writing on how to manage color changes or whether to use separate skeins, carry your yarn, or use bobbins (although I recommend using separate bobbins for each section). If this is your first time doing a graphghan, I recommend utilizing YouTube for video tutorials.

This pattern can be worked in Tunisian, single crochet, or HDC. I don’t recommend doing double crochet because it makes the picture look stretched out and incomplete. Also, if you choose to work in something other than Tunisian, you will need to read every even numbered row backwards. Don’t worry, its nowhere near as complicated as it may sound. If I can do it, you definitely can.
