I know we’re heading into the summer months, but I can crochet blankets all year round. What about you? If you’re looking for a fun, textured blanket to hold your interest as you crochet, this is the perfect project for you. This blanket is made using the single crochet, half double crochet, and puff stitch to create tons of texture. Photo tutorials are provided for each stitch and colour changing technique. I hope you enjoy making this afghan as much as I did.

  • This blanket uses approximately 1700 - 2000 yds of any medium 4 worsted weight yarn (depending on how long you’d like to make your blanket)
  • This throw measures 44” x 49”, but instructions are provided to customize the size of your blanket.
  • I used 6 skeins of Vanna’s Choice, 1 skein of Caron one Pound, and 1 skein of Bernat Premium yarn.
  • This blanket is a great stash busting project because you can get creative with the yarn you have on hand!

If you have any questions as you go through the pattern, please don’t hesitate to ask! I’d be more than happy to help you.

The printable PDF is a total of 13 pages including the cover page. It includes photo tutorials of the puff stitch and colour changing technique; a colour chart; and step-by-step photos to help you along the way.
