Please note: the stitch patterns used for this accessory include written as well as charted instructions.


  • Whimm is made of 99 individually crocheted squares with circular dot motifs, which are worked circularly with RS facing throughout. The squares are then sewn together using the Whip Stitch. A simple border is worked around the entire blanket after assembly.
  • The baby blanket’s schematic includes the color arrangement used for the sample but we encourage you to have fun and arrange your colored dots as you wish.
  • The squares may be worked from either the chart or from the written instructions.
  • Two size options are obtained by changing gauge: a baby blanket worked in fingering weight Peerie and a larger throw worked in DK-weight Arbor.
