To begin with, the rainbow pastel colors of Stylecraft Special DK yarn underline the delicacy and beauty of the feather and fan stitch. Consequently, this color combo definitely is a good idea for a baby shower and goes well with any newborn clothes.
The blanket was based on YT tuturial by Fiber Spider:
Baby blanket crochet patterns are one of the best options when it comes down to trying to pick a handmade gift for a special little one. This Feather and Fan Baby Blanket creates a phenomenal striped wave pattern that uses the straightforward foundation single crochet stitch. Fan-like sections of tight stitches offset with looser open stitches make up the individual rows. If there was a color scheme that could inspire you to hug, it would be this warm mint and gray combination. Lucky for you and the young one, you will have no problem working up this easy crochet baby blanket.
This is a pattern for a baby blanket (afghan, christening shawl) in lace spider stitch design and a wide ruffled trim made with light worsted (category 3) yarn and size G/6 (4.25 mm) crochet hook. The finished blanket measures approximately 40 by 31 inches.
I really enjoyed crocheting this textured baby blanket in pastel. This crochet pattern is a repeat of one row using single crochet and double crochet stitches. These pastel yarn colors just pop with this pattern. I used single crochet and two double crochet to create the puffy look. So easy to work this pattern. This blanket is just the right size for both a baby blanket and a lap afghan. Not too big that it drags on the floor, but large enough to take the chill off. Additionally, some folks like to feel the texture in a blanket and this is full of lots of nice squishy texture.
Continuing, here is a feather and fan stitch baby blanket using the same techniques. Although, or perhaps because, it is created only with 2 hues of TLC Baby Solid yarn in white and blue-ish Bunny Print, it is simple and elegant. At the same time, it is an outstanding blanket with an intriguing texture.
