Lion Brand put together an amazing collection of patterns for the 12 Weeks of Christmas - and one of those patterns is the Snowdrifts Afghan! The Snowdrifts Afghan features a stitch pattern I started using last Christmas season - but this time I've paired it with squishy sparkly Wool-Ease Thick and Quick! The two colorways used - Mystical and Celebration - both feature a gorgeous and eye-catching metallic thread. It's not easy to capture on camera, but in person, it gives this blanket a lot of oomph!
When I started designing the Dream Puffs Crochet Blanket, I thought it would be a baby blanket - but this stitch is so darn squishy I decided it's for everybody! So here is the Dream Puffs Crochet Blanket free crochet pattern in 5 sizes - you're going to love cuddling up in this one! The Dream Puffs Crochet Blanket uses this fantastic V-stitch and puff stitch combo move that makes for an easy pattern to memorize that creates tons of texture, loft, and warmth. The lovely color changes are created by using two colorways of Lion Brand Scarfie - a self-striping yarn worked in stripes! I used two colorways with a lot in common, but I can't wait to see what combos you all come up with!
"This soft and sweet textured velvet crochet blanket feels like it should be used in an expensive hotel SPA. Use modern crochet stitches paired with Bernat Baby Velvet yarn to crochet this luxurious throw. Soft and Squishy Afghan The combination of front post double crochet and back post double crochet paired with this silky yarn create a soft and squishy Afghan. When my daughter ran her hands across this blanket, she snuggled her face against the yarn. She said the fluffy and soft blanket was the plushest feeling one yet. We think it is because of the added texture created by the crochet stitches and the fluffy yarn. Pair this bulky yarn with the right stitch and you have a winner. The pattern is a two-row repeat consisting of a row of single crochet, which ads a bit of stability to the entire project. The next row uses a special stitch pattern alternating the front post double crochet and back post double crochet stitches."
This baby blanket is so fun and easy featuring Lion Brand Mandala Baby yarn, the pineapple cluster stitch and an easy one-row repeat! Perfect match with the Lion Brand Mandala yarn but could certainly be made with any size weight yarn as gauge is not important with this project. The edging is a frilly double edged arch which is the perfect match with this blanket. Easy and fun this blanket would be lovely as a baby gift.
"The Camden Christmas Crochet Blanket is a beautiful crochet afghan that doesn't have to be dedicated just to Christmas, but will be a gorgeous addition to your decor. It's beginner friendly. (So many Christmas blankets are geared toward more advanced crocheters.) It can be used all year, and it would look good in a variety of different yarn colors. It's made with Lion Brand Cobblestone Yarn which creates a blanket that's squishy but not too heavy or bulky."
