What a disappointment! I ran out of yarn for this baby blanket. I wanted to make a square one, but even a rectangular one would do if only the pattern was running along the length, not the width (if you know what I mean).
I used Pound of Love yarn by Lion Brand. I could probably buy another skein of yarn, but it wouldn’t be from the same lot, so the color could be slightly different. Besides, I wanted to create a baby blanket pattern that would require only one skein (one pound).
I’ll have to rip it all out and start again using another stitch. This stitch is pretty, but for my blanket I will need something lacier!
I am sharing the pattern for this puffy stitch as some of you might want to use it. Just keep in mind that it requires more yarn.
Puff in this pattern: (yo, insert hook, draw up a loop) 4 times in same ch, yo, draw through 9 loops
Multiple of 6 ch plus 4
Row 1: sk 3 ch, *(1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in next ch, sk 2 ch, 1 puff, ch 1, sk 2 ch*, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in last ch. Ch 3, turn.
Row 2: *1 puff in 2-ch sp between 2 dc of previous row, ch 1, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) under loop that closes the puff in previous row*, 1 puff, 1 dc in 3-ch sp at beg of previous row. Ch 3, turn.
Row 3: (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in top of puff, *1 puff in 2-ch space, ch 1, (1 dc, ch 2, 1 dc) in top of puff*, 1 dc in 3-ch sp at beg of previous row. Ch 3, turn.
Repeat from Row 2.
