Twinkle Crochet Stitch



One of the readers of my blog wrote to me asking help with this particular stitch. She would like to make a baby blanket similar to this one (click here), but doesn’t know how to go about it.

From what I can see in the picture, the blanket was made using double crochets and “twinkles”.







So I came up with my variation of "twinkles". 

I believe once you master making “twinkles” using my pattern below, you can measure your swatch, do some simple calculations, and start your Twinkle blanket.  

Good luck!
