Oh No!

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.

  1. Dear Olga, Please, please do not rip out this work of art. It is beautiful. In case you do not get the same shade of yarn, use a contrast color and make two panels at the top and bottom to look like a design element. Thank you for the pattern, I am going to try it for a washcloth.

  2. Nice pattern ! Don't rip out this beautiful blanket ! Perhaps with some white or cream yarn around it, you can do something nice ! I hope you find a way...
    Have a frightening night !

  3. Don´t unravel it! It looks so pretty. Here is an idea: buy white or another matching color, and make a wide border with it. And keep this one for a special gift, and start your model one with another yarn and stitch.

  4. Thank you, ladies, for your comments. I think I will put away this project for a while and start another baby blanket with white yarn. I will decide later whether to keep it or unravel it.

  5. loved this pattern... i'll sure try this one tooo... i've already tried ur spider pattern... i'll upload it soon

  6. Well, I obviously am quite a bit later than others discovering your site, and among the others, this lovely stitch, I really like callong the "Oh, No!" stitch, for some reason.
