This week, I've been crocheting a lot of baby items. Seems like everyone is having their babies in the Springtime and leaves me with a lot of work to do. I have so much fun crocheting my own blanket pattern, it's versatile enough for both baby girls and boys. I decided on naming it Puffy Clusters, it's combination of a small shell stitch and single crochet. The clusters intersect in row with the top. This is both a great summer cover and winter cover. The last one I made was mint, which I will post in a couple of weeks, it's a surprise gift for my niece.
Remember to please give me credit for coming up with this stitch, if you decide to make one. I am allowing to reproduce and sell this pattern as you see fit. But, please do credit me for my work.
If you decide to crochet this blanket pattern, know that it can be thick (heavier) with a tight stitch, or lighter with a relaxed stitch.
