At the moment, with winter coming here in South Africa and with several babies having arrived in this world around me, I am on the look out for baby blankets. This Textured Crocheted one looks lovely and cozy for the coming winter and, having done a quick sample of the pattern, it is really easy to make which I always like for larger items, lol! A few of us friends also crochet for a local childrens home and I think this is also a good pattern to be making for the little ones there.

Shades of blue, almost any kind of blue- are my favorite shades. This yarn is to die for. The Bernat Baby yarn is a great choice for this project. It would be darling with a coordinating stripe incorporated within the pattern. Blue and yellow go good together! The bobble stitch is really a great fidget for you or your little one.

I love this project! It turned out beautifully and it was fun to work and watch as the bobbles made a pattern. Highly recommend it!

I love this Textured Crochet Blanket. The bobble stitch is a fun stitch to do and make the blanket look gorgeous and so warm. I can't wait to make this one. The directions as well written and a easy read. I'm thinking of doing a few of these and try the self striping yarns that are out there.. Thank you for this beautiful blanket pattern.

This is not easy to follow. It looked great until row 5...then I stopped. I am scrapping this project.

directions for "bobble" are at the top... it really isn't hard... try it, maybe you will surprise yourself :)

how many more stitches to make it widerI didn't see a formula

Can someone please tell me what it means on the second row when it says ch1 miss next ch 1sp

I think it means chain 1, skip the next chain, 1sp, (I don't know that abbreviation--I'd guess space) This is a Bernat pattern, try heading over to their website and see what their abbreviations mean.

how does one crochet a bobble??

I think it is suppose to be a bubble. Follow this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rZZLdMZVDkc

I've made two of these and the compliments never stopped coming. One was for my cousin's son and the other for a member of my church. I know I will crochet another soon! S. Hopson New Jersey

Can you tell me what the pattern means on row 2 when it reads miss next ch-1sp?

It means to skip the space where you chained 1 in the previous row. ch1 sp = chain 1 space - the space - or hole - not inside the actual stitch but the hole it created.

Can someone please clarify what is meant by "1 sc in top of turn ch". Thanks.

I agree

I don't see a reply to your question.... but it's the last stitch in the last row you're working on or the chain you make to start a new row. Hope this helps someone. =)

I made this blanket for my grandson. I turned out beautiful and incredibly soft in the Bernat Baby yarn. I was very pleased with the results and so was my daughter!!!

I just completed this blanket for my granddaughter and it turned out really nice! I can't wait to give it to her!
