Textured Pastel Baby Blanket
"I really enjoyed crocheting this textured baby blanket in pastel. This crochet pattern is a repeat of one row using single crochet and double crochet stitches. These pastel yarn colors just pop with this pattern. I used single crochet and two double crochet to create the puffy look. So easy to work this pattern. This blanket is just the right size for both a baby blanket and a lap afghan. Not too big that it drags on the floor, but large enough to take the chill off. Additionally, some folks like to feel the texture in a blanket and this is full of lots of nice squishy texture."

Yarn Colors Pattern
Begin with 5 rows of the green yarn.
Repeat the next 15 rows 5 times: 5 rows soft pink, 2 rows white, 5 rows orchid, 3 rows green.
15 rows X 7 = 105 rows
End with 2 additional rows of the green yarn. (That way the pattern starts and ends with a total of 5 green rows).
Total rows = 5 green + 105 pastel rows + 2 green = 112 rows.
Change to the white yarn.
Round 1: Starting in one of the corners and chain 3. DC around the entire blanket, working 3 DC into each corner ending with a SL ST into the top CH of the first chain 3.
Round 2-4: Start with a CH 3. Then go around the blanket again; however, this time, you will work the DC alternating between the front and back post.
Corners: When you get to the corners, continue to work 3 DC into the middle DC ST from the previous row. However, on the other two stitches from the previous row DCs in the corner – blend those into the FPDC and BPDC. See the photos of the corners to help show the detail.
