Today, I am excited to be joining with some great bloggers in support of a wonderful cause. Kim of A Girl and A Glue Gun has organized a blanket extravaganza this month in support Luke’s Loves and the Project Linus charity. You can read all about these great organizations and how you can get involved by donating a handmade blanket to a child in need right HERE.
To support this cause, I decided to share a new crochet baby blanket pattern – the feather and fan baby blanket.
This pattern is basically a mini version of one of my most popular crochet patterns, the Chunky Feather and Fan Afghan. I sized it down using a lighter yarn and smaller hook and made a couple other small adjustments to end up with this pretty, lacy baby blanket.
Feather and Fan Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern Supplies:
- Worsted Weight Yarn – I used Knit Picks Brava Acrylic in Mint, Tranquil, and Dove Heather (I used about 5 balls or 1100 yards in total). I also recommend Red Heart Soft for an affordable worsted weight acrylic.
- Size K (6.50 mm) Hook
- Yarn Needle
I would recommend reviewing my original feather and fan afghan pattern for more details about how to work the pattern as well as a stitch chart. UPDATE: I have made a video for this stitch! YAY! I will add the video at the end of this post. Please subscribe to my Youtube channel HERE.
