Joseph’s Puff Stitch Blanket

Free-Crochet-Pattern-Joseph's-Puff-Stitch-Blanket

Joseph’s Puff Stitch Blanket
Crochet Pattern
Intermediate Skill Level
Designed by Jessie Rayot

Here is a fun puff stitch pattern I designed for a baby blanket for a friend of mine. I have used modern baby boy colors in Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice yarn, but you can use whatever colors make you happy! By working the puff stitches around the posts of the row below, they create little polka dots that drop down into the previous color. The texture of the little dots are fun for little fingers as well!

Joseph's-Puff-Stitch-Crochet-Blanket-Free-Pattern

Sizes:
About 36” by 45” or whatever size you want!

Yarn:
Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, 4 skeins of Chocolate Cake, and 2 skeins each of Mint, Lamb, and Aqua
~or~ any yarn you can get gauge with
~or~ just about any yarn in any gauge if you just want to use this as a stitch pattern!

Hook:
US 10/J/6.00 mm

Gauge:
12 sts x 16 rows of sc in a 4” square

Stitches and Skills used:
ch ~ chain
sc ~ single crochet
Hdc ~ half double crochet
St(s) ~ stitche(es)

Special Stitches:
Starting sc: Make a slip knot and place the loop on your hook, insert hook into the first st of the row, yo, pull through (2 loops on hook), yo, pull through both loops.

Starting hdc: Make a slip knot and place the loop on your hook, yo, insert hook into the first st of the row, yo, pull through (3 loops on hook), yo, pull through all 3 loops.

puff st ~ puff stitch: [yo, insert hook into st, yo, pull through] 4 times (9 loops on hook), yo, pull through all loops.

Fp puff st: make a puff stitch around the front post of the indicated st as follows: [yo, insert hook from front to back and then from back to front again around the post of the st, pulling the post forward, yo, pull through] 4 times (9 loops on hook), yo, pull through all loops.

Joseph's-Puff-Stitch-Blanket-Free-Crochet-Pattern

Getting Started:
Pay attention to which side each row is worked. All the hdc rows are worked from the right side, the sc rows with the fp puff sts are worked from the right side, and the rows of just sc are worked from the wrong side.

Make sure to look at the photos or watch the video to be sure you are starting and stopping each row in the correct st. It is very easy to make this blanket lean to one side because there are 2 rows worked from the front, then one worked from the back.

Here is a video to help you out.

    What do you mean “clip yarn”?

      Cut the yarn/end off.

    Hello Jesse,

    Thanks for sharing your beautiful pattern. The possible colour combinations are endless. Can I sell the end product?

    Congratulations and best wishes,
    Ana

      Yes, you may, thank you so much for asking. According to USA copyright laws, the copyright only applies to the pattern itself. So no one can tell you what you can or cannot do with the finished item you make. I know some designers say otherwise, but they may just not be aware that that is not within their rights. However, it is always appreciated when you give design credit for the pattern when selling a finished item, and link back to the pattern if you are selling online. I hope your blankets bring you a nice income!

    Nice pattern, but nothing for me. I hate having so many threads to weave in in the end.

    Reply
    • Jessie June 15, 2014, 10:55 pm

      Yup, if you don’t want to weave in ends, this is not the pattern for you. (Unless you make it one solid color, but that would change the look a bit)

    This is an absolutely wonderful pattern! I can’t wait to try it for myself! I have a new nephew joining the family in the spring, and I believe this will be perfect! Thank you!
