Are you ready for a new blanket pattern? Meet the Magnolia Blanket crochet pattern! I absolutely loved designing this blanket and the texture is so beautiful. The blanket creates a zigzag pattern using a crisscross puff stitch within the stripes! Also, it creates a bobble look creating even more texture, but guess what?
Disclaimer: This post contains affiliate links.
It is not bobbles, it is an extended double crochet stitch, that creates the puff look. Don’t worry, I explain how to work those stitches below! Grab your yarn, your hooks and get ready to get hooked on the Magnolia Blanket!
Beanies that I love!!
