Repeating Crochet Stitches

A wonderful project for both beginner and expert alike, this blanket has a repeating rhythm of stitches. Once you get beyond the first row, this pattern works up very quickly without much counting.

Fluffy Yarn

I purchased an entire box of this fluffy yarn that was on sale a few months ago. By box I mean about 20 skeins. Talk about a yarn haul. However, it was not until the yarn actually showed up that I fully understood what the yarn was like. This yarn Baby Soft Boucle is considered a 5 bulky. There are lots of little loops. It took me a few days of pondering how this yarn could be used.

I think this was a perfect way. Make a blanket!

As you can see in the photo below, the stitches are a bit hard to see. That is why the first row is the hardest, but after that, the blanket works up very quickly.

Beginning Row of Baby Soft Boucle Yarn

First Row

When crocheting the first row, I tugged a bit on the beginning chain stitches to see where to insert my crochet hook for the next set of stitches. Make sure that you have good lighting for this first row. Once this row is complete, it is easy to see right where to insert your hook as it is between to double crochet stitches.

Just look at the thick, fluffy results!

So soft and cuddly.

Tips on Working with Fluffy Yarn

The first tip is to feel your way through the yarn. Once you do a few rounds you should be able to get a feel for where your crochet hook needs to go to achieve the stitches as you learn the new yarn and hook tension. Additionally, when first working with this yarn, it might be best to avoid dark colors. They are hard to see the stitches in anyway and the fluffy yarn, makes it even more difficult. Lastly, use a stitch that works with the yarn, not against it.

Bonus Crochet Patterns

I chose to change skeins of yarn at the end of a row rather than in the middle a row or wherever the yarn ran out. Therefore, there was enough yarn to make a SPA set too. Same stitches, just different beginning stitches and rows.

This would be lovely for gifting too. Bonus, it is a great way to use those leftover scraps of yarn.
