As I said, Paintbox yarns were kind enough to provide the yarn for this project. I chose their cotton Aran because it is summer here and difficult to crochet with anything else than cotton. Especially when you have a blanket on your lap. 😉

I chose to work with a slightly bigger hook from the one that is usually suggested for Aran yarns because of the way this blanket is crocheted. If I were to use a smaller hook the outcome would be a stiffer and heavier blanket.

By using this bigger crochet hook (6 mm) the result was airier without losing any of the texture. I switched to the smaller 5.50 mm for the trim though, so that the bobbles could have more structure.

Although I used cotton, you can use any Aran yarn you like, even wool or acrylic. Just keep in mind that you have to check your gauge first. 🙂

There will be some front post stitches involved in this pattern, in a somewhat different way than the one you are used to, but no worries. I have a photo tutorial for the correct placement and way to make them.

Also, although this blanket is a baby size (30×35 inches), I offer you some instructions so you can customise it a lot. You could practically make it any size you like. How cool is that?
