Adorable Crochet Blanket Pattern

Peaceful naps and cozy dreams inspired my creativity with this adorable crochet blanket pattern! Just imagine a precious little one wrapped up in the beautiful warmth.

This blanket design is all about crochet texture. I just love the definition of the puff stitches to create shapes in my designs.

Some of my designs are all about textural stripes, both horizontal and vertical. My Wundran, Spring Charms and Enchanted Moments blankets are great examples of this.

My vision for texture in the Cozy Dreams blankets involves simple squares. I think the puff stitches look spectacular confined within squares. And the repeats of miniature plaits everywhere the eye can see is an added bonus.
