Wrap yourself in this cozy Hooded Butterfly Blanket. Perfect for cuddling, play and display. Our Butterfly Blanket Crochet Pattern features large wing panels and circle granny squares that are seamed together to form beautiful wings. The stained glass colour effect is made by combining 2 strands of Bernat Pop, and the rest of the blanket is worked in 1 strand of Bernat Softee Chunky.
The fun part of planning a design is always the yarn! I’m a little obsessed with cake yarns, they are so fun and beautiful to work with. For the Hooded Butterfly blanket, I decided to try Bernat Pop holding 2 strands together. I did a bunch of experimenting and was pleasantly surprised at how fun they blend together when using 2 strands at once. As a result, it was the perfect look I wanted for my butterfly wings.
The Crochet Hooded Butterfly Blanket is a fun crochet blanket for all ages. The crochet pattern includes a toddler, child and adult size.

The yarn used to make the Crochet Hooded Butterfly Blanket is Bernat Softee Chunky Super Bulky Weight yarn from Mary Maxim and Bernat Pop. Bernat Softee Chunky is 100% Acrylic and a lighter Super Bulky yarn. Bernat Pop is a 100% acrylic Worsted weight yarn #4 that I’ve doubled to make a super bulky weight. You can find a large selection of colours at an affordable price below.
If you’re looking for a yarn substitute I’ve listed a few that I think will work well. Make sure to meet the pattern gauge of
8 sts and 9 rows equal to 4″ in sc with 10mm hook – For Toddler Size
7 sts and 7 rows equal to 4″ in sc with 16mm crochet hook – For Child and Adult Size
It’s hard to find a Super Bulky Weight substitute for this yarn because most are thicker and bulkier than Bernat Softee chunky. The easiest sub is to use 2 strands of worsted weight yarn. Here are a few of my favourites.

I love crocheting with my Streamline Hooks from Furls. They are light and easy to work with. I especially love the large crochet hooks. They are so nice to work with and I can crochet for hours without hand pain. I used the Aries 10mm crochet hook and the Taurus 6.5mm for the Crochet Hooded Butterfly Blanket in Toddler size. You will need a 16mm hook if crocheting the child or adult size. Grab a Q 16mm Hook HERE. Use code MJS15 for 15% off.

The Butterfly blanket is worked in separate pieces then seamed together. Each wing panel and circle granny square is crocheted separately in 2 strands of Bernat Pop then edged in 1 strand of Bernat Softee Chunky. The hood and centre butterfly panel is crocheted as one piece, worked from the top down in Bernat Softee Chunky. The top section of the blanket is seamed to form the hood. Turning ch doesn’t count as a stitch unless stated. Complete each section of the pattern in order. Step by Step video on Youtube.
