The fun part in planning a design is always the yarn!  I’m just a little obsessed right now with cake yarns.  For my last project I used Caron Cakes so this time I decided to try out Bernat Pop.  Little miss picked out her favourite colour combo blues, pinks and purples (snow queen)!  I did a bunch of experimenting and was pleasantly surprised at how fun they blend together when using 2 strands at once.  This was the perfect look I wanted for my butterfly wings.

To make a child size blanket you’ll need 4 and an adult 6 balls.  I’ve modelled my little girl in the adult size. Go with the adult if you want an extra big blanket they can grow into.

The butterfly blanket is made by crocheting panels and circle granny squares.  They are edged in Bernat Softee chunky then seamed together.

The hood and body are crocheted as one piece. You will need 6- 8 balls of Bernat Softee Chunky to complete the body and all the edging.

The blanket is worked in single crochet stitches with a 16 mm Q hook.  This makes for a quick design.  The blanket can be worked up over a weekend.  It’s sure to impress as a gift or would make a perfect Halloween costume!

The blanket also includes a video tutorial.  If you’re a visual learner this will definitely help you create the blanket of your dreams!  There are so many fun colour combos to try out!  My testers found the pattern easy to follow and crocheted up this design fast without the help of the video.  Here are some of the great pics they sent me of their butterflies.
