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 using Bernat Pop.  Little miss wanted me to use her favourite colour combo of blues, pinks and purples. Therefore the colour I choose was snow queen.  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 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.
