When I started designing the Dream Puffs Blanket, I thought it would be a baby blanket – but this stitch is so darn squishy I decided it’s for everybody! So here is the Dream Puffs Blanket free crochet pattern in 5 sizes – you’re going to love cuddling up in this one!

The Dream Puffs Blanket uses this fantastic v-stitch puff stitch combo move that makes for an easy pattern to memorize that creates tons of texture, loft, and warmth. The lovely color changes are created by using two colorways of Lion Brand Scarfie – a self-striping yarn worked in stripes! I used two colorways with a lot in common, but I can’t wait to see what combos you all come up with!
