Crochet Triangle Puffs Blanket

Crochet Triangle Puffs Blanket

Thank you to our friends at Yarnspirations for sending us this Red Heart Dreamy yarn to try out! It’s a heavier weight acrylic yarn that reminds me of wool, but has a really soft texture. It works up to a really warm blanket, perfect for babies who live in cold places :). 

Crochet Triangle Puffs Blanket

I’ve been wanting to make another version of my Diamond Berry Stitch Blanket and experiment using some different stitches, but when I started this blanket I decided to cut the diamonds in half and make triangles instead!

Stitches

Half Double Crochet (HDC) in between the posts: YO (yarn over), insert your hook in between the posts of the row below (or under all 3 loops of stitch) pull up a loop, YO, pull through all loops on hook.

Tassels

Before adding tassels I worked one round of HDC around the edge of the blanket, working 3 HDCs into the corners.

Take two pieces of yarn and fold them in half.  Insert the folded end into the chain space above the last row of single crochet.

And pull tight to make a knot.

And that’s it! I put my tassels every 3 chain spaces above the last row of HDC, but you can space yours out however you desire.  You can also make the tassels longer by using a bigger notebook, or trim them down if you want them to be shorter.
