I have a new crochet tutorial out today, yay! I know you love the crochet tutorials and this one does not disappoint! It features a border on the blanket and a bulky yarn so that this project will work up nice and quick. It’s lacey enough that it can be used all year round, but still keep baby warm! I used the LionBrand Tweed Stripes yarn so that it would have an interesting look without having to change different types of yarn, the yarn does the work for you which is nice! Especially if you are a beginner and still getting the hang of it.

16:50 How to find the about box
If you are a loose crocheter, go down 1 hook size. The pattern calls for a size K, but you can use a J. I am a looser crocheter and I ended up needing 1 more ball of yarn than the 4 suggested in the pattern. I didn’t use much, but I needed it to finish the border, so keep that in mind and check your gauge if you think you might be off. The balls of yarn aren’t expensive, so it wasn’t a big deal but I wanted you to be aware of that!
This picot edge can be used for many different blanket patterns, so feel free to add this idea to other blanket patterns!
This is a great beginner pattern because it is very repetitive. Once you get the hang of the v stitch, you are good to go!
There should be 30 V stitches in each row, so if anything seems off, check that first!
