Slanted Puff Stitch Textured Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

This textured baby blanket crochet pattern uses a version of the slanted puff stitch. The stitch creates a beautiful texture on both sides of the work. Best of all, you can work this up in either boy or girl colors.

I did mine in a single color throughout, but you could just as easy use up your scraps and work this up in pretty stripes if you like.

Either way, this puff crochet blanket is perfect for the stroller, tummy time or for keeping warm in the car.

Finished Size

The finished size measures 33 inches square. A stitch multiple is included in the crochet blanket pattern if you want to adjust the size. Here is a baby blanket sizes chart, which includes other sizes as well.

The Yarn

I used a baby yarn, Bernat Baby Sport, with a 4 mm crochet hook. Any similar baby yarn will work. And if you’re not making this for a baby, you can use a regular worsted weight as well.

How much yarn do I need for a puff stitch blanket? The puff stitch not only takes longer to crochet, but it also takes up a lot more yarn than regular stitches! For this puff stitch crochet blanket, I used up a 300g ball, and the finished size came out fairly small.

The one thing with this blanket is that I found it took forever to crochet up. The crochet puff stitch pattern takes forever to crochet. In addition to that, this is worked with slip stitches and chains, which makes it even slower! But, it’s a beautiful textured stitch pattern that you’ll enjoy showing off. A free video tutorial is included at the end of the written pattern and photo tutorial.
