A super pillowy Crochet Cloud is heavenly!

Crochet Cloud

By Kristen Mangus

The Crochet Cloud Mat, and smaller accent, is a SUPER puffy way to make the Marshmallow Crochet Blanket in a new way.  It would make a perfect baby prop or baby play mat*.  Imagine making a smaller version and using it for a baby’s mobile or an accent on a blanket. Instructions are provided for both versions.

*The Crochet Cloud Mat would not be something to leave your baby on unsupervised but the effect it makes is really sweet and highly textured.

Sizes:

Large cloud measures 44″ X 22″

Small cloud measures 8″ X 4 1/2″

For the crochet cloud I’m using the following tools

baby blanket version and pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/marshmallow-crochet-baby-blanket

Tools & Yarn:

Large Crochet Cloud:

size U hook/ US 50 if Tunisian hook used (25mm) used for both sizes.

3 balls – Bernat Blanket BIG yarn  26016 Country Blue used in sample. Jumbo 7 weight.

Used 3 balls less 5 yards in sample (about 91 yards).

Small Crochet Cloud:size L hook (or L/11 – 8.0mm)

Approx. 18 yards – Bernat Baby Blanket Yarn – color White

Abbreviations:

ch – chain
dc – double crochet
sc – single crochet
st(s) – stitch(es)

Gauge:

3 stitches and 1 row = 4 inches in Textured Stitch pattern
(1 ball does 2.33 rows)

Pattern Notes:

Make a chain that is a multiple of 2 plus 3.  It is important to make sure foundation chain doesn’t twist while establishing the foundation.  The foundation row takes the longest.  Once you start Row 2 you will see how fast the rows work and how fast it grows on you!
