The Marshmallow Crochet Baby Blanket is a nice fluffy baby blanket with lots of texture. You can make this with any yarn or hook size. Samples shown in photo the Striped Marshmallow Crochet Baby Blanket and the Blanket behind is a single color for a solid look. Either are a beautiful marshmallowy choice.

Tools & Yarn:
size L hook (or L/11 – 8.0mm)
Bernat Baby Blanket yarn used in sample. Super Bulky 6 weight.
344 yards Color A – Vanilla 03008.
258 yards Color B – Baby Rose 04417.
3 stitches and 6 rows = 4 inches in Textured Stitch pattern
Make a chain that is a multiple of 2 plus 3. Mine was 75. (Made 35″ wide in this yarn & hook). In this sample I used a larger hook (N/15 10.mm) for the foundation chain only to see the stitches better. After creating chain be sure to switch to the main hook size.
Row 1: dc in 3rd ch from hook. Skip next 2 ch. *(sc, 2 dc) in next ch, skip next 2 ch; repeat from * across, sc in last ch.
Row 2: ch 2, turn, 2 dc in 1st stitch. Skip next 2 sts, *(sc, 2 dc) in next ch, skip next 2 sts; rep from * across. sc in top of turning ch. Repeat “Row 2” till desired length.
Starting on Color A crochet 3 rows following Textures Stitch pattern. Change Color B on the last single crochet yarn over; so when starting the turning chain the loop on the hook is the next color. Crochet 3 rows and change color. Repeat till ending a total of 3 rows Color A at desired final blanket length.
Finishing. Add textured stitch along sides if desired in Color A, B or a combination as desired (sample did not add a border). Weave in ends.
Alternate yarn weight & hook:
Use worsted weight with cast on of 108 with a J-10 hook.
