April Flowers Baby Blanket

Spring Inspired Baby Blanket

I am so happy to announce that The April CAL at Furls is designed by me! The April Flowers Baby Blanket showcases my love for Spring, especially enjoying the weather and admiring the flowers as they bloom. 


April Flowers Baby Blanket CAL

It’s finally springtime with full of flowers, sunshine and warmer weather which inspired me to create this wonderful baby blanket. My favourite season is Spring when you can take long walks, enjoy the weather and admire the flowers and all the other wonders that this season can offer.

This beautifully textured baby blanket is expressing my love to Spring, showing beautiful colors and filling my soul with sunshine just looking at it!

  • Scissors

  • NOTE: Blocking is essential to enhance the textured patternwork of your blanket and make sure your squares are the same size

Difficulty:

Intermediate. Although, this is an intermediate/advanced pattern, advanced beginners can join in too as the pattern will have CLEAR and EASY TO UNDERSTAND instructions with some step by step photos.


Size:

The finished size is 76 cm x 112 cm / 30″ x 44″ AFTER BLOCKING.

However, if you use different yarn weight, the finished size will be bigger or smaller.


Gauge:

4 half double crochet stitches and 3 rows = 1″ / 2.5cm

The finished size will also differ if you have a loose or tight tension.


Helpful tips:

Don’t get stressed about the time frame. It’s all about the joy of crocheting, so if it takes more time to complete each part it’s still okay! This is not a race. It’s a journey, our journey together to create something unique and beautiful with our creativity.

You should block your squares before joining in part 3, which helps you to make them the same size.

This pattern can be a great stashbuster too as you can use as many colors as you want to make a  really great, colorful blanket!

US TERMS used throughout.


Thank you so much for your time to read through this information! I can’t wait to start and see all your beautiful creations!

With Love,

Krisztina

  1. I know this is a weird question. I have part 1 but don’t remember where I went to get it and now I need Part 2 (and has 3 been released?). Where do I go to get the next steps?
    THANKS!!

    1. Click on the link above and that takes you to the Furls website. On the top you can click on the options which says part one, two or three. Everything is there, the pattern is fully released now.

  2. Help-I can’t find a row 4 in the border instruction-which is super important since it is supposed to be repeated in row 6. We have round 2, fastening off. Then round 3 where we join the white yarn. It then goes straight to round 5 which is supposed to be the same as 4 and 6 which is also a repeat of four. Help!?!
