The braided puff crochet baby blanket is a beautiful blanket that features an elegant braided puff style and double crochet.
It works up quickly with this easy to follow pattern. The final blanket measures 30″ X 30″ but can be easily adjusted if you need it larger/smaller.

Gauge and multiples:
Multiples of 12 + 3
Gauge: 9 sts X 5 rows = 3″
I hook- 5.5 mm
Medium worsted weight yarn- I used Yarn Bee Denim In Color in “Stonewash”, 3.5 oz for the blue blanket and the same brand in “Green” for the green blanket. The pink blanket is Crafter’s Secret in “Pink”, 7 oz. You will need about 12 oz for a car seat size blanket, measures 30″ X 30″.
Any soft medium worsted weight yarn will be a good choice. I recommend Lion Brand Feel Like Butta yarn.
Notes: Turn after each row.
Puff Stitch: Yarn over, insert hk in st and pull up a loop, yarn over and insert hook again pulling up another loop, yarn over and insert hk one more time and pull up a loop. Now yarn over and pull through all loops on the hook.
dc- double crochet
Row 1: Puff in third ch from the hk, puff in the same st, ch 2, sk next st, dc the next 9 sts, sk next st, puff in last st, ch 2, puff in same st (73).
