Blanket Texture Squares

Have you been following along with the Pineapple & Pine Falling for Texture Blanket CAL? This five week long crochet along is in week number three and I’m excited to be bringing you three brand new square patterns.

In case you aren’t totally familiar with this fun blanket blog hop, here’s a run down. Each week a new designer is publishing 3 free blanket squares, one low texture, one medium texture, and one high texture. To make a full size blanket, you’ll want to make three of each low texture, two of each medium texture, and one of each high texture. Of course you can also make fewer squares for a smaller blanket. Be sure to join the Pineapple & Pine Maker Community to get all the details and follow along.

Don’t want to wait each week for new squares? You can buy all the designs in one affordable, printer friendly, ad free pdf here.

For this CAL, all the designers used WeCrochet Mighty Stitch. This blanket is monochromatic, but Mighty Stitch is available in tons of gorgeous colors so you could pick endless palettes. It’s a beautiful worsted weight with a nice sheen – perfect for a cozy blanket!
