This crochet pattern is for a sweet baby blanket reminiscent of cupcakes, hence its ‘Icing on the Cake’ name!
The design includes a variety of stitches, including shells, and bobble stiches made on a contrasting colour background. The pattern creates pretty colourful stripes, making a fun and eye-catching blanket.
Crochet level: competent beginner to intermediate.
The instructions are for a baby blanket size (approx. 69 x 83 cm / 27 x 33 inches) however, the formula needed for increasing your foundation chain in order to make a wider blanket is also detailed in the pattern
Tension / gauge : 18 stitches and 19 rows = 10cm measured over double crochet (UK terms) using a 4 mm hook
Tension is not critical for this project but will affect the finished size of the blanket and how much yarn is used.
