The newest addition to our crochet pattern list is: “Blooming spring” blanket

The design looks complicated, but it is effortless and easy to achieve as I used simple stitches to make the separate parts of it. This crochet pattern also gives you so much opportunity and can make it either like mine or customize it with your own imagination.

If you look at some patterns you have found for free or some you have bought before, you will see that the design can often be made in various ways. This crochet blanket is one of them, so be sure to add it to your wishlist or to-do list.

Save it on Ravelry here.

Share it on your social media and Pinterest and help your friends and family find out about this blanket.

As I said, you can make this blanket in different variations, and you will still be using one pattern – Sounds good, right?

Here are some layout ideas that you can try:

  1. Using only crochet solid granny squares and mini flower appliques.
  2. Using only the textured crochet square and big 3D flowers.
  3. Making it as mine but with or whitout butterflies.

Now let me share a  bit of information on the construction of the blanket and about the yarn. If you are not interested in these details, scroll down for the pattern itself…


When I started making this blanket I wanted it to be a CAL(crochet-along) a project that we can all work together. But all the lockdown and home schooling my 1st grade daughter – I was not able to finish it as I wanted and I modified the blanket pattern. It took me longer but i managed to finish it up and share it with you.

The blanket is made with small solid granny sqaures worked in simple doble crochet stitch and big textured squares worked in floret stitch. The floret stitch is made alternating and dc stitches which makes it pretty simple again. And this blanket can be considered as mind-free project as you can take your small squares and crochet everywhere and once you are done with all the piece you will need a space only for the joining process.

Crochet embelishment/appliques that I have used are: big 3D flower, small flower and butterfly. They are crocheted with only simple stitches again and can be made even by a begginer who knows how to make basic stitches.

Oh and the border- I am fan of simple borders as my designs are most of the time overcrowded and when I add colorful or more textured border it makes the blanket to look messy, BUT this time this fancy popcorn bobble border was the perfect finish of this crochet “Blooming Spring” blanket, Don’t you think?

i have tried this border a year or more ago and my bobbles were not looking rifgt BUT this time i made my own way and VOILA it worked.

I made a video tutorial for it as well and now you can use this border for any of your blanket.

Pattern notes:

Finished size of the blanket is 36 inc x 36 inc / 90 cm x 90 cm

Gauge: 4’ x 4’ – 12 sts, 8 rows Stitch used for gauge – double crochet Finished measurement of solid granny square- 5,5 inches / 14 cm Finished measurements of textured square- 11inches / 28 cm


  1. The gauge is not important but the tension is important. First make 1 solid square and 1 big square. measure them. Small granny must be 1/4 of the big square. 1. The blanket is made with 2 different size of squares. For the blanket you need to make 12 solid granny squares and 6 textured granny squares.
  2.  It is better to sew the flowers and butterflies on the squares before you join the blanket. It will be easier, but if you will stick them with hot glue gun it won’t be a problem to do it after joining.
  3. If you would like to make bigger blanket just add 1 more row or column of squares to your blanket. In the blanket I used different colors and order for each flower and butterfly. To make it more easier for you I used letters such as a, b, c to indicate the color. You can find the colors for each flower and butterfly in the chart bellow:

Insert your hook in the corner of both piece and pull a loop, make sc working through both piece, repeat this till the end.

  1. Hi I just started blooming spring blanket and it is working up great but I don’t see the pattern for the flowers and the butterfly link is broken. How can I get these patterns?

    1. We have updated the blog post a year ago and I think we might have removed the free versions of the pattern. You can purchase the blanket via Ravelry.
