Are you ready for a new and unique square blanket crochet pattern?
So, here's the deal... ANYONE can take a simple stitch out of a crochet stitch book, make a large swatch of it, call it a blanket and say they designed it. To me, it's not really designing unless you do something extra. Make it unique to you and change things up a little or a lot.
If you've followed me very long, you know that I am obsessed with blankets. I absolutely LOVE them! I love creating them, crocheting them, wrapping up in them or gifting them! I have a few simple blanket patterns available that use basic stitches and they're nice to have around. When I see them, they seem comfy and useful but don't bring me joy.
I love the challenge of using a variety of stitches that you don't typically see worked together. I want that Ahhh moment when I crochet something amazing. More than that, I want YOU to feel that AHHH moment when you finish crocheting one of my blanket patterns. I want YOU to feel accomplished and feel the joy each time you wrap up in the blanket you made or see the look on a friend's face when they open the gift you made especially for them.

I've wanted to create a square blanket for quite a while now. I just needed the right yarn/color inspiration and some stitches to speak to me. Months ago, I was strolling the yarn isles at my local JoAnn's store and they had Premier Yarn's Everyday yarn for $2 a skein. I could NOT pass that deal up!!! I filled my cart with some amazing fall colors that I wanted to work and then noticed some baby yarn too. It's been years since I've worked with baby yarn and for this price, I figured I'd bring something to life. I grabbed all the grey, white and pink they had. THIS was going to be adorable no matter how it ended. As I started working my first swatch with these colors, I realized that the pink was a 4ww and not the baby yarn. Darn it! I should have paid attention though I won't complain about another yarn shopping day lol. I set the pink aside for something else and ordered the yellow online. I am thrilled with the change!
The Sunny Day Blanket has been a lot of fun to crochet and I've really enjoyed playing with a bunch of beautiful textured stitches . I hope that you'll have fun working this along with me! This is a great blanket to play with color so grab your stash and make it yours. The original is worked in Premier Everyday Baby Yarn #3 in yellow, grey and white. I'm working a 2nd blanket to crochet with you during this CAL using Premier Everyday Antipilling #4ww Yarn in rainbow colors.

Welcome to the MCAL for the Cabled Blooms Blanket!
A few words of encouragement before we start. The skill level for this crochet pattern is considered intermediate because of the use of post stitches and a few other stitches that a beginner may not be familiar with. I will be adding photo & video tutorials to help with those stitches so don't be afraid to try it out! It never hurts to try.
While I used Yarnspirations Caron Simply Soft Yarn for my pattern swatch, I will be using Premier Yarn's Everyday yarn for my full blanket. It's all about the color for me and it's ok to use something different. This pattern will work well using a variety of yarns. If you enjoy working with thread, consider working 1 section wide of the instructions to create a stunning table runner. If you enjoy working with baby yarn, go for it! If Red Heart Super Saver is your go to, go right ahead!
The size of your finished project will vary from mine but that's ok. I'll be giving you instructions to work as close to your desired size as you can.
