5 thoughts on “Paquin Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

  1. I tried this pattern a few months ago and the end results was not what I was expecting. I thought blocking would solve the problem but did not. Question when you do your popcorn stitch did you do as your stitch description or did you add a chain. On my Afghan the area of the popcorns were really tight and cause the piece to buckle and curve. I have taken it loose for a redo in the popcorn petals. What suggestions do you have for this problem?

    1. Hello!! If you are finding your Popcorn sections to be too tight, you can absolutely add a chain to them! Just be sure that you don’t lose track of their placement for the stitch count. Another thing you can do to combat the buckling if that is happening, is to work the first part (the round part) of the blanket in a smaller hook size, and then complete the rest of the blanket in a larger hook size. I hope that helps! Happy crocheting.
