Juniper Circle Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

The Juniper Circle Blanket is a celebration of rich texture, beautiful colours, and ultra soft yarn! Start from the center, and work your way outwards with a 4-round repeat using rich crochet stitches that make this blanket a show-stopper! I’m so excited to offer The Juniper Circle Blanket as a free crochet pattern below, but also as a Lion Brand Yarn Kit where you get all of the yarn (in any colour) plus the pattern delivered right to your door!

I used some absolutely stunning Lion Brand Mandala Ombre to crochet The Juniper Circle Blanket, and it was a dream to work with (the colours are so gorgeous!). The Yarn is so soft, and the stitch definition is unreal.

Each color in Mandala® Ombré gradually blends into the other in both tonal and multi-colored versions. The printing technique allows for some of the cream yarn base to show through, creating a hand-dyed, artisanal effect. Mandala Ombré is slightly thicker than the original, spun with multiple plies of premium acrylic, which give it the look and feel of merino at a fraction of the cost.
