Pom-Pom Blanket

Lion Brand® Babysoft®


9 sts + 7 rows = 4 inches [10 cm] in Baby Blocks pattern using 2 strands of yarn held together.

Yarn is used doubled throughout.

When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Making a Gauge Swatch


With 2 strands of A held tog, ch 76.

Row 1 Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across – 75 sts. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 2-4 Work even in sc.

Fasten off A; attach MC. Ch 1, turn.

Row 5 Sc in first 3 sc, [sc in sc 4 rows below next st, sc in next 3 sc] across. Ch 1, turn.

Row 6 Sc in each sc across.

Fasten off MC; attach B. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 7-10 Work even in sc.

Fasten off B; attach MC. Ch 1, turn.

Row 11 Sc in first sc, [sc in sc 4 rows below next sc, sc in next 3 sc] across, ending sc in sc 4 rows below next sc, sc in last sc. Ch 1, turn.

Row 12 Work even in sc.

Fasten off MC; attach C. Ch 1, turn.

Rows 13-16 Work even in sc.

Fasten off C; attach MC. Ch 1, turn.

Repeat Rows 5-16 for Baby Blocks pattern and, AT SAME TIME, work sc rows in color sequence A, B, C. Work until there are a total of 21 colored sc sections (65 rows total), ending with Row 5. (Do not ch 1 at end of row.)



Work 2 more sc in last sc. Rotate work to side, work sc evenly spaced along side of blanket, work 3 sc in corner, sc across spare loops of beg ch, work 3 sc in corner, work sc evenly spaced up remaining side, ending 2 sc in first sc at beg of rnd; join with slip st to top of beg sc. Ch 1, turn.

Work 2 more rnds sc with MC, working 3 sc in each corner and ending with slip st to join.

Weave in ends.

If desired, make small pompoms with leftover A, B, and C, and sew them at regular intervals all around the edging.

Pom-Pom Blanket Reviewed by MONICA MCKIRDY on 2009-04-05 *****
I've made this blanket twice, choosing my own colors each time. It was a huge success at both baby showers. I noticed it works up a bit larger than the picture suggests, so definitely check the gauge if you want it to be precise. I'm sure I'll be making this one again!
