CROCHET ALONG INSPIRATION:
Somewhere I always find inspiration is in the color schemes and nursery decor I see on Pinterest. I always wanted to design something using the Wild One theme and these squares came to be just as I had imagined them! My favorite square is the first one which I released today as I kick off this fun TCAL!
I wanted this blanket to be a nice introduction to TC and decided on some fun stitches and techniques to try! I don’t want to give too much away because it is a mystery TCAL after all!

Although you can use yarn from your stash, since this is a themed blanket, it’s preferable you use the same colors. I used Comfy Worsted yarn which was kindly gifted by We Crochet!
Comfy Worsted in Thicket – (COL A) 1340 yards (Size 4 worsted weight yarn; 1.8 oz/ 50 g, 109 yds/100 m; 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic)
Comfy worsted in Parchment – (COL B) 1330 yards (Size 4 worsted weight yarn; 1.8 oz/ 50 g, 109 yds/100 m; 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic)
Comfy worsted in White – (COL C) 1480 yards (Size 4 worsted weight yarn; 1.8 oz/ 50 g, 109 yds/100 m; 75% Pima Cotton, 25% Acrylic)
I absolutely loved working with this yarn. It is a perfect cotton blend for little ones’ sensitive skin since its made up of Pima cotton and acrylic! It is super soft and I love the variety of colors provided! These colors fit my Wild One theme vision so well, it’s the perfect color scheme and I couldn’t be happier. This yarn is also machine washable and dryable which makes it perfect for little ones!
US 10 6 mm Tunisian hook with a 12 in. cord and stopper – I used the Radiant Wood Interchangeable Tunisian crochet hook with cord and stopper gifted from We Crochet. I absolute love this set and did a in depth review over on another blog post that you can check out here.
I love the smooth wood and the colorful mosaic style is so pretty to work with!
US 10.5 6.5 mm hook – I used my Furls Laurel Streamline Wood Hook.
I’m looking forward to using this Olikraft wooden blocking board with rods for the first time and I’ll let you know how it goes!
