    I love the stitch on the video clip that shows what looks like a double crochet cluster in shades of blue. I cannot find that pattern on any of the associated patterns. If I’m overlooking, my apologies. Can you point me in the right direction to find that stitch. I believe is would make a beautiful blanket.
