What better way to welcome relaxation than with a hand made blanket? No need to leave this project at home, each square is a quick “to go” project for easy on the go crochet creativity then joined with a decorative zig zag stitch to keep the finishing interesting. See where the yarn takes you, use the suggested colors or create your own variation. The fun of this pattern is in the creative license you take with it as you work your crochet magic. Prefer not to work in color? Do it all in a single colorway, what ever you decide, make it something you and your loved ones can enjoy for years to come.
Want to make it a little heavier to use as a weighted blanket? When you are piecing it together in each corner add a stainless steel washer and crochet right over it as you seam.
