Checkerboard Crochet Blanket- beginner blanket crochet pattern
The lovely Autumn colors of copper and cream cream create a checkerboard pattern, but you can choose any color you want to create your beautiful masterpiece. The lovely hand crocheted Pumpkin Spice blanket was designed in my studio in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The soft washable yarns create a lovely warm blanket. The blanket is reversible, one side is more coppery and the other side is more cream. This blanket makes a wonderful housewarming, Christmas or wedding gift. The instructions in the pattern require counting between stitches and the crocheter needs to be comfortable changing colors.
The blanket is 43 x 60" though you can create this blanket in any size as directions are given for adapting this pattern to other sizes.
