From the designer: "Choose your own adventure with this customizable beginner crochet blanket pattern. My step-by-step instructions will guide you through the entire project; but this pattern is so flexible you can switch things up with any yarn, any stitch, and any size you’d like. It’s a wonderful way to use up scrap yarn you have laying around (I recommend using at least 5 different colors if you want them to alternate nicely) and can be worked in pieces at your leisure. There are endless color combinations! The thing that makes this blanket extra special is its striking seams. Wherein crocheters are usually trying to hide their seams, these are meant to stand out, using thick strands of contrasting yarn. The end result is a beautiful modern farmhouse look."
NotesTechniques used / Special stitches: front loop and back loop only. Full explanations are given in the pattern.
