I have not tried this one yet, but it is on my must make list. I love the bright bold colors and so have to find the Red Heart Mexicana Yarn. I have not seen it yet but will be looking for it, because it so makes this blanket. This is a very easy pattern to whip up and looks so good. It will make a great gift or even on to keep. Thank you so much for sharing this free crochet blanket pattern.
