Free Fawn River Blanket!

Yay!! It's time for another FREE blanket pattern! 

This blanket is called "Fawn River Blanket." <

The name came from a mixture of several suggestions from my Facebook friends. There were so many good ideas, and I wanted to incorporate them ALL! But, I decided to go with Fawn River because this blanket reminds me of a woodsy, serene place. 

Come lay with me beneath the big oak tree...Can you feel the soft, warm breeze? Can you hear the babble of the brook? Is the gentle sunlight dancing on your skin between the leaves?  It makes me want to take a nap and dream of my days as a child back on the farm. 

This pattern uses half double crochet (half treble for UK readers), and a front post double treble (UK front post triple treble) stitch. The border uses single crochet. If you know those can make this blanket! It is so warm and squishy and thick and soft!!!

I have also made YouTube videos for the pattern and for the edging instructions. The blanket instruction video has an in-depth discussion about how to size your beginning chain for any size blanket/project. You can make dishcloths, pillows, blankets...whatever your heart desires. :)
