The “Sebastian” Crochet Blanket — Free Pattern
This blanket is a little larger than many that I design. It certainly can be used for a baby, but is a wonderful size for children and for adults as they sit in their favorite chair, watching tv. It is made with a very easy stitch pattern called, “alternate double clusters”.
I think you will love the finished blanket for yourself, your child or as a gift! You will probably want to make many more than just one!! Enjoy the pattern!!
