Vintage Crocheted Blanket
Designed by Churchmouse Yarns friend Pam Reese, she loved to take a familiar, even nostalgic idea and give it a modern twist. Like this baby blanket, for example. They used her idea to create a pattern with 2- and 10-color sequences. The design is amply sophisticated for any decor so they've also sized it up to afghan and throw proportions here. As Pam would say, “Handsome!”
