Are you ready for another crochet along!
We had so much fun with our Nesting Dolls CAL that I thought it would be great to try this blanket. And it is perfectly timed for you to finish in time for the holidays (think gift idea!). The Little Boy Blue Blanket is full of fun stitch work and color opportunities and was designed to especially compliment Lion Brand’s Heartland Yarn Collection (I’ve used it and it’s awesome … so extremely soft and the colors are beautiful!).
Here is how we’ll work it … The blanket crochet along will officially kick off on September 30th and run through until early December. New parts will be posted every 2-weeks so you should have plenty of time to work up each section. I have started a Ravelry group so we can share our progress and help each other out with any questions we may have or you can also feel free to post up your pictures on my Facebook page.
