Snowdrift Blanket: FREE crochet pattern



The free crochet pattern for a Snowdrift Blanket is finally here! The textured stitch pattern is easy yet elegant, and timeless. I chose gorgeous Scheepjes Metropolis yarn for my sample (kindly made by Esther Schippers). After blocking the blanket is very soft with a wonderful drape. The size is generous, too. The blanket measures approx. 160cm/63in from corner to corner. But you can make your own blanket bigger or smaller as needed by reducing the pattern repeats, or adding more. You can either follow instructions on my blog or purchase a print-friendly pdf with all instructions and progress pictures on Ravelry HERE and Etsy HERE. Hope you enjoy!
