Welcome my colleagues in love with crochet. What good screens here on this free crochet patterns site, I confess I was longing to share crochet patterns and also learn new things about this beautiful crochet art, but this month was very busy due to my change, but now I'm back excited and happy to go back to doing what I love with my heart. And right now I share this wonderful colorful crochet blanket by Sonoma. I am completely in love with this pattern as well as being beautiful it is very comfortable and in the cold season it should get very warm. The interesting thing about this pattern that your way of making it is very easy as you will see in the tutorial below with graphics and step by step written very explanatory. I hope you really like this tutorial and have a lot of fun making this beautiful crochet blanket pattern. Then crochet big kiss and get to work:
