Welcome to the Winter Berries Blanket Crochet Along!
Sharna Moore, the crochet maven behind Sweet_Sharna, created the Winter Berries Blanket as an easy seasonal crochet along designed for makers of all abilities. Your Winter Berries Blanket would make a gorgeous gift for someone special or an easy sofa makeover for the festive season!
Using seven colors of Hayfield Soft Twist, the Winter Berries Blanket has been divided into five manageable sections. For the CAL, the sections will be released weekly with multiple stitch patterns to keep the crocheting fun and engaging! Add more stitches or repeat your favorite stitch patterns to make your blanket unique - just be sure to purchase more yarn if you intend on making it larger. The finished blanket is approximately 37.5" by 63".
We have kits available with the original color combination, as well as the second "Frosted Berries" option! If you'd like to choose your own colors, we have a wide selection of Hayfield Soft Twist to pick from.
This is a great blanket project for beginners or anyone looking to add new stitch patterns to their knitting toolbox!
