Easy Fall Blanket… Free Crochet Pattern

Simple stitching, random strip pattern and beautiful tweed yarn bring this Easy Fall Blanket pattern all together… Sit and watch your favorite show or take this as your car ride project… So easy!

Recently, I was out at the Mall of America in Minneapolis, Minnasota with my good friends Kathy from ELK Studio Handcrafted Crochet Designs and Jennifer from A Crocheted Simplicity … We had a blast shopping, eating and having cocktails.. and of course we crocheted… But, we stopped by the brand new store in the mall…Crochet! and wow, we had a blast!

I found this beautiful wool blend yarn and fell in love.. I knew right away, A Easy Fall Blanket was going to be on my hook… I put the link for this yarn in the material list if you would like to use the same yarn.. or you can pick any worsted weight yarn you love!

If you have a chance to head to The Mall of America, make sure to stop by Crochet!  Lots of great yarn and all price points are available… But you can also order online… so no worries!

So if you are ready.. Let’s start this fun, easy pattern!
