Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Here's a blanket pattern that really rocks! This impressive, twin-sized guitar blanket is a must have for the serious music lover. The pattern contains color change instructions as well as line by line written instructions. Just follow the simple drop and carry style, no chart reading necessary! A chart is included, however. The color changing technique used is smooth and does not leave unsightly strings hanging on the back side of the blanket. The details of the guitar are added as applique for interest and texture.

This pattern is named after my brother, Dan.

I live in Seattle, Washington with my loving husband and kitty. Since learning to crochet in college I have spent much of the past several years improving my skills and immersing myself in the subculture. In addition to crochet my hobbies include quilling, baking, and reading. My favorite color is purple. Shine on and happy hooking!
