This project has been added to your afghan patterns.
One of the best things about Christmas morning is cozying up around the Christmas tree with a cup of cocoa. The Christmas Morning Easy Crochet Blanket only makes you cozier as a Christmas crochet delight. This blanket uses a different design in each colored stripe, from bobbles to V-stitch, making a whimsical and fun overall afghan pattern. Plus, the blanket is edged with puffy pompoms, which only makes it more adorable. Enjoy Christmas morning even more this year under the cozy warmth of this crochet blanket.
