Winter Wonderland Afghan and Pillow

What could be better than stepping in from the cold to a wonderfully warm Christmas crochet blanket? The Winter Wonderland Afghan and Pillow are here to keep you cozy during the colder months! This crochet blanket pattern is a pop of bright color during a rather dreary season. The beautiful snowflake motifs looks exactly like the real thing. With a variety of different crochet stitches, including the half double crochet and the treble crochet stitch, this blanket is anything but boring!

Love the Winter Wonderland afghan for its color which deviates from the usual red Christmas color. The choice of orange here signifies freedom and independence of mind in choosing what truly makes us happy and joyful this Christmas season. Colors don't matter but the meaning of the celebration does. Cheers!
