Join Jim Hawkins on an adventure of a lifetime with Stevenson's Treasure Island Crochet Blanket. We love the look of this blanket that reminds us of the ocean lapping at the shoreline and even looks a little like an unburied treasure chest filled with gold. This pattern includes a picture tutorial of how to crochet hexagons, if you need to learn or need a refresher. You'll love the contrast between colors and how well they seem to fit together. Be ready for some great compliments on this crochet afghan.

I want to do this but looks like I can't have enough of the yellow hexagons. Thanks for having the pattern on the front page. I have pinned this afghan.
