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.

This Treasure Island crochet blanket is is really nice. I love the hexagon shapes and the colors blend so well together. I get a sense of calm looking at it. I do not really see "island" but I can understand where the designer was headed.

Hexagons are the new square. I like to make all things motif and I am really liking the hexagon. I like that this pattern is designed to yield eight inch motifs. The bigger the motif the fewer you have to make. If the colors don't suit you, change them. You can not go wrong with a pattern like this.

This is such a pretty pattern. I love the turquoise and yellow, although I'm sure it would look great in other colors, too (as others have mentioned).

This is one of my favorite patterns. I could make this over and over and every color combination would make it look unique.

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.

I love this! It looks so cool. Adding it to my ever-growing "to crochet" list!
