Shady Grove Crochet Blanket

Shady Grove Crochet Blanket

Picture yourself lounging on a warm day under some trees and you'll get that effect through the Shady Grove Crochet Blanket. The gray and colored yarns blend seamlessly into one another creating a soft and luxurious blanket. There's a tiny bit of sparkle in the Red Heart yarn, which makes this crochet blanket even more intriguing. Don't let the color gray stop you from working it up because the other colors balance out the bland gray. You'll definitely want to snuggle up in this throw when it's too cold to venture outside.

The Shady Grove Crochet Blanket which is mostly in gray suggests an atmosphere of sadness, dreariness, and gloom. Some people would probably use this blanket mostly during the winter months but I feel that this would add to the gloomy atmosphere. I suggest that you use vibrant colors during the cold and gloomy months to cheer you up.

This reminds me of the look of moss or gardens in fairytales.

am I missing something? I cannot find the # for a beginning chain.

Hi djhixson, We apologize - it seems the pattern was entered incorrectly. It's been updated - to begin, you ch 98. Thanks! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns
