Textured Ombre Crochet Blanket
"This Textured Ombre Crochet Blanket will be a beautiful addition to the décor at the farmhouse. If you can double crochet, you can create this lovely afghan. This is one of those relaxing patterns that is easy to crochet with gorgeous results. Red Heart Ombre Yarn The colors of this ombre yarn are long. Therefore, this yarn lends itself to crocheting a large blanket like this one. I just love the hues of changing colors without the hassle of having to weave in tons of yarn ends. This was a very nice yarn to work with. This crochet pattern uses double crochet to achieve this beautiful textured look. Repeat rows 2-16 throughout. However, due to the turning at the end of each row, some of the row directions are slightly different."
