You Can Crochet This! – Happy Little Tree Crochet Blanket Pattern
Check out the other patterns for absolute beginners in the You Can Crochet This! series.
Hi, y’all! Welcome to my first pattern tutorial geared toward absolute beginners. Happy Little Tree is an engaging, yet stunningly simple piece that you’ll enjoy making as much as you enjoy the finished product. Plus, Bob Ross, am I right??
If you’d rather cut right to the chase, or you just want to support my tiny fiber art empire, you can also find the Happy Little Tree Crochet Blanket Pattern in an ad-free, easy to print PDF for a small fee on the following sites:
Ravelry // Craftsy // Etsy // LoveCrochet.com (Coming Aug. 2)
PDF version includes written and charted instruction and is condensed for ease of printing, so step-by-step photo instruction and video links are omitted.
After spending so much time staring longingly at my Scheepjes Stone Washed and River Washed Cutie Pie Pack, I finally decided to design something for it. One of my goals for 2018 is to have a no-waste spirit, so I wanted to use every inch of yarn. I thought a fun and quirky granny square blanket would be perfect. Join as-you-go to make sure nothing is wasted, and of course since this blanket is in the Relaxghan Series (designed with peace in mind), I had to give it a special, peaceful name.
Who exudes peace more than Bob Ross? So the Happy Little Tree Blanket was born.
