Crochet Sand and Surf Blanket
The Crochet Sand and Surf Blanket is a super fast, easy pattern. I crocheted this one in just 4 days and still was quite busy with other things.
I really love the look of the Bernat Tie Dye-ish yarn! It was my first time trying it and the coloring is so pleasing to me. I have recently relocated to Florida and was looking for some lighter colors for my new home. I think these will fit nicely, but of course, use what ever colors that give you joy.
