Twisting Braid Crochet Blanket

The Twisting Braids Crochet Blanket brings a feminine touch to Bernat Blanket yarn. This free beginner pattern teaches you how to form chain links by twisting the previous foundation row of the double crochet stitches, to make a braid-like effect. The blanket is finished with an interesting fringe, made by twisting the yarn and letting it coil around itself. The result? A sweet take on extra snuggly Bernat Blanket.
