Welcoming the Pansy Parade Blanket crochet pattern!

I'm just a wee bit silly happy about this one! The texture, the simplicity, the fun! I worked this one up in 22 colors of Stylecraft Special DK--a lovely premium acrylic that is very affordable--but it could seriously be made in any yarns and any colors! A super-duper stash buster, I say!

This pattern is designed to work up to any dimensions very easily. Looky at what Brittany of R&L Crochet Co. made with her test sample--in neutrals it looks so clean and elegant!

The pattern is worked in strips that are joined-as-you-go. Super easy and super fun.

This pattern is rated at an intermediate skill level, only because the joining can be a little fiddly until you have it down. But in addition to the written pattern I've provided lots of photos with explanations to help through the joining process. Cool part, the picture section is separate so you don't need to use a lot of ink to print it. Just refer to it, if needed.

  8. Hi Susan, I bought this pattern and absolutely LOVE this blanket!!! I've already started making my second one since purchasing it a few weeks ago but I'm having trouble with the directions as far as attaching the second row to the first. I'm sure I'm just reading something wrong and the error is on my part but since I'm running into the same dilemma on the second try I figured I'd write you before proceeding. I can send you photos of my glitch and possibly that will help? anyway to try and explain it, it's saying on second strip, 59th petal should be a picot-join and both times I've made it the only picot I have to join it to is the tippy top one (60th petal from first strip) and this just doesn't look right compared to how I end throughout the rest of the blanket. Any help you can give me or advice would be welcomed.
    Thanks so much for sharing your beauties with the world!
