On Fridays, I share a link blast on Twitter and Facebook to get you excited about crocheting all weekend! In keeping with the #FlashbackFriday meme, I’m sharing patterns that were first released at least 12 months ago.
Whether you’re looking for a back-to-school project, holiday gift, or a centerpiece for a room makeover, one of these 12 free crochet patterns for child-sized blankets will do the trick! If you don’t have any children on your list, these all make great throws for sitting under while watching tv, too.
