Homemade blankets always seem to find an owner and a home. They are always in use. Homepsun ones are particularly warm and then are totally original. We all liked Karin’s homespun crochet blanket because of the visual effect and the colours. Homespun loves being crocheted. You can make blankets from crochet afghans but his one is a once piece blanket and it looks lovely.
There are some good, free crochet blanket patterns on Favecrafts.
