The Midnight Pumpkin Patch Crochet Blanket - FREE pattern - Chapter Eight - Granny square - Firework

Updated: Jan 30


In chapter 8 we will be working on our mini projects, which is great since the blanket is getting super heavy at the point.


You will need to make four of these squares, for all your four corners. Then we will join them together using the double crochet method to create a raised texture.


We have created one video to support this section, which is now located in our pumpkin patch playlist on YOU TUBE.


If you are only just discovering our Pumpkin Patch Blanket, and would like to buy our kit. This is still available from our shop. The pattern is free via our blog. We will be creating a interactive pdf that can be bought through ETSY at some point.
