The Midnight Pumpkin Patch Crochet Blanket - FREE pattern - Chapter Five

Updated: Jan 29

The midnight pumpkin patch crochet blanket

This's where your, Midnight pumpkin patch crochet blanket really comes to life. Up till now you have created the start of our Midnight garden blanket using our alternative colour way, now we will be adding in a additional colour way of burnt orange for our pumpkins and more chapters.

The first few rows we'll be setting up the frame work and foundation to our 3D pumpkins.

Hope you ready? All I can say is be patient, take your time, this part of the blanket is all about stitch placement, this will be the key. Also if your finding your stitches are too tight, I would recommend going up a hook size, try half a mm, and this should help you adjust.
