Recently, a good friend of mine named Vanessa (a HodgePodger from the HodgePodge Crochet Group who runs the amazing page Bobbles & Baubles on facebook and who you can also find over at http://bobblesandbaubles.com/ where she has FREEBIES) posted this glorious blanket that she made as a gift.
Of course the group all reacted the same way as you are right now–we had to have this pattern!! Unfortunately, Bernat (who offered this pattern for free over on their website until they decided to update their look and revamp to reflect an edgier and more modern style) no longer had this gorgeous pattern up on their site. There were tears and a few HOW COULD YOU DO THIS TO US, BERNAT!!! rants making the rounds.
But never fear. If you’re as enamored with this blanket as we all were you can get your own copy simply by clicking this link–> Crochet Stripes by Bernat <– Print or save to your computer and enjoy!!
