I believe in telling a story through my crochet patterns. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year and I love creating blankets that cause me to reminisce about days gone by. The Fireside Christmas Sampler Blanket is no different. When I was designing this blanket, I hearkened back to when I was a child growing up in Northern Wisconsin. I remember Christmas as being cozy, warm, and magical. From the crackling of the fire to the glow of the lights on the tree to the packages wrapped in brown paper…it is a core happy memory and I want to share it with you.
I have included a full free video tutorial on YouTube to help you through the tricky parts of the blanket. They are in a convenient playlist located HERE.
I have teamed up with Tonya of Nana's Crafty Home to provide this pattern free. You can find it free to view HERE.
Thank you to my testers, Alisha and Mik.
