There are lots of lovely crochet patterns and designs but few that take your breath away. Then there is this one. I literally gasped and felt my heart skip a beat when I found this beautiful blanket pattern. Every single stitch of this blanket appeals to my heart, from the pretty granny squares, to the mouth-watering color scheme, to the cute floral border. I think it’s perfect!
