Doesn’t this blanket remind you of 1980s California? It’s all about vintage colors with a landscape inspiration: sunshine, sea, sand, sunsets, and trees. Worked mainly with double crochet stitches, this blanket is pretty straightforward and quick to make. You should also be familiar with working around the posts (or willing to learn).
California is built with motifs that are then worked together to create this throw. You could easily size up or down to increase or decrease the size depending on its purpose. As written, the blanket measures 50” x 58” = perfect beach blanket size.
