My ‘Picnic on the Beach’ blanket is an 8 week crochet along (CAL) pattern starting on Friday 26th February, 2021. All the details will remain on my website indefinitely so that the blanket can be made at anytime for years to come.

A printer friendly PDF is available in my Ravelry Store. This will be updated each week during the CAL so that at the end of the 8 week CAL the pattern will be there in full.

All the information about the CAL with yarn quantities and colours is over on my blog… https://coastalcrochet.com/2021/01/21/an-introduction-to-...

It will be a rectangular blanket measuring approximately 135cm x 105cm (53 inches x 41 inches).

I’ve used lots of different crochet techniques so there’s plenty to learn if you haven’t tried these stitches before. I will be doing YouTube videos for the less familiar stitches.

There’s Tunisian Entrelac, Basketweave and plenty of raised stitches to give you an idea. And there had to be some gingham checks in there somewhere! Inspired by the quintessential picnic colours for blankets and tablecloths…

I would love for this crochet along to be more than just about crocheting the blanket… let’s enjoy sharing picnic spots around the world, favourite picnic foods and recipes, fond picnic memories and then all those picnic plans! :) Especially as we emerge from the worldwide pandemic and can begin to look forward to picnic gatherings once more…
