Checkered Racing Flag Picnic Blanket
My 4 year old son loves everything from trains to racecars and especially the new Disney movie “Cars”. He loves the outdoors and we spend a lot of time outside. I wanted to make a picnic blanket for us, and more importantly, for him. This pattern is my version of a checkered race flag. It is simply crocheted squares of alternating black and white, sewn together at the end. I used worsted weight yarn, doubled, on a 10mm crochet hook.
You will need:
- 800 yards each of black and white super bulky yarn (sample shown in Caron One Pound, 2 balls each of black and white, yarn doubled throughout)
- 10mm crochet hook
- tapestry needle
