This is a blanket composed of 20 knitted intarsia blocks seamed together with simple crochet techniques. Finished size: 45x59 inches.

The pattern suggests Vickie Howell for Caron Sheep(ish) yarn. I used Plymouth Encore Worsted and loved the results! I had to go up to size 13 needles for it to be at the correct gauge.
