When turtle hatchlings head for the ocean, it’s called a “frenzy.” This blanket celebrates the turtles’ journey from the shore through the breakers to the deep blue sea.

This pattern is for the blanket only. Pattern for the baby sea turtles, Baby Sea Turtle Frenzy, is sold separately.

The baby blanket has various stripes for the beach, the surf, and three water depths. The stripes are made using a rippled Welting Fantastic pattern. The surf is depicted with ruffles that are made by picking up stitches after the blanket is completed.
