Introduction
The design for Carefree came to me when I was feeling the urge to design yet another hexagon motif. Combining intuitive repeats and simple shapes, I created the motif, and the rest of the pattern wrote itself, completely living up to its name. Gotta love it! Includes Cherry Blossom Edging

I follow hashtags: #CarefreeBlanket and #CypressTextiles
