The Desertscape Crochet Blanket is an ode to all things lovely, prickly, and desolate in the desert. As you crochet, you’ll explore a saguaro forest (sa-WAH-ro) in bloom, the ribs of a barrel cactus, jagged mountains and monuments that lift to an unyielding desert sun. Once done, your blanket will capture the essence of desert life.
