“Ribbon Canyon” is inspired by 1970s interior design and the undulating curve of a river, carving solid stone into sweeping canyons over the millennia. It looks complicated, but it’s simply a matter of taking time to understand how the pattern works and being meticulous during your setup. The whole design is built from a simple foundation. Once that’s completed, this project is a relaxing double crochet daydream.

Level: Intermediate or Ambitious Beginner. To complete this project you must be able to maintain even tension, stitch confidently into starting chains, and enjoy doing double crochet forevah!

I think you will find the varying techniques in this pattern to be more stimulating than thinking in rectangles, but not necessarily more complicated. It is an enjoyable make that you’ll be able to watch Netflix during after the first row.

This Special Edition Pattern has all the directions you need to create a blanket like the one on the cover. Includes written English directions with ample Charts, Diagrams and Photos for support. It has become a book as I’ve edited and updated and expanded the included resources.
