Here is the Sea Breeze blanket, a nice throw that would be perfect in my idea to use when you visit the beach, or maybe a picnic in the woods. It is a thick and really textured throw which has a summer and sea theme in it. But with a small change of colors i could imagine this blanket to be a cosy one in front of the fireplace while it is a cold and dark winter. Anyway, to use in many ways and the pattern is really easy. Just see how the stitches work and when you get it, just lay down, put on your Netflix or some good music and crochet along. It is made with Scheepjes Cahlista which is a really nice cotton that is perfect for this kind of projects. I think it also have a good price as it is not to expensive as a thicker yarn when you need a large amount of it. But of course you can also choose any other kind of yarn, i think an acrylic yarn type like Scheepjes Colour Crafter or Stylecraft DK would also be perfect for this.

Some general information about the pattern :
The pattern comes in English ( US terms ), and is also available in Dutch. The Dutch translation is made by Guanita de Haas-Höngens.

A crochet hook size 5,0 mm is needed.

I used Scheepjes Cahlista which comes in skeins of 50 grams with a length of 85 meters. Of course you can use any yarn type or brand for this pattern. So feel free to do as you like.

For this blanket is used :

Color A : 425 grams of 106 Snowwhite ( 9 skeins )

Color B : 30 grams of 509 Baby Blue ( 1 skein )

Color C : 50 grams of 385 Chrystaline ( 1 skein )

Color D : 35 grams of 253 Tropic ( 1 skein )

Color E : 30 grams of 514 Jade ( 1 skein )

Color F : 15 grams of 401 Dark Teal ( 1 skein )

Color G : 15 grams of 392 Lime Juice ( 1 skein )

Color H : 30 grams of 513 Apple Granny ( 1 skein )

Color I : 20 grams of 389 Apple Green ( 1 skein )

Color J : 35 grams of 515 Emerald ( 1 skein )

Color K : 20 grams of 391 Deep ocean Green ( 1 skein )

Stitch use in this blanket are really basic ones and belong to the random crochet terminology.

The finished size of the blanket will be : 105 cm x 80 cm / 41,3 inches x 31,4 inches

But making the blanket bigger or wider is so easy ! The pattern tells you how to do it and as it are all individual parts this is very easy. You even could use only one part out of the blanket.

As an upcoming pattern designer i use a lot of time, effort and yarn into my designs. Besides that there goes a lot of my free time communicating with testers, questions and of course reacting to all your lovely comments. So for the latest designs i made, i asked a small amount of money to make this all possible. However, i do understand that not everyone has a lot of money and without people who like what i do, i can design anything but it would never find any users.

So here is a thank you from me as a designer to you ! Once in a while i give a pattern away for free ! Just my way to say thank you for following me, like my projects, give me such positive comments or just making my patterns.
