A crochet stitch sampler…
Since people have been stitching, the sampler has been a way to catalogue and show a collection of possibilities, made by needle, knitting pins or in this case, crochet hook. This blanket uses an elegant join to display your choice of blanket motifs off to their full advantage

Pattern Description
A guide to constructing a blanket from a range of crochet squares. The pattern will show you how to join the squares and how to add a border.

Skill Level
Basic and intermediate stitches used and photo tutorials are linked. However, some time is needed to decide on stitch placement. Experience of Join As You Go may be useful.
