Bobble Field Blanket Free Crochet Pattern
The bobble field blanket is a wonderful, luxuriant example of a richly textured blanket with thick, squishy bobbles throughout its surface. The stitching itself is not particularly difficult, but the sheer scope of the blanket may look daunting. Never fear, this is a very good project for the ambitious beginner and a whole lot of fun for the more advanced of us. Make, enjoy and relax with this luxuriant bedspread.
