Beachcomber Blanket Crochet Pattern
The Beachcomber Blanket crochet pattern is the first pattern added to the Beach Getaway Collection. The yarn, combined with a bit of texture, creates an amazing beachy look. Perfect for curling up on the beach when their is a cool summer breeze or throwing over the back of the couch in your lakeside cottage.
It comes in 3 sizes, but it is very easily adjusted to any size you’d like. It also has an easy 2 row repeat which makes it a great on-the-go project.
Whether you have your own beach house, or just love to make projects for your favorite vacation spot, you’re going to love the Beach Getaway Collection.
Beach Getaway = a place where one escapes for relaxation, vacation, etc., or a period of time for such recreation: a little seaside getaway.
And after the last couple of years I am so ready to escape and relax. So, I had the idea to create a collection of patterns all named with a beach theme.
If you’d like to see all the patterns from the Beach Getaway Collection you can find them at the bottom of this post (they will be added as they are released).

- Written in baby size with other sizes in parenthesis.
- Gauge swatch is provided if you would like to try a smaller version to check gauge. This can help make sure you understand the pattern before starting with a really long chain.
- Size can be adjusted by adding or subtracting in multiples of 2+1 (ex: add 16 chains).
- Yardage varied based on testers brand choices vs the Caron Big Cakes, so I used the larger amounts to be on the safe side.
