Sand & Sea Baby Blanket Free Crochet Pattern
Everyone loves vacation . . . . or at least I think they do! The sand & sea is relaxing and exactly what most of us need from time to time.
The Beach Getaway Collection has that feel. And whether you have your own beach house, or just want to make a project that will remind you of your favorite vacation spot, you’re going to love the Sand & Sea Blanket.
Beach Getaway = a place where one escapes for relaxation, vacation, etc., or a period of time for such recreation: a little seaside getaway.
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).
