The Dragonfly Patch Crochet Blanket

The Dragonfly Patch Crochet Blanket

What could be better than a patch of dragonflies? I love dragonflies and am always looking at new ways to incorporate them into my designs.

I really have a thing for Dragonflies! I love days where you see them! A buzz of wings and they are gone on their way, about their day! You can try to chase them but they are not going to be caught!

I have to say I am pretty pleased with the end result of this design. The motif squares measure roughtly 25.4cm/10 inches (depending upon hook, yarn choice and tension).

The sky is the limit for how large you want this beauty to be, as it can easily be made larger with more motif squares added.

I used Bendigo Woollen Mill 8ply Cotton for this. The BWM cotton is a super soft yarn which is lovely to work with. Many different yarns could be used as a substitute.

The pattern can be found on Ravelry (Click Here), Etsy (Click Here) and on Lovecrafts (Click Here). I also have a pattern giveaway happening on my Facebook group, Two Redheads Crochet (Click here).

Pattern testing is a huge part of getting a design ready to publish. I am lucky enough to have some really incredible people who test for me. They have amazing patience and tolerance to my errors, or what I like to refer to as my boo, boos. Below is a few examples of their work.
