Never Fear, the crochet version is here! Do you really think I would leave all of my crochet peeps out of the Welcome-to-the-blog free pattern?!? Not likely. I have used the same Bernat Mega Bulky yarn from Yarnspirations as I used in the knit version to create this gorgeous single-crochet throw. The yarn is amazingly thick and warm, 100% acrylic, and has a gorgeous luster that gives beautiful stitch definition. Because the yarn is so thick, this blanket works up in no time flat. On with the pattern...
