Gingham Crochet Corner to Corner
Blanket in LionBrand Wool-Ease
Yarn – Free Pattern
LionBrand Wool-Ease is a worsted weight acrylic / wool blend, perfect for anything from blankets to socks!
My favorite thing about Wool-Ease yarn by LionBrand is all the colors available!
It is so soft, easy to work with, and feels even better after it is washed a few times.
I chose this wonderful yarn for my latest design – This image was a hit on Instagram and appreciated by LionBrand fans, initiating a request for a pattern. Of course I wanted to share it!!
