Sanibel Crochet and Chill Blanket Free Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Sanibel Crochet Blanket Pattern is inspired by the colors of the beaches and gulf in Sanibel, Florida. I had such a blast years ago on a trip to the island with my two sisters. Let's just say we laughed a lot.

And with every good memory, it's nice to have a token to remind you of that moment in time. I wanted this crochet blanket pattern to reflect the easiness and comfort we felt on that trip. I've designed a fun crochet stitch repeat that adds a lot of texture for warmth, just like the pebbled on the beach and the sun on our backs.

The easy stitch repeat and pops of texture are relaxing to work up. This can be worked in a solid color, 3 colors, or even 6 colors.
