Peacock, spruce, phlox, and white yarn makes up this Pretty Picnic Crochet Throw. Planning a romantic picnic with your significant other for Valentines Day? This blanket would be perfect. The yarn makes it super soft. You will have a fun time on your picnic. Pattern is given in two sizes.

The colors of this Pretty Picnic Throw are so GORGEOUS that I cannot help but make it, lol! Who would not want such beautiful throw in their home, never mind at a picnic. It is going to look just great in our family room and I already know exactly which one of my friends is also going to want one so I may as well get enough yarn to make two.

Oh my gosh, I am loving all of these picnic crochet afghans, blankets, and throws that I have found on this site today. Puts me in the mood to welcome Spring. It cant get warm fast enough for me. This pattern is so cute, I love it. Looks easy to do and its the perfect size.

What a great pattern for someone who is ready to work from a chart and do the color changes at the same time. After the first few rows it will fall into a routine and you will be finished in no time The colors are beautiful also.
