Free Crochet Pattern - No Place Like Home



I try to place projects on the blog that I have either tried 
or
 would love to try
 but 
there is not enough time in the world to make everything I want.
So...
This blanket I would love to make but right now 
I am making a chunky blanket. 
I will take a picture of it when it is done in the meanwhile...

Ta Da....
