In my search for a new crochet blanket pattern to work up I found some really great patterns on ravelry and on the net. Here are my top picks for Fall 2009.

Airy Spring Throw by Marianne Forrestal
In the Crochet Today! Mar/Apr 2009 issue
Salem by the Berroco design team.
Another great crochet blanket pattern by Berroco!
Available in the #273 NaturLin booklet.
These are great patterns that get away from the traditional granny square afghans (those are sometimes cool too, but…). I’ve found that cotton is a great way to spice things up in the blanket world, I generally choose a wool or acrylic blend but the new cotton’s that are out there wear beautifully and are easy on the hands. Try linen too!
