Tara Blanket Crochet Pattern

Tara Blanket Crochet Pattern

The Tara Blanket is full of texture and I love a good project with texture.  You can't get bored with a project when you are working it up with beautiful texture. This blanket consists a lot of front post and back post double crochet, but don't worry if you know basic crochet you will be able to work up this blanket and this blanket is so warm and it is a great snuggle up on the couch project!
