The Floralia blanket is suitable for everyone from the adventurous beginner to the expert crocheter. The free pattern, which will be in eight weekly parts, will be posted  here on the Pippin Poppycock website and in the Pippin Crochet Club on Facebook.

At Pippin we allow yarn freedom, meaning you can substitute colors and come up with your own special Floralia in fact we like to encourage, I love seeing your creativity. We also understand that sometimes our available options in yarn brands is dependent on many factors, so just because you cant get your hands on my kits or the brand of yarn I recommend doesn’t mean you can’t take part in the crochet along. You may want to go diving into your stash or running out to your local yarn store and picking up whats local to you.
