Sea Shell Princess Blanket - PDF Download


Welcome everyone to my first crochet pattern released in 2016, and my first post on my newly redesigned blog! I am so excited with how it turned out. It is so much more organized, and looking much more professional. I will be posting AT LEAST once a week with a new pattern, tutorial, recipe, or a fun SAHM post so be sure to check in regularly, or subscribe!



The Sea Shell Princess blanket pattern has been in my note book for a long time! Yes, I have a note book and a binder full of ideas, notes, half written patterns and doodles! I thought I was going to applique it, and even have that pattern written out, but as I was working through it again I just fell in love with the simplicity and elegance that the blanket had on its own.


It really reminds me of an heirloom blanket, one that would be cherished for a long time, and even passed down through the generations. It has a wonderful timeless feel to it with the delicate shells and texture, kind of like the knitted blanket that my grandmother made for me when I was a baby. It really evokes a sense of tradition for me!

However, I had a hard time coming up with a name for the blanket. Everything I came up with sounded silly. So, I showed it to my husband and he said, "Sea Shell Princess Blanket!" I thought it fit perfectly, so here we are!

As always, I welcome your comments, and would love to see pictures of the heirloom blankets that you make with this pattern!!
