This hand crocheted blanket would be perfect for a beach themed nursery or childs room. It would also make a great lap blanket for an adult. I have created it with washable acrylic yarn in shades of turquoise, aqua, beige and brown. The ripple pattern looks like the ocean with waves surrounded by a sandy beach. I have sewn on appliques of starfish, a shell and a darling baby sea turtle, sure to delight any age. This 12 point star shaped throw measures 38 inches.
