Pattern for Magic Carpet Blanket

This hand-crocheted quilt uses front post and back post double crochets to mimic handstitched lines in this Trip Around the World pattern. The thick, warm blanket works equally well as a play mat for having tea with a few friends. Washable yarn means it cleans up easily.

Hook: Size H/8 (5 mm). Adjust hook size if necessary to obtain correct gauge. 
Notions: Yarn needle. 
Gauge: Block patt measures about 3 1⁄2" blocked.
