So many beautiful stitches in Part 2 of the Spring Rhapsody Blanket and I have photo & video tutorials for all 5! Just click any of the links below to go directly to each tutorial:  One note about the tutorials – the instructions are intended to help you with the stitch repeats in the blanket but instructions are provided so that you can take the stitch to additional projects as well. Be sure to follow the written pattern instructions of the blanket as the stitches were adapted to the stitch count of the blanket. The stitch repeats are the same but the number of stitches at the beginning and end of each row may differ from the videos.  Subscribe to my YouTube Channel so you never miss a video!
