I know that the MCAL is drawing to a close, but I'm already thinking of alternate colours and yarns to make a blanket from the pattern! This rainbow Papatya Batik would make for a very bright and fun blanket.

Yarnish Advent MCAL 2018 - Day 19

I hope you have been enjoying the MCAL! It was designed for the busy crocheter- maybe you are still making gifts for others, but you want some time to do something just for yourself!
