Chunky Bumble Berries Lapghan ~
Free Crochet Pattern
This Chunky Bumble Berries Lapghan is a great way to make someone feel extra special. Over the years this small blanket or afghan has had many names: wheelchair blanket, lap robe, small adult blanket, and now Lapghan. It is a small square or narrow rectangle blanket that just fits over the lap and hangs down to covers the legs.
These make great charity or gift items for Senior homes, nursing homes, VA Hospitals, children’s wards, to name a few. It needs to be narrow enough that it stays within the boundaries of the wheelchair. Be sure to share this lapghan with your fellow crafty friends! Enjoy!
