A family member is having a little boy soon so I wanted to make a cozy blanket for him. I really liked
I found online and adjusted it slightly to fit what I wanted. Also, I like the look of the edges so i didn't crochet the edging like in the pattern I found.
It took me 20 hours to make this blanket. I gave myself an hour each day to work on it and was able to finish it in 20 days. I wanted to share that because Christmas is right around the corner and that will give you an idea for your countdown. :)
Almost done. :)
Here's how I made it:
Finished size: 28" x 36"
I used 6 colors:
178 yds Berroco Comfort DK in Color 2763
178 yds Berroco Comfort DK in Color 2736
I'm not sure of the exact yardage I used of the following colors,
as I didn't use the entire skein of these:
Paton Beehive Baby Sport in Color Vintage Lace
Paton Beehive Baby Sport in Color Bonnet Blue
Lion Brand Baby Soft in Color Bluebell
Bernat Softee Baby in Color Pale Blue
5 mm crochet hook
Chain 151 stitches.
SK 1 chain from hook, *SC in next 11 stitches, 3 SC in the next stitch, 1 SC in next 11 stitches, SK 2 stitches. Repeat from * until the last SK 2 stitches. Instead, SK 1, 1 SC, CH 1 and turn.
Repeat for 18 rows. Switch to second color and repeat. Do this with each color until you've used all 6 colors. Weave in all ends. Block as needed.
Until next time...
