Well folks, today I finished the project I was sure would never end.
I used this pattern to create the blanket. It’s a really simple single crochet chevron design that looks fabulous in pastel baby colors.
I used a size K crochet hook and 11 skeins total of Lion Brand Baby’s First yarn – 3 skeins of Pixie Dust (white) and 2 skeins each of Sea Sprite (blue), Bean Stalk (green), Honey Bee (yellow), and Fairy Tale (pink). The yarn claims to be a bulky weight, but I say it’s more of a heavy worsted.
The blanket took my lazy self almost a year to complete. I think a normal person could have it done in a month.
I didn’t measure it because I lost my tape measure. Anyone surprised? Anyone? If I had it to do again, I’d make it a little wider. But, it’s fine as it is. Right now it’s going through the wash while I grit my teeth. I hope it comes out in one piece!
