After months of working on and off again (mainly in cars, or when I was marathoning stuff on my dvr) I’m finally done!
This blanket was made by alternating rows of single crochet and double crochet (US) [ with two strands of yarn and a 9mm hook ], and then I worked all around it in sc-dc-sc for the edging. The final size was pretty much how I estimated it, which was big enough to wrap around myself when I’m hanging out on the couch or in front of my computer. For size comparison, those first pictures are how big it is when on our king size bed. Since I doubled up the yarn, it’s pretty thick and really warm!
I’m glad I’m finally done with it - just in time to put it away because summer temps are making our house too warm to use it!
