I had no expectations to finish this blanket before February. When I started it seemed like such a big and overwhelming project. Instead it was fast and easy and only took about 5 weeks!
You can see it all spread out here and it's huge! It measures 58" x 76". He can wrap one end around his feet and snuggle the other end under his chin. It's so soft and squishy too!
I love how the yarn transitions colors. It actually made making it more fun make. I didn't get bored because I enjoyed watching how the colors change.
Here are all the details because I will make this one again:
Cascade Cartwheel Yarn, 9 balls, color 09 - San Diego, about 2900 yards
Pattern from BagODay Crochet, pattern repeat is 8 stitches plus 3
I used a K hook and chained 171 stitches, after 7, 8 and 9 balls I'd hold it up and ask Chris if it was long enough. It was long enough after 9 balls and I have 2 left over. I finished with a row of single crochet.
