Mom and I are supposed to meet up with my cousin for lunch today so I've been pushing to get this blanket done for her husband. Barclay went to college at University of Richmond and the school colors are blue and red. When I started making this one he was the first person I thought of.
This is the 5th blanket that I've made with this pattern. It finished about 47" x 66". I have enough yarn to make 3 more big blankets and 1 small blanket. Good thing I'm not tired of this yarn but I might use a different pattern on the next one.
This yarn is so soft and squishy and makes a beautiful blanket. It's too bad it's discontinued but there are lots of other similar yarns available. Premier Puzzle comes to mind.
I can hardy believe that I finished 4 of these this year along with 8 other small blankets for donations. But most of the patterns I choose, especially this one, go really fast.
Here are all the details:
Cascade Cartwheel Yarn, 7 balls,
Pattern from BagODay Crochet, pattern repeat is 8 stitches plus 3
I used a K hook and chained 147 stitches (with an L hook)

You are a crocheting machine! I watched about 10 minutes or so of the video - it seems very complicated, with all that counting and different sequences of stitches on each row.

Another beautiful blankie that will be loved I know. I'm toying with making another mile-a-minute just to use up some of my oddments of yarn. I don't suppose it would matter overly much if the weights in the 'miles' were different.
