Yesterday was my monthly meeting with the knit and crochet group at the Ashland library. I only take my donation projects to work on there and I was able to finish this baby blanket. I suppose they could decided to use it for a wheelchair blanket and I trust the ladies at the charity to find the best home for it.
Here are the details:
Pattern is Alpenhaus Easy Crochet Throw
Yarn is Lion Brand Mandala Ombre in the color Happy, 3 cakes
Chained 180 stitches with a J hook, worked pattern with I hook.
Finished size approximately 27" x 36"
I could have made it a bit bigger because I have one more cake but I'm using it to make a hat and scarf set, also for donation.
This yarn is so soft and squishy. I wish Lion Brand would come out with new colors. This is the second blanket I've made with this yarn and I have another color to make a third. I really like the linen stitch (combination of single crochet and chain 1) and it works really well with the self-striping yarns. This pattern is a keeper too!
So, there's one more finish for the month of October. It might actually be the only finish for the month!
