My brother's blanket
Last year I made this blanket for Chris. I loved the yarn so much that I bought enough for several more blankets. It's a clearance yarn now at Webs so the price was good. Occasionally Webs runs an additional sale on clearance yarn so I waited for that and seriously stocked up. Now I'm planning to make blankets for everyone! I'm starting with my brothers and working on them in age order. This is the first one and it's for Eddie.
The blanket I made for Chris was 58 x 76. It's huge because crochet also stretches. I decided that the rest of the blankets can be a little smaller. This one is still a great size at 46 x 64. I just love how this yarn works with the color transitions. It's beautiful.
I know from Chris' blanket that this yarn washes and dries well so it should last many years. I'm ready to start Tim's blanket in the color Cheyenne (browns) and still pondering if I will use this pattern or pick something different.
Here are all the details:
Here are all the details because I will make this one again:
Cascade Cartwheel Yarn, 7 balls, it's labeled color 18 but that color number doesn't exist. I think it's color 10 - Nashville.
Pattern from BagODay Crochet, pattern repeat is 8 stitches plus 3
I used a K hook and chained 147 stitches (with an L hook)

The blue is really pretty. Of course , blue IS my favorite color. it will be interesting to see it in browns if you use the same pattern.

Those are lovely blankets. I know you. Instead of using the same pattern and making life easy, you will try another pattern. Hopefully you don't end up with any issues.

Darn it. I KNEW I shouldn't click that link to look at the yarns. I knew it. Now I have a serious case of yarn envy and the only saving grace is that the yarn company isn't in Canada. Phew, dodged a bullet on that one.
