Disclaimer: this blanket is a gift to the two talented individuals that created this website space for me. It hasn’t made it to the post office yet but it will be on its way as soon as this Momma can get her act together. Very talented friends, you know who you are.
I’m so excited to share this particular project with you! By now I’m sure you are aware of my blanket obsession. And I fall in love with everything I make. But this blanket, made for the lovely lady and her fiance who are responsible for this beautiful website you are now viewing, is a particular favorite. It is SO soft, and so squishy. It’s super chunky because it is done with two strands of yarn (from separate skeins) held together throughout. I can’t wait to make more and experiment with different color combinations. This will definitely be a blanket well loved by your entire family, ever present on the back of a couch or your favorite chair. Hope my friends enjoy it in their new home!
The stitches in this blanket are thick and soft.
Here’s the pattern (general guidelines?) if you’d like to make your own!
A note about the yarn- I wanted to keep this simple and easy so I chose “Sensations Sincerely” large balls of yarn in cream, gray and black. I use two skeins of each color. You could probably use any yarn with similar results, I just can’t advise you on exactly how much yarn you would need to achieve the desired large blocks of each color. This yarn creates a finished blanket that ends up being about 4′ by 5′.
I used a very large, size H hook so my blanket would stay loose and soft.
Hold together two strands of yarn (the starting strand from each ball of the same color) for the entire project.
6 skeins Sensations Sincerely yarn (two skeins of each color)
Large crochet hook (size H or J works well- but check the recommended hook size on your yarn label)
