Here is my second attempt at a crocheted blanket. I'll have to get pictures up of my first one. I love the process of crocheting because I can do it anytime and virtually anywhere. So a row here and a row there eventually come together to create something. It does take awhile, so patience is a must!
I followed this blog's tutorial. However, I made the following revisions: I did not work the back loop of the single crochet but instead worked both loops (a basic single crochet, I guess?) I also did not do stripes; I chose to do an ombre blanket, so I used the whole skein (about 35 rows) and then moved onto the next color.
I used 1 skein each of Caron's Simply Soft yarn (6 oz.) in Country Blue, Soft Blue and White. I loved how it turned out- really quite soft.
