I decided to start a Facebook page dedicated to crochet. I will be posting quotes, patterns, yarn news, crochet magazine info, etc. If you would like to check out my new Facebook page and follow along click here. I will be checking to see how to add a Facebook follow button to my blog. (I have tried a few different methods but none have worked so far).
Now, the info about the finished blanket:
The finished size is 50" (127cm) X 50" (127cm), 69 rounds total, 34 of round 5, 34 of round 4 and one round for the edging.
After completing 68 rounds, The edging was done as follows:
join yarn to any ch 2 corner space, ch 3, 1 dc, ch 2, 2 dc, in the same space
sc in the next ch 2 space
*2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the next ch 2 space, sc in the next ch 2 space, continue in this manner along the side of the blanket to the next corner, 2 dc, ch 2, 2 dc in the next corner, sc in the next ch 2 sp and repeat from * around the blanket, end off, weave in ends.
Edging note: the yarn used for the tutorial photos is different than the yarn used to finish the blanket. It is hard to see the stitches made with black yarn in photographs, see photo below.
There you have it the finished blanket!
I hope you can see the edging in these photos to get an idea of what the finished blanket looks like.
This is a great project for a beginning crocheter since the stitches used are the chain (ch), single crochet (sc), and double crochet (dc). You can access the pattern here
