I have a project to share today which I have eventually finished after starting it some 9+ years ago when my 10 year old was a baby and I used to sit with him whilst he went to sleep.
For the last 9+ years it has been sat abandoned in a box as I got extremely bored of doing the motifs. So I picked it up and decided to finish it.
I had to make about 10 more motifs, which took me an age as I had forgotten what to do. On that basis I thought I would give up with the motifs and just crochet the remainder of the wool….much quicker!
I changed the stitch half way through the white section, firstly to relieve boredom and secondly as a design feature to add interest.
I always finish any blanket with a crochet border of a few rows of trebles and then a couple of rows of half trebles. I like to do this as it makes the edge a bit thicker and more defined. As I was using up all the wool I actually got 4 rows of half trebles on this one.
The blanket turned out huge in the end, perfect for a double bed. Not so perfect for my naughty puppies feet though.
I hope you like it.
I wonder what else is lurking in my unloved and abandoned box (or boxes)?
