When I say a bit, I mean a lot. An awful lot. Enough to keep me busy since November! Now, this blanket is a commissioned one so I didn’t get to choose the colour. If I ever see Wendy mode in cypress again I might just scream! Oh, the browness of it. Its been a heap of brown bulging out of my work basket for months!
Its an enormous blanket – 160 x 260 cm. Yes, enormous. So big that I haven’t been able to take a decent photograph of it, so, here are some close ups…
The pattern is one I found on Ravelry, Erin Afgan by Lion Brand. The pattern is really good. I’ve made a few changes to it in order to avoid the dreaded moss stitch bits. Moss stitch looks pretty but I always make a pigs ear of it.
I thought this blanket would never end and I’m so glad its finished! I can get back to some crochet now. 🙂 Yippeee!!!!
You might be fed up with it but it is a stunning piece of work! Gorgeous.
