quick crochet blanket


I made this blanket in one day.

Granted, I worked on it about all day.  But still, I think a day is pretty good.  All of the other blankets I've made have taken me at least a month to make.

  2. (whoops, sorry for the deletion above...grammar issue)

    I love this blanket! I had a question or two though. Did you use the whole skein for each color? It looks like there are 9 colors, so I'm assuming one skein per row. I am collecting my skeins with Michael's 40% off coupon each week and now have 1 dark blue, 1 maroon, 1 med brown w/flecks, and 3 aran w/flecks (had these for a few years now). I still want at least two other colors. How big is your blanket?

    1. Thanks, Margo! I'm so glad you like it! I love those Michael's coupons- they just take a lot of trips. I'm excited to hear you're making it though! Yes, you're right. I used nine skeins of yarn and I used a whole skein for each color. Because I use my blanket, I know it has stretched a little. But in the end, mine was around 4 by 6 feet. Let me know if you have any more questions!

    2. Thank you, Audrey, that helps! I think I'll use the 3 lighter skeins intermixed with the rest. That way, I will only need buy 3 more skeins/colors. I'm looking forward to making this and will let you know when it's finished (with a link to a picture). Thanks again!
