Or maybe its an afghan? I looked up "afghan" on dictionary.com and it said, a soft woolen blanket, crocheted or knitted, usually in a geometric pattern. This blanket is not made of wool, but rather, ahem, acrylic yarn. Acrylic is less expensive and much more laundry friendly than actual wool. To me, an afghan sounds kind of grandma-ish and out of date. I like to think this is a modern blanket, hip and cool!
At any rate, the actual pattern is one big granny square... well not a square but actually a rectangle. It measures about 4 feet by 6 feet. I used two mega balls of yarn and didn't stop until it was all gone. That includes one round of double crochet trim and three rounds of single. I rather like the nice wide border.
And here's where this afghan/blanket will live, in my living room! The first crocheted blanket for our home! Well, Eli has one too.
Hazel has thoroughly tested out this blanket and she deems it snooze worthy, as you can plainly see.
Finally, I couldn't resist a quick shot with little Mr. He appears indifferent but I could tell he was really impressed with his moms new blanket. Plus it matches his eyes (so far.) *Grins*
