Even though I’ve been dealing with sickness at home, I think I got this weaving figured out. The flowers are staying on the blanket without the looseness I saw before. Which is great because I’d hate to have to fix it again! 🙂
This project has been a great experience because I have learned that I can design something of my own while modifying other patterns to work for the project. I love the look of this blanket. It is a heavy blanket, so it’s great to curl up on the couch with while you’re watching television, or whatever you’re doing.
This project took quite a bit of yarn. For every ball of the
Bernat Baby Sport White 3 weight (which is 1077 yards), I used 3-4 balls of
Red Heart Super Saver Minty 4 weight. For the flowers, I didn’t use a whole skein of either the
Red Heart Super Saver Perfect Pink 4 weight,
Red Heart Super Saver Aran 4 weight,
Red Heart Super Saver Cafe Latte 4 weight, or the
Mainstays Basic Yarn Green 4 weight. Credits for any patterns I modified and used for the flowers are in my last blog post, Moss Stitch Blanket: The Grueling Process of Design.
Let me know what you think!
