A Pretty Useful Blanket
EU Crocheters: this pattern has been submitted to LoveKnitting, and will be available as soon as possible!
Everyone needs a pretty, useful blanket - preferably one that's fun to make, engaging, and doesn't take forever! This pattern is only 8 rounds long, and the number of color variations you can use are sure to keep you engaged!
Many sizes are available, from a lovey to a king size beadspread, and you might end up making them all, because once your friends and family see you making one of these blankets, they're all going to want one (ask me how I know)!
If you're worried about gauge or consistency, this is the pattern for you! My motifs varied from 8 to 9 inches from point to point, because I used lots of different scraps of yarn, and they still joined together fine, because they were all the same weight, and this pattern is super flexible! You just want to make sure your motifs are lying flat (i.e. using a large enough hook), and you'll be fine!
