I finally finished my last Christmas present!!! It’s sad to say, but I really did waste time with presents. I was so excited to finish this blanket, but I hate sewing, so I put it off until the last minute. I had every piece crocheted but put the project aside because of the sewing. I made this huge blanket for my niece who came to visit last weekend. I finally had a deadline to meet, so I slaved away to make the sewing actually happen. The entire blanket was made with Caron simply soft yarn. It took me so long to make the blanket that I actually do not remember how many skeins of yarn it took for the body. But I made sure I had a coupon every time I bought another skein! For the blanket and fish, I used the pattern from a Crochet Today! featuring an octopus blanket from a summer issue last year. I googled/used ravelry for the coral, seaweed, starfish, and jellyfish. I absolutely love my end result and hope I can make another one in a different theme!
I worked on this blanket for a friend over Christmas break and I thought it would take me just about a week or so to finish up at school. If I had just one more day completely off as I did for break, I could have finished it. This semester has been nuts so far, so I finally finished it before we left for spring break. Quatrefoils are huge in her sorority, so I figured this pattern was a must for her. Pink is also the sorority color and green is her favorite. She ended up loving it 🙂
