December challenge – the snuggly one

This month’s challenge is my biggest yet. A house-warming / Christmas present for a friend. Her living room colour scheme is grey and mustard, and this is a throw for her sofa:

Made in Drops Nepal Unicolour ‘Goldenrod’ on a 7mm hook using the corner to corner technique. It measure 175 x 95 cm and took 28 balls of yarn.

It is 85 by 50 squares, so 4,250 squares in total, or 12,750 stitches – worth the effort I think!

Doing it well

There is a phrase that goes ‘If you are going to do something, do it well’ and this blanket, which a friend of mine is making, brings it to mind:

She is a beginner (can you believe it?) who took some lessons a few weeks ago and decided to start her crochet journey with this linen stitch blanket (see here for the pattern). Made in Drops Alaska Off white and Grey mix on a 6.5mm hook.

I am so impressed with her progress so far, and excited to think that there may be more great crochet things to come!
